Courses in Neuroscience

PhD courses within the field of neuroscience

All PhD courses run by SUND, UCPH are listed in the course catalogue prior to the course taking place. There is no list of past courses, nor one of what may come, so please stay updated with the course catalogue. Upcoming courses will be announced by email and on the NeuroGrad website, if NeuroGrad is made aware of a given course being offered.
