Study Neuroscience Oxford Summer Courses

Neuroscience

Do you lose sleep pondering the mysteries of your mind? The human brain is the most sophisticated machine available to us and, with the help of continued technological advancement, we are slowly unravelling its workings though the field of Neuroscience. During this course, you will come to understand the structure and the potential of our brains; first focusing on the neurons which constitute the building blocks of this complex machine before moving on to the more complex functions which dictate how we learn and live on a day to day basis.

Courses

At Oxford Summer Courses we are committed to the best academic experiences and to the personalised learning that has made Oxford a global academic force. So while all of our tutors are at the top of their fields depending on your age you'll be taught in slightly different ways. We use small group seminars to ensure that you get greater attention than you could elsewhere. On top of that if you're aged 16-17 or 18-24 then you'll receive weekly tutorials from leading academics mirroring the teaching method that makes Oxford a world-renowned university.

Neuroscience

The Neuroscience summer course for 18-24 year olds is taught through four seminars and one supervision study per week. During the weekly supervision study, students will produce an essay which puts what is learned in seminars into action, and expert staff will give you comprehensive feedback on your arguments and writing style. This course will provide you with a foundational understanding of the brain. You will discuss both its fundamental structure along with more specific functions such as the nervous system, behaviour, circuits and systems, sensory functions, cognition and development from both a logical and emotional perspective. For each topic, students and their tutors will explore not only healthy function but also how dysfunctions can lead to neurological illness. Through a combination of seminars and supervisions, you will have the chance to tackle those issues most important to you and come away with exciting new knowledge and questions.
