Congratulations to our MSc in Clinical and Therapeutic Neuroscience, Class of 2021/22 for successfully completing the course.

Jonathan Cattral, Kristina Funk, Muyang Lin and Georgina Miller

The MSc in Clinical and Therapeutic Neuroscience was first launched in October 2019 and is run jointly with the Departments of Psychiatry and Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences, together with essential contributions from allied departments and institutions in Oxford.

Overall, the academic standard of the cohort was extremely high, and after much deliberation, the Exam Board judged that the following candidates deserved special recognition. All prize winners received an Amazon gift voucher. Six students from this class are staying in Oxford either to study for a DPhil or take up a Research Assistant post. We wish the whole class the very best of luck with their future endeavours.
