Neurobiology - MSc Study


 
Admission

Prerequisites for students who chose neurobiology and their interests is in biochemistry / molecular are: 
A candidate who wishes to perform the thesis in neurobiology within the Faculty, will define the area of interest (biochemical / molecular or system / behavior) and in accordance will registere as a graduate student in a department of the Faculty which specielizes in this field (neurobiology, zoology, biochemistry or one of the other departments in the Faculty). After the departmental committee approved the student’s acceptance the candidate will register as a student in the neurobiology program, within the same department.
 
Students wishing to study in the Neurobiology program will apply to the Msc acceptance committee. The Program Committee will design a complementary study plan in  accordance with the student’s previous training. The acceptance of the student to the program is conditioned upon the program committee. 
Candidate  from a different field of study will have to complete several courses according to the committee demands.
 
The student has to choose his supervisor according to his interest prior to his registration.
