Student Profile

This program is right for you if you study neuroscience, biology, psychology, or health science, and are considering a profession in the interdisciplinary field of neuroscience.

Through DIS, I have been exposed to facets of the neuroscience field that I never would have considered as career opportunities. Our courses are unique and widespread: topics from neuroplasticity to the networks of fear allow us to hear from professors with a diverse range of backgrounds and occupations. Coupled with academic visits and Program Study Tours in European cities where we interact with world-renowned experts in the field, this program has helped me consider my future in a whole new light.”
