Depending on project choice, please check Stud.IP and ask the supervisor.
Module can be taken multiple times, however, supervision of individual projects is limited to 45 ECTS for the same combination of student and supervisor (1 research module + Master thesis OR up to 3 research modules, including external research projects)
|Skills to be acquired in this module||
Students perform individual research projects to learn:
+ Neurosci. knowlg.
++ Expt. Methods
++ Independent research
++ Scient. Literature
+ Social skills
+ Interdiscipl. knowlg.
+ Data present./disc.
+ Scientific English
The Research Module is carried out under the guidance and supervision of a member of the Neuroscience faculty at the University of Oldenburg.
It comprises approximately 7 (minimum 5) weeks of experimental or theoretical work, individually or in small groups, and, usually, participation in a regular group seminar during that time.
Students can choose between many options of individual projects, offered by the different groups involved in the MSc Neuroscience study program.
Research questions, methods and approaches differ between individual projects
Please refer to the list of options in Stud.IP and contact potential supervisors directly.
The timing of projects is by individual arrangement with the supervisor. Many, but not all, project options can also be scheduled during semester breaks, and / or as part-time options (lasting more than 7 weeks).
Note that, for some options, priority for admission to the project is given to students who passed a background module offered by the supervisor
Participation in a poster presentation at the neuroscience career day (in March) is not mandatory but highly recommended.
