I am writing to let you know about our new Masterís course in Cognitive Science ( University of Trento, Italy).
The course comprises of two years. It is taught entirely in English by our international faculty. Students can choose between two tracks: 1. Cognitive neuroscience track (http://international.unitn.it/mcs/cns-cognitive-neuroscience) and 2. Language and multi-modal interaction track (http://international.unitn.it/mcs/lmi-language-and-multimodal-interaction).
The first years aims to build the studentís methodological/theoretical bases, the second provides the opportunity for hands-on research experience. This is quite unique, as most commonly students are not granted an opportunity to have access to fMRI, EEG, MEG, eye trackers at the masterís level, but have to wait to be Ph.D. candidates.
Our goal is to form a future generation of bright and young researchers, who can use this course as a springboard towards an academic career in neuroscience with a distinct advantage, and who will be used to an international and English-speaking environment by the time they start their Ph.D.
The application is a simple on-line procedure, which can be accessed via http://old.disi.unitn.it/edu/appform/login.xml
Please feel free to this distribute this letter widely to interested parties and students who may want to apply. At this time, we enrol European students only (deadline: 31 July 2009), as the deadline for non-EU candidates has already passed.

Do not hesitate to contact me for any queries you may have.
