Study neuroscience to start unravelling the mysteries of the human brain. We offer neurology and neuroscience courses to help you gain a deeper understanding of the brain and nervous system. Discover how they work together to form a complex relationship that controls everything we do, feel, and think.

With a neuroscience major, you’ll learn how this critical field links biology, medical physics, and physiology with psychophysiology and neuroimaging. 

We are the only university in the country that provides access to state-of-the-art MRI and MEG machines for our research students. Find out more about our neuroimaging facility.

Once you complete your neuroscience degree, you’ll graduate with a deep understanding of the theory as well as gain the  practical experience needed to succeed in this exciting field.

  • Magnetoencephalography (MEG) is a safe, non-invasive human brain imaging technique. The MEG scanner measures the very small magnetic fields produced by the active brain using external sensors configured as a hemispherical grid that covers the head.

    FACILITIES AND EQUIPMENT

    Access Swinburne's neuroimaging facility

    Situated in the Advanced Technologies Centre, Swinburne researchers have access to magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and magnetoencephalography (MEG) machines among other state-of-the-art neuroimaging equipment and capabilities.

The Swinburne Advantage

An undergraduate degree must be about more than just knowledge – it’s also job readiness, professional experience and access to further opportunities. 

We partner with leading Australian and global organisations to offer students authentic workplace experiences. Our degrees can include placements, internships, industry-linked projects, study tours and more. This is your chance to work on real-life projects, solve day-to-day challenges in your field and gain the professional skills that put knowledge into practice. You’ll build invaluable skills and confidence, knowing you have what it takes to land a job by graduation or even before.
