      Good question 🙂

      You can approach neuroscience from lots of different directions, like computer science, physics, chemistry etc, but because neuroscience usually involves working with cells or tissues, studying biology and then neurobiology would be the best route.

      I went to University Of Warwick and studied Biochemistry, where I did a neurobiology module (in my 2nd year) and an Integrative Neuroscience module (in my 3rd year), then I did a Masters degree in Neuroscience.

      So personally I’d say any bioscience/biology-related degree (Biology, Biochemistry, Biomedical) at a good biology university would be best. The top 15 UK unis for bioscience are:

      1. Cambridge
      2. Oxford
      3. Birmingham
      4. St Andrews
      5. York
      6. Ulster
      7. Surrey
      8. UCL
      9. Exeter
      10. Bath
      11. Sussex
      12. Manchester
      13. Warwick
      14. Lancaster
      15. Edinburgh

      Hope that helps 😀
