Hello!

I have an offer to study Neuroscience at UCL. According to the rankings it's one of the best universities in the UK, with one of the best Neuroscience programs. However, I've heard the teachers are not approachable and that they are good at research but not too good at actually teaching others? I'd like to hear some opinions from those who study Neuroscience at UCL. I'm really confused. My other option would be the University of Manchester.

As you have worked out rankings mean little. Which course is more interesting? Different people will have different reactions to the same lecturers so you can't necessarily go by what people have said. Have you visited?

Hiya, UCL pharmacology graduate here (my degree had ~75% overlap with many of those in the neuroscience programme, and we share a department). Some lecturers are more approachable than others, but by and large the quality of teaching is fantastic. I loved spending 4 years at UCL and genuinely enjoyed fostering working relationships with my professors. My masters year was spent working full time in a neuroscience lab and the experience was invaluable! There’s nowhere else quite like it - UCL houses most of the self-described research neuroscientists in the U.K. I miss it so much now I’ve left!
