Want to understand the cause and treatment for neurological and psychiatric disorders and diseases such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer's, schizophrenia and major depression? Neuroscience is a truly modern and multidisciplinary subject which seeks to understand the most complex organ in the body; the nervous system. Our degree covers pharmacy and biomedical sciences as well as cognitive and physiological psychology. This is one of only a handful of courses that offers this multidisciplinary approach and you’ll learn how the brain and nervous system work to alter behaviour, perception, mood and memory. You’ll be able to tailor your degree in your final year by studying the modules which appeal to you the most and which ultimately you will specialise in, giving you a well-rounded background to further your future career in the Neuroscience field.

For changes to 2017 UCAS tariff entry requirements please see our Essential and Important Course Information. UCLan requires all undergraduate applicants to have a minimum attainment of five GCSEs at grade C and above, or equivalent, (including Maths and English). In 2017 and beyond we will view the new Grade 4 as being equivalent to a C grade and will therefore require students to achieve GCSE Grade 4 or above. However, if the subject is relevant to our degree programme and requires a higher GCSE grade (e.g. GCSE B grade), and/or includes a Professional body that governs the entry requirements, Grade 5 or above may be required.
