The Importance of Personal Development for Trainee Neuroscientists

Neuroscience is without a doubt one of the most exciting careers you can enjoy. While it requires a lot of hard work and dedication, the rewards are high. At times, it’s even been compared to rocket science for its complexity and fascinating theories. However, a degree in a neuroscience subject is certainly not out of reach for those who want it.
The University of Bolton’s MSc Social Neuroscience course nurtures the existing talent of psychology graduates, with a supportive and friendly learning environment to help them reach their potential. Our tutors will work with you to make sure you enjoy both professional and personal development throughout out the programme.

Why a personal development plan matters
As one of the most progressive fields of science, it’s important to hire people with the right skills. Ensuring personal growth for neuroscientists is vital for the future of neuroscience advancement. Furthermore, the entire concept of personal development is actually backed by neuroscientific research.

By helping students develop as individuals, we can provide them with direction and purpose in their work. This leads to self-awareness and self-improvement, both of which are vital for career progression in this exciting discipline.

Our master’s programme is also extremely relatable, as it studies brain function in relation to the social world. Our tutors will help you navigate a range of theories and research techniques while ensuring data can be understood in real-life settings.

There’s also a diverse range of neuroscientist career paths to pursue with this degree, while also giving you a direct a pathway into PhD studies. To begin your journey into this fascinating field, enrol with us in January 2021.
Not only do we rank in the Top 5 in the UK for Teaching Quality (The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2020), but we’ve also been featured in the Top 50 UK Universities in The Guardian University League Tables 2021.
