Really simple question.

Going into the final year of my undergraduate degree now and would really like to study something different (more scientific) for my masters. Would going from Education to Cog Neuroscience be possible?

Although they’re not really interlinked I do feel like there could be some level of relevance between the subjects. I have studied a module in first year which was psychological/biological and have studied relevant optional modules in 2nd and 3rd year too.

What do you guys think my chances would be?

I had a quick look at some unis offering Masters in Cognitive Neuroscience and they required a UG degree in psychology:
York Uni need a UG degree in Psychology, Neuroscience or Biology.
UEA - Psychology or a relevant discipline in the Sciences or Social Sciences.
Swansea - 2.2 degree in Psychology, or a related discipline. But I guess I am telling you something you have already researched.

I did find an Educational Neuroscience masters at Birbeck Uni in London. You would have to enrol for the certificate first because you dont have a psychology degree. If you pass that, you can continue to gain the masters. Good luck
