Where to study neuroscience masters with a philosophy degree

    • Thread Starter


    I am doing a philosophy degree at the moment and i'm predicted a first (but might only get a high 2:1). Id like to go on to study nueroscience i dont want to and cant afford UCL, so where should i go that will accept me without a science degree?

    Also does anyone know if keele university is good for neuroscience?

    Neuroscience is certainly a change from philosophy? Are you talking about another undergraduate degree? And what is your A level background - it would be unlikely that you'd be able to study this without at least a couple of science A levels, I would have thought.

    Are you Sam Harris?

    I think it's not unlikely you'll be accepted because some masters are conversion degrees - precisely tailored to people like you. Otherwise, you need to demonstrate relevant work experience.


    Take a look at the postgrad courses and their entry requirements. If it's not clear, contact the admissions office.
