Education in Neuroscience
Programmes and Courses
Basic education in Neuroscience is provided within different education programmes at Karolinska Institutet.
A course in Neuroscience (Neuroscience@KI) is given in association with the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH, Stockholm). This course is only available for students registered in a programme at KTH.
The Masters Programme in Biomedicine at KI offers, for the second-year students, a Neuroscience-track. This track begins with a series of six one-week courses (see Frontiers Courses in Neuroscience, below). Each course qualifies for course credits at the Doctoral level. Masters students apply to this track via the Course Director of the Masters programme.
Advanced Course in Neuroscience
The 20-week Advanced Course in Neuroscience begins with a series of six one-week courses (see Frontiers Courses in Neuroscience, below). Each course qualifies for course credits at the Doctoral level. The course period is followed by a 14-week project work in a neuroscience laboratory. The project work may be divided into two 7-week projects.
For general information regarding formal admission requirements we refer to the Admissions Office.
