The Interdisciplinary Summer School on Neuroimaging (ISSN) course from Aarhus University is aimed at introducing talented and enthusiastic university students to basic aspects of preclinical and clinical brain imaging. Modern imaging technologies such as positron emission tomography (PET) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) will be presented and discussed because they hold a great potential to expand our current knowledge in many life science areas.

About

Embracing the interdisciplinary nature of the field, The Interdisciplinary Summer School on Neuroimaging (ISSN) course from Aarhus University is targeted at graduate university students from psychological, medical and biological sciences as well as the natural sciences (such as chemistry, medicinal chemistry, physics, math, statistics and computer science).

The Interdisciplinary Summer School on Neuroimaging aims to provide a solid foundation in state-of-the-art functional neuroimaging methods. The course will cover central aspects of PET and MRI, including experimental design, data acquisition, and computerized data analysis.

The program will highlight the most current research in order to illustrate how neuroimaging can be used to test hypotheses and to provide evidence-based answers to issues related to diverse aspects of brain function in both health and disease. Students will be encouraged to interact closely with teachers, both in lectures and in practical laboratory exercises, so that they become better prepared to carry out research projects in neuroimaging and to evaluate published findings.

The course is open for both bachelor and master students.

Learning outcomes and competences:

At the end of the course the student should be able to:

  • Choose the most suitable imaging modality for studying a giving research question.

  • Explore the cause of common psychological and neurological disturbances and design experiments to test hypothesis based on this knowledge.

  • Critically review scientific publications dealing with neuroscience.

  • Apply acquired knowledge on brain imaging and brain function to design experiments on topics of individual interest.

English Language Requirements

You only need to take one of these language tests:

  • Minimum required score: 6.5

    The IELTS – or the International English Language Test System – tests your English-language abilities (writing, listening, speaking, and reading) on a scale of 1.00–9.00. The minimum IELTS score requirement refers to which Overall Band Score you received, which is your combined average score. Read more about IELTS.

    Take IELTS test
  • Minimum required score: 560

    The TOEFL – or Test OF English as a Foreign Language – offers a paper-based test (PBT). The final, overall PBT score ranges between 310 and 677, and is based on an average taken from the three test components (listening, structure, and reading). The writing part of this test is scored separately on a scale of 0-6. Read more about TOEFL (PBT).

  • Minimum required score: 83

    The TOEFL – or Test Of English as a Foreign Language – offers an internet-based test (iBT). The final, overall iBT score ranges between 0 and 120, and includes a scaled average from the four components (reading, listening, speaking, and writing). Read more about TOEFL (iBT).

Academic Requirements

International Freemovers (EU and non-EU applicants who attend a university that does not have a bilateral partnership agreement with Aarhus University and EU and non-EU applicants who are not currently attending a University) applying for AU Summer University courses must apply by using the online application system before March 15th.

Along with your application, you must hand in the required documentation for your university studies. Please note that EU/EØS citizens are obliged to pay participation fees whereas tuition fees only apply to free movers from countries outside the EU/EEA/Switzerland

    Requirements
  • You are expected to fulfill the same requirements that apply to regular students. Freemovers, therefore, need to provide documentation for their subject levels in applicable subjects. Mathematics if applying for courses offered by the School of Business and Social Science. Mathematics, chemistry, and physics if applying for courses offered by Faculty of Science and Technology.
  • If you are applying for admission to AU Summer University courses at Bachelor level, you must upload both your secondary school leaving certificate and transcript of courses taken in your bachelor's degree so far.
  • If you are applying for admission to AU Summer University courses at Master level, you must hold a relevant Bachelor's degree (or as a minimum 180 ECTS in your study programme).

Tuition Fee Per Module

  • EUR 1301 International
  • EUR 204 EU/EEA
