Module may serve as preparation for a Master's thesis.
The Research Module is carried out under the guidance and supervision of a member of the Neuroscience faculty at the University of Oldenburg (see list of examiners). It comprises approximately 7 (minimum 5) weeks of experimental or theoretical work, individually or in small groups, and a regular seminar for training, reporting and feedback advice 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 the Stud.IP workshop on science communication (https://elearning.uni-oldenburg.de/dispatch.php/course/overview?cid=6fc0dbbfa53d7b3f5e3680f52ac7d0f7) and a poster presentation at the biology & neuroscience student poster symposium is not mandatory but highly recommended.
