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 host the only single-site neuroimaging facility that offers magnetoencephalography (MEG) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for 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.

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. 

The Neuroscience major within the Bachelor of Health Science is endorsed by the Association of Neurophysiology Technologists of Australia (ANTA).

ANTA is a national, professional association established to meet the needs of individuals employed as neurophysiological scientists and technologists in hospitals and private practice across Australia.
