Neuroscience

Advice on how to plan your exchange within the Bachelor of Science

Optimal exchange dates: Year 2

Planning your exchange: Given the Neuroscience major has no specified pre-requisites, students can technically plan an exchange at any point in their second year and take a combination of Science Electives/Breadth subjects. However, it is important to note that there are several “recommended” Level 2 subjects, including:

It is highly recommended that students complete some of these subjects either prior to or during their exchange. The Faculty of Science has mapped a number of these recommended subjects at partner institutions.

Mapped subjects for the Neuroscience major include:
