“The great thing about this course is that it gives you full access to a range of imaging techniques. Being in an environment where ground-breaking research is being carried out is important to me as the field of neuroimaging is evolving so quickly. The CUBRIC team are leaders in their field but are so approachable if I ever have any questions.”

– Catherine, MSc student
