    Hello!


    I would just like to ask which university, situated in the United Kingdom, would be the best choice to study at if one chooses to either take the course neurology or neuroscience?


    (I'm sorry. I didn't know exactly where I should post this. T_T)

    You'd have to do MBBS first, then masters then proceed to neuroscience. Or you can study a science (related) and masters, then do a PhD. Imperial, queen Mary, UCL, kings are to look at for MBBS. It depends what you want to do. If you want to practise or research?

    Neuroscience is offered at undergraduate level at many universities e.g. Nottingham

    Neurology on the other hand is a sub-speciality of medicine.

    Do you have any reason for saying this other than a preference for being in London? The OP has not expressed such a preference.

    One of my friends wants to do neuroscience and she found that Leeds is a good uni for this course but I think its a combined degree with chemistry.

    The person asked where would be best to study. These universities are prestigious and it is much more likely to get a job from these universities.

    With an MBBS? Where's your evidence?

    Edit: Since we are quite obviously talking prestige in general and not specific to Medicine here, I might also point out that Queen Mary and KCL are very much not as prestigious as a hell of a lot of other universities in the UK that you failed to mention. And Oxford and Cambridge are more prestigious than anything you mentioned. Please still answer my questions above, though.

    Tbf, if you do want to do neurology, the London medical schools especially UCL (i.e. Queen's Square/NHNN) are second to none...Durham (just as an example) is a prestigious university for sure, but it's not particularly renowned for neuro research afaik.

    Do you really feel the impact of research during your MBBS, though, wherever you are?

    Cambridge, Oxford, Edinburgh and Manchester do quite well for themselves in neurological research as well. Each school has a different disease focus, so if you are truly interested in research and know what you want the university that you want will truly depend on what specific field you are interested in.

    For medicine. These are the highest for medicine. Oxford and Cambridge do not offer MBBS which is bachelors in medicine and surgery. They only offer medicine alone at undergraduate.
    Imperial, Ucl, kcl, queen Mary do offer MBBS. I should also add Birmingham. These are well known for MBBS.

    St.Georges University in London is part of the St.Georges teaching hospital in which they have one of the best neurosugery units in the country with I think the second largest patient load (could be wrong about that).

    My dad had surgery there just before christmas, I'm planning to study grad entry medicine there starting 2015.

    ... Words cannot describe how idiotic this post was...

    Oxford = BM BCh
    Cambridge = MB BChir

    These are Bachelor of Medicine and Surgery degrees no different from the MBBS.

    You are also wrong on Birmingham as it is a MB ChB degree which is ALSO the same as the MBBS.

    In an ideal world all the degrees would be the same to eliminate unnecessary confusion but it is.

    Hahaha, i guess the rest of us getting BMBS degrees are also fake doctors then too.

    BMBS = MBBS = MBChB = MBBChir = MBBCh = BM

    They are all the same Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery Degree.

    Do you want to study Neuroscience, or do you want to be a doctor and specialise in Neurology?
