The vast majority of our postgraduate courses are still open for 2021/22 entry, and there is no formal application deadline. However, please remember that at this time of year, it can take between four and six weeks for us to process your application. In addition to this, if you are an international student, you also need to allow time to apply for a visa, apply for accommodation and make travel arrangements. For this reason, we recommend that, where possible, you submit your application by 31 July 2021.

The course

Applied Neuroscience (MSc)

This course gives a unique insight into neuroscience in real world settings. You’ll study alongside our leading neuroscientists with contributions from external academics and professionals, and have access to the department’s excellent neuroscience facilities. You’ll learn to conduct applied neuroscience research projects and acquire practical, hands on experience for your future career.

From time to time, we make changes to our courses to improve the student and learning experience, and this is particularly the case as we continue to respond to the Covid-19 pandemic. If we make a significant change to your chosen course, we’ll let you know as soon as we can.

Home (UK) students tuition fee per year*: £

EU and International students tuition fee per year**: £

Other essential costs***: There are no single associated costs greater than £50 per item on this course.

How do I pay for it? Find out more about funding options, including loans, grants, scholarships and bursaries.

* and ** These tuition fees apply to students enrolled on a full-time basis. Students studying on the standard part-time course structure over two years are charged 50% of the full-time applicable fee for each study year.

All postgraduate fees are subject to inflationary increases. This means that the overall cost of studying the programme via part-time mode is slightly higher than studying it full-time in one year. Royal Holloway's policy is that any increases in fees will not exceed 5% for continuing students. For further information see tuition fees see our terms and conditions. Please note that for research programmes, we adopt the minimum fee level recommended by the UK Research Councils for the Home tuition fee. Each year, the fee level is adjusted in line with inflation (currently, the measure used is the Treasury GDP deflator). Fees displayed here are therefore subject to change and are usually confirmed in the spring of the year of entry. For more information on the Research Council Indicative Fee please see the RCUK website.

** For EU nationals starting a degree in 2021/22, the UK Government has recently confirmed that you will not be eligible to pay the same fees as UK students. This means you will be classified as an international student. At Royal Holloway, we wish to support those students affected by this change in status through this transition. For eligible EU students starting their course with us during the academic year 2021/22, we will award a fee reduction scholarship which brings your fee into line with the fee paid by UK students. This will apply for the duration of your course.

*** These estimated costs relate to studying this particular degree programme at Royal Holloway. Costs, such as accommodation, food, books and other learning materials and printing, have not been included.
