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. Browse our courses to find detailed course information, application dates, entry requirements, fees, subjects, ATAR calculator and more.
