When do I start my neurology rotation at King's?
The first neurology-related block, titled 'Cognitive, Movement and Senses' takes place in Stage 2 Year 3 of the GKT curriculum. Though after this there is no specific neurology placement, you are likely to encounter cases in your later rotations (e.g. neuro-trauma in Emergency Medicine and Critical Care in Stage 3 Year 4)
Which 3rd year project should I take? I feel like topics were not covered enough in depth to make an informed decision.
We are working on including previous 3rd year student experiences regarding 3rd year laboratory projects , so keep an eye on our website for more details coming very soon.
Which options are available to 3rd Year Neuroscience Bsc students?
All the information regarding module options for the Neuroscience/Msci can be found on the Programme Advising page on KEATS https://keats.kcl.ac.uk/course/view.php?id=51494

What laboratory work experience does KCL offer?
KCL offers paid summer studentships that are open to all undergraduate students at Kings via the Kings Undergraduate Research Fellowship (KURF). This experience allows you to conduct your own PAID research laboratory project under the supervision of leading KCL academics. Successful applicants for the Fellowships are also enrolled on the King’s Experience Research Award, which enables students to gain formal recognition for their role as Research Fellows. Successful completion of the Research Award will feature on students’ Higher Education Achievement Record (HEAR). Applications for 2020-21 will open in March 2021, so keep an eye on this page: https://keats.kcl.ac.uk/course/view.php?id=13571§ion=12 If you'd like to learn more about a successful applicant's KURF experience and what to expect from undertaking a summer research project at KCL, keep an eye on our blog where a post will be available very soon.
I enjoyed one of the topics covered in a particular lecture on one of my modules and I am interested in this topic for a summer project. How do I go about this?
It is important to keep in mind that it is tricky for researchers to take on summer students independently, without a scheme in place where a summer laboratory project is being advertised either by KCL or by a society such as the Biochemical Society. This is because funding and insurance are difficult to procure without a scheme already in place. That being said, let the professor know that you are interested inpursuing a project, and ask if they are willing to take you on as a summer student. They may already be offering a project via the Kings Undergraduate Research Fellowship (KURF) , or would be willing to apply with you via a society such as the Biochemical society to gain funding. If you are on the Neuroscience Bsc/Msci course, also consider approaching the relevant researcher regarding your topic of interest as a 3rd year laboratory project, funded as part of your degree!
