Graduate Training Centre of Neuroscience

International Max Planck Research School


The Graduate Training Centre (GTC) operates international neuroscience degree programs which offer a comprehensive theoretical and practical training in a wide range of neuroscience topics under the guidance of leading neuroscientists. In addition to three Master's programs the GTC runs a doctoral program with advanced neuroscience and supplementary skills training. The GTC hosts the International Max Planck Research School (IMPRS) of the Max-Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics, creating a lively and inspiring community for Neuroscience PhD students in Tübingen.

Currently, 85 masters and some 250 doctoral students are enrolled and are being offered more than 65 courses in neurosciences and state-of-the-art methods. Teaching is entirely in English.

Neuroscience in Tübingen is interdisciplinary with highly networked scientists at various university and non-university institutions and research centres, who together create the TübingenNeuroCampus. Students of the GTC can take full advantage of the lively research community and the state of the art facilities for theoretical and practical training.


The first talk in the TNC’s virtual Neurocolloquium in the summer semester of 2021 will take place next Thursday, April 22, at 17:00.
