Programme of Neurophysics

Dear student,

We are working on solutions for hybrid education that will take place online and on campus. Therefore the instructional modes, number of exams, the form of the exams and/or assignments may change. You will be informed through Brightspace in case of changes. The course information in the Course guide provides an indication of what you can expect in the course.

In the case of not being able to attend one or more practical courses/lab days due to corona measures, the course coordinator will decide if the student is obligated to re-take the missed meeting and how this will take place.
The master specialisation Neurophysics comprises of:

A. Mandatory courses - Physics and Astronomy, Neurophysics 18 EC
B. Elective courses - Physics and Astronmoy 24 EC
C. Master Thesis Physics and Astronomy 60 EC
D. Professional Preparation 1 EC
E. Philosophy 3 EC
F. Free electives 14 EC

Note: In order to create a coherent programme that prepares you for a Master's thesis contact the coordinator:

Experimental Neurophysics: Prof Dr A.J. van Opstal
Computational/Theoretical Neurophysics: Prof Dr B. Kappen

A. Mandatory Programme (18 EC)

B. Elective courses (24 EC)

Elective courses should be chosen in consultation with the prospective supervisor or the coordinator of the master specialisation. Note that the selected electives should add up to a minimum total of 24 EC.

Depending on your field of interest, the following courses are highly recommended:

Experimental Neurophysics: ENP
Computational/Theoretical Neurophysics: TNP

All Neurophysics elective courses are found here. However, you are not restricted to this selection of Physics and Astronomy courses. Part of your elective course programme (9-15 EC) can take the form of a synergy track in Computational and Data Science.

The Educational tour can also be used as an elective course within your Master's.

C. Master Thesis Physics and Astronomy (60 EC)

D. Professional Preparation (1 EC)

E. Philosophy course (3 EC)

F. Free Electives (14 EC)

Free electives can be chosen from other master specialisations or programmes, not necessarily within Physics and Astronomy. You can also consider courses from the societal specialisations.
