The University of Otago is the only New Zealand university to offer an undergraduate degree in Neuroscience.

Neuroscientists apply a wide range of scientific disciplines, including AnatomyBiochemistryComputer SciencePharmacologyPhysiologyPsychology, and Zoology. As an interdisciplinary programme, Neuroscience is taught by staff from many departments. Each teaches a separate “neuro” component, with the result being a coherent and integrated subject. Due to the interdisciplinary nature of the Neuroscience programme, teaching styles vary between papers. Many first- and second-year papers are taught through a combination of lectures and laboratory sessions, while third-year papers will have group projects and discussions. Assessments are varied and include written examinations and laboratory reports.
