The M-BIC graduate school, offers PhD students the opportunity to follow high-level courses on the different research areas and activities at the M-BIC (and the CN department at FPN). A primary motivation is to offer education that will stimulate interest and provide a solid foundation in related research areas as well helping new PhD student to quickly get up to speed within their own field of research and facilitate their work.

The courses offered within the school are designed following a 2-year course cycle, which, participation in the school activities (e.g. courses, mentoring program, progress reports) will become the basis of a M-BIC diploma. The course offering comprises of currently 14 courses that will be run in a two-year rotation.   

For students of the department of Cognitive Neuroscience at FPN the graduate school is also an organization that aims at providing mentoring as well as help in managing progress during the PhD. All new PhD students who join FPN-CN, are automatically enrolled into the M-BIC Graduate School. Next to following formal lecture courses and workshops, the participation in the Graduate School involves active engagement in the activities of the school and the M-BIC.
