MASTER COURSES

Please note that PhD candidates often receive less credits for participation in MSc courses, especially for “introductory courses” (e.g. 3 ECTS for MSc students = 2 ECTS for PhD candidates). Contact the LNDS coordinator in case of questions.

EPFL Msc courses

The EPFL-EDNE coursebook recommends a couple of MSc courses to Neuroscience PhD students. In addition, you might also find MSc courses of your interest in other EPFL programs. Please ask the LNDS coordinator for advice if needed. Course registration: Please apply through the EPFL Students’ Desk . Students must provide an “attestation” (proof) of studies from their university, valid for the semester during which they will audit an EPFL course.
