Master's of Neurocognitive Psychology

Hi all! My name is Jen. I'm an American Ex-pat living in Germany who just finished up her degree in Biology. I've worked with international students for the last 5 years. I'm currently trying to make a little noise surrounding our new Master's of Neurocognitive Psychology at the University of Oldenburg. It is a two year research based international graduate programme which offers systematic coverage of the major fields in psychology as well as an in-depth training in cognitive neuroscience.

Here is our shiney new poster:

The programme takes 2 years to complete and is offered through the Department of Psychology. Grad students can choose from a variety of applied and/or research modules. The department's research spans topics such as multisensory integration, brain oscillations and behaviour, cortical plasticity, computational neuroscience and pharmaco-neuroimaging, to name a few. Different state-of-the-art neuroscience tools and psychology labs are available to gain hands-on experience in magnetic resonace imaging, mageneoencephalography, high-density electroencephalography, eye tracking, transcranial magnetic and electrical stimulation and phychophysics. Clinical experience is provided in several of our applied modules in collaboration with local hospitals and rehab centres.

Because we run on a winter/summer semester schedule, applications are due much later than in the UK or the States (deadline July 15th for the winter term which begins October 1st). Tuition and fees per semester are 769.50 Euros. You do not need to speak German in order to study this course. It's taught completely in English. Most students and faculty outside of the program speak English as well. Both the psych department and the International Student Office have experience working with students from all over the world, so there are plenty of resources available to foreign students.
