12 Free Master’s in Neuroscience/Neuro-Engineering in Germany

Updated on May 24, 2017

Neuroscientists study normal nervous system development and function, as well as disorders and diseases that cause abnormal nervous system development and function. Understanding how a healthy nervous system works to produce thought, emotion, and behavior and to regulate important body functions helps to shed light on problems that can lead to diseases or disorders of the nervous system.

Currently, almost all the states in Germany do not charge tuition fees even to non-EU students. International students can therefore take advantage of this opportunity to earn a free master's degree in Neuroscience/Neuro-Engineering, in English, from one of its tuition-free universities. International students get to study for free, learn a new language, and also have the opportunity to travel around Europe during the semester breaks.

12) University of Bonn---MSc in Neurosciences

The MSc Neurosciences programme aims towards an integrated understanding of modern neurosciences over the full spectrum of current research, ranging from molecules and physiology to morphology. A strong emphasis is placed on practical research experience in the laboratories of the participating departments and research groups.

11) Goethe University Frankfurt---Master of Science in Interdisciplinary Neuroscience

The programme will provide students with a broad overview of the most relevant fields of neuroscience, including basic neuroscience, clinical neuroscience, cognitive neuroscience and computational neuroscience. This also includes relevant practical skills.

10) Osnabrück University---Master of Science (MSc) in Cognitive Science

Studies in the Cognitive Science Master's programme cover multiple aspects of cognition, such as perception, attention, memory, learning, problem-solving, reasoning, emotions and language. We are concerned with questions related to how these cognitive abilities are realised in biological or in artificial systems and how such systems are organised.

9) University of Magdeburg---MSc Integrative Neuroscience

This research-oriented programme focuses on the neural basis of animal and human behaviour. The programme covers an exceptionally wide range of neuroscience areas (molecular, cellular, systems, behavioural, cognitive, theoretical), but consists of comparatively few courses that are correspondingly intensive (three to five hours per week and course). In addition, the programme imparts quantitative and computational skills, which are increasingly important in all areas of neuroscience.

8) Julius Maximilian University of Würzburg---Master of Translational Neuroscience

The programme MSc Translational Neuroscience involves the leading neuroscience expertise of the Medical Faculty at the University of Würzburg and includes other natural sciences such as psychology. The curriculum is a two-year, research-oriented, international study programme that is intended be continued with a PhD project at institutes of the Medical Faculty or the Graduate School of Life Sciences Würzburg or at other universities.

6) Humboldt University Berlin---Master Mind and Brain

In October 2013, the research-based Master's programme "Mind and Brain" became part of the Berlin School of Mind and Brain, a result of a successful re-application within the national Excellence Initiative. This English-language Master's programme incorporates the innovative research conducted by the Berlin School of Mind and Brain into an interdisciplinary teaching programme.

5) Ruhr University Bochum---Master Cognitive Science

The program of the master 'Cognitive Science' is interdisciplinary and international with a curriculum completely offered in English. Cognitive Science is a dynamic, interdisciplinary area of research. The driving questions within Cognitive Science focus on the theoretical understanding and empirical investigation of cognitive phenomena.

4) Berlin University of Technology---International Master's Programme Computational Neuroscience

Models of Neural Systems: the module provides the relevant, basic neurobiological knowledge and the relevant theoretical approaches as well as the findings resulting from these approaches. Students will learn to appropriately choose the theoretical methods for modelling neural systems and how to apply these methods while taking into account the neurobiological findings.

3) University of Göttingen---GGNB Neurosciences - International Max Planck Research School (MSc/PhD/MD-PhD)

The intensive, research-oriented programme includes the following topics: molecular neurophysiology and cellular neurophysiology, neuroanatomy, neurobiophysics, neuroendocrinology, neuropharmacology, developmental neurobiology, behavioural neurobiology, clinical and theoretical neuroscience, and bioinformatics.

You can find all the details about applying to the programme here.

2) Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München---Master's degree in Neuroscience

How does the brain work? Significant progress has been made in the field of cellular and molecular neuroscience and modern in vivo techniques have revolutionised non-invasive observation of brain activity even in humans. Today's challenges lie in understanding the brain as a complex functioning system and many problems remain to be solved.
