Upcoming Educations

The Department of Neuroscience has recently been approved to run a new 2-year MSc education in Neuroscience and a 1-year Master in Neuro-Rehabilitation. Both educations will be launched in September 2020. 

An overview

IN is responsible for the majority of all formal education in neuroscience at the University of Copenhagen, and more broadly, in the greater Copenhagen area.
