Hi there:

I’ve been offered to study an M.Sc in Cognitive Neuroscience at Swansea University; as well as an M.Sc in molecular neuroscience at Bristol Unversity

As I attend to study a Ph.D in neuroscience, I was wondering which of the above two neuroscience Master’s would prepare me for it?

I guess it depends on what aspect of neuroscience you want to focus on... these seem like two very different courses.

Hi there
My tutor basically told me that the decision lays with myself and that both will adequately prepare me for Ph.D study within neuroscience.
The problem I’ve got is which one! My logic tells me that molecular neuroscience is, possibly more heavily laden with science than cognitive though, am unsure about it.

More biochemistry, one would have thought. But presumably you've covered some basic aspects of these things in your course already - which did you find more interesting/enjoyable?

Presumably you've Googled it and found this: https://www.quora.com/What-are-the-d...e-neuroscience
