Msc's: Bristol Molecular Neuroscience Vs Sheffield Translational Neuroscience watch

    • Thread Starter

    Dear all

    I'm currently stuck between picking Bristols Molecular neuroscience MSC and Sheffields Translational Neuroscience MSC.

    Bristols course: http://www.bristol.ac.uk/clinical-sc.../neuroscience/

    Sheffield's Course:http://www.sheffield.ac.uk/postgradu...uroscience-msc

    I was wondering what you guys would advise?

    Sheffield offers a 20 week research project, mathematical modelling of neurons.
    Bristol only has a 12 week research project but the module list seems more complete to that of Sheffield's and Bristol is higher on the league tables. Bristol however for some reason needs 75% in order to finish with distinction whilst Sheffield like many other unis require 70%.
    I've never been to either places and just from reading reviews Bristol seems receive more praise than Sheffield.

    Bristol heavily states that lecture attendance is monitored and thus compulsory, do any postgrads know if this is the case for Sheffield?

    After the Msc I would like to go on to do a phd either on neurodegenerative diseases or neurotech.

    Thank you for your time and advice

    Hello TreeFruit,

    I was wondering which program you chose, and how you're getting along in it this year?
