Confusion - Canada colleges

Some other good colleges for neuroscience would be -

Dalhousie University

McGill University

University of Alberta

Brock University

You can definitely go for Biological Sciences at Brock university. Along with its Business department, I’ve heard good reviews about the Life Sciences department as well. The department is reputed. For MSc, they offer specializations as well in -

  • Cell and Molecular Biology
  • Ecology and Evolution
  • Neurobiology and Physiology
  • Plant Sciences and Oenology Viticulture

It is a research-oriented program of 2 years. So you’d need to contact a supervisor beforehand for admission.

What other admission requirements are there for the course?

Admission requirements

  1. Complete application
  2. A 4-year bachelor’s degree with at least 75% in the last two years
  3. Transcripts
  4. 3 references
  5. A Statement of Research Interest - not more than 2 pages. You will have to mention the supervisor you contacted in the essay.
  6. Contact a supervisor. This is because the course is research-based.

Also, I should mention that this course leads to a Ph.D. as well. If you want to get into the Ph.D. program you can convert your masters into a postdoctoral degree. Additionally, if you have an exceptional academic record, you can be directly admitted to the postdoctoral program after your bachelor’s degree.
After year 1, you can give a pre-doctoral exam to transfer to Ph.D. Obviously, this also requires 80% in all your subjects. Do talk to your supervisor about this route as well if you are interested in research.
