UC3M presents Spain's first Neuroscience degree at AULA 2024


The Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M) is presenting its new Neuroscience degree at AULA 2024, the International Student and Educational Offer Fair, held in Hall 3 of IFEMA as part of Education Week. This will be the first university degree in Spain to be taught in this discipline and will be part of UC3M's new Faculty of Health Sciences.

UC3M's Neuroscience degree will begin in September 2024 and will provide an education in subjects such as neuropharmacology, neurobiology, bioinformatics, computational psychiatry and neurolaw, among others, thus responding to the commitment to quality education and research in Madrid's public universities in order to advance in the field of healthcare and address the challenges of our society.

Neuroscience comprises all the basic, experimental and formal sciences that, from different points of view, study the human nervous system. The aim of the new degree is to develop innovative strategies and improve existing ones for the prevention, diagnosis, treatment, monitoring and rehabilitation of diseases in order to guarantee personal and social well-being in the most efficient way possible.

UC3M's Neuroscience degree will have a strong multidisciplinary focus. Sciences such as physics, chemistry, psychology, mathematics and medicine will be interlinked to generate theoretical, but also applied knowledge, albeit in activities different from direct clinical medical practice.

The degree will be taught entirely in English in order to facilitate European and non-European student mobility, promote international agreements and alliances and attract not only national but also international talent, both among students and teaching staff.

In terms of career opportunities, graduates of this degree will be prepared for jobs in the pharmaceutical, health or biomedical equipment sectors, research or diagnostic laboratories, or biotechnology companies, among others.

The recommended candidate profile is A Level Science, as it provides specific training in key areas for the study of neuroscience. This approach develops essential knowledge and skills, optimally preparing students for their university studies.
