Department of Cognitive Science
Higher Degree Research in Cognitive Science
The Department of Cognitive Science offers exceptional learning opportunities for students interested in pursuing higher degree research in the cognitive and brain sciences. Two exciting research training pathways are available – the Master of Research (MRes) and the PhD. MRes students will gain core knowledge in their specific research area as well as the broader fields of cognitive and brain science. In addition, students will gain intensive research experience while pursuing individual research projects under the supervision of a member of the Department. Research projects are designed to permit flexibility. The innovative combination of advanced disciplinary coursework and structured research training offered during the 2-year MRes program makes the MRes the ideal pathway into the PhD in Cognitive Science. PhD supervision is provided across a wide range of domains of cognitive science including memory, language, perception in action, and reading. The Department of Cognitive Science boasts world-class researchers and state-of-the-art facilities, and the PhD program provides unparalleled access to both.
