Neuroscience and Mental Health Careers: The Importance of Self-Improvement

Careers in neuroscience can be demanding yet highly rewarding, and the University of Bolton’s MSc Social Neuroscience course is designed to help you get the most out of your work. For students who dream of finding success with neuroscience and mental health careers, our programme will give you the tools to reach your full potential.

By focusing on your individual growth and development, we can help you enjoy continued self-improvement throughout your Postgraduate studies and training. Here are just a handful of reasons why we prioritise personal development for our students:

It provides you with focus and direction
Our course leaders will spend time getting to know you, and your goals, and will tailor the programme to support your career dreams. By treating you as an individual and encouraging self-improvement, they can nurture your talent, ignite your passions, and give you the direction you need to grow.

We are proud to know our students by name, and not their student number, and it’s our student-first approach that puts us at No.1 for Student Satisfaction for three years running.*

Self-improvement prepares you for the workplace
Students at Bolton University enjoy personal growth and development, not only honing their technical skills and neuroscientific knowledge, but also transferrable skills for any workplace setting. As well as strong critical thinking and decision-making skills, you will also need excellent communication and interpersonal skills.

Many graduates go onto working in roles where they are required to be a part of a team, so our course leaders will also work with you to develop your soft skills.

You’ll get to explore a range of career paths
Students can pursue a number of careers with a neuroscience master’s, and by focusing on your self-improvement you can widen your prospects. This gives you more options when you graduate, boosting both your employability and increased earning power.

Our dedicated Employability Team will also be on hand to support your career ambitions throughout your studies.

If you want a leading Greater Manchester university with a supportive and friendly environment, look no further than the University of Bolton. We rank in the Top 5 in the UK for Teaching Quality* and in the Top 50 UK Universities^, so there’s nowhere better to enjoy Postgraduate study.
