The two-year Research Master in Cognitive and Clinical Neuroscience focuses on cognition, brain, and behaviour and is designed for excellent students who wish to pursue a career in research. Each year, 24 students can be admitted to each specialisation. In order to promote your development as a scientist, you will closely interact with the academic staff and you will have a personal mentor from the beginning of the programme.


This is an English-language programme with five specialisations:

• Cognitive Neuroscience

• Drug Development and Neurohealth

• Fundamental Neuroscience

• Neuropsychology

• Psychopathology

All specialisations contain a course in which small teams address a chosen theme in a research proposal that integrates viewpoints and expertise of several specialisations. The first year highlights theoretical foundations and focuses on the acquisition of the theoretical, methodological and statistical skills necessary to participate in ongoing research. The second year is largely dedicated to the master’s research internship and thesis. In some specialisations, students may also complete a clinical research internship.
