The MSC in Neurobiology is based on 3 main curricular activities for a total of 120 CFU over two academic years (1 CFU is 25-30 hours student workload, including from individual reading to final examination):


Courses (78 CFU): 8 mandatory and 5 at your choice (all courses account for 6 CFU)
Internship and thesis (39 CFU) (link to Student Life/Thesis)
Other activities (3 CFU): 5 international seminars/year (link to Seminars)


Courses are distributed over two academic years and 4 semesters: the first semester starts beginning of October and ends mid January; the second semester starts beginning of March and ends mid June.
