Course summary

Overview

Designed by international experts working in the areas of Infection, Immunity and Inflammation. Studying on this full-time programme will enable you to maximise your exposure to the research expertise in the Division of Infection and Immunity and the Systems Immunity University Research Institute. The programme was designed by international experts working in the areas of Infection, Immunity and Inflammation Studying on this full-time programme will enable you to maximise your exposure to the research expertise in the Division of Infection and Immunity and the Systems Immunity University Research Institute. You will benefit from their enthusiasm and commitment to lead and deliver high-quality research-led teaching activities on this MSc programme. This MSc provides comprehensive coverage of immunity research giving you a holistic view of chronic disease progression, the control of infection and the mechanisms affecting our capacity to mount an effective immune response. This will enable you to evaluate the impact of research on the life-course of the immune system in health and disease and to explore the immune system in greater depth by learning how it can be manipulated to treat cancer, autoimmune and inflammatory diseases. Biotechniques are evolving fast, and new approaches that enable the generation and analysis of vast amounts of data are being applied to address immunological problems. Immunology research is now embracing the full range of ‘omics’ including genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, lipidomics and metabolomics. You will examine ‘omics’ approaches and use them to resolve Infection-, Immunity- and Inflammation-based research questions by learning the computational and statistical methods used by scientists to analyse and interpret data from the assays.

Learning and assessment

This MSc uses a blended learning approach that will use online e-learning software, voice over narrations in PowerPoints, live and recorded webinars to reinforce the seminars, lectures and tutorials delivered by faculty and external invited speakers. You will work in groups and you will also be expected to work independently. A learner-centered model is used intentionally to explore material in greater depth at journal clubs, using a problem-based approach. During group discussions you will be encouraged to share and articulate any content or resource that you’ve discovered independently to support your peers in their learning. Each taught module has built-in formative assessment check points to ensure that your learning is on track for the summative assessments in each module. The dissertation at MSc level largely consist of guided independent study and research. It makes use of the extensive learning and research facilities available to you at Cardiff University. A project supervisor will be allocated to support and advise you on researching and writing up your specific dissertation topic. Taught Modules will be assessed using diverse approaches that are dependent upon the learning outcomes for each module. These include written work (long documents, brief reports and a rapid review article), presentations (oral & poster). The research project assessment is based upon the final dissertation and the presentation of its major findings.
