Course summary

Overview

Our Immunology MSc will enable you to gain an understanding of the structure and functioning of the immune system at the cell, molecular and genetic level, and how it relates to health and disease. We will give you the vital skills needed to pursue doctoral-level research or to enhance your career prospects in other areas of healthcare and related industries.

Course detail

This course has many distinctive features, such as our emphasis on group study and problem- directed learning. There is also a strong focus on developing the core skills you will need for further career progression, such as the ability to understand and interpret research data, presentational skills and experimental design skills. This course is ideal if you are a scientist from either a clinical or non-clinical background, and you want to improve your employment prospects by extending your expertise in the field of modern immunology, or if you want to acquire relevant research training for a PhD.

Teaching and assessment

For most of your modules we will give you approximately 30 hours of teaching through a mixture of lectures, tutorials and presentations. We will expect you to undertake 270 hours of self-directed learning for each module. For your Research Project module, you will have contact with a research project supervisor, and we will expect you undertake 600 hours of work, which includes time spent in the laboratory. You will be assessed through a combination of coursework and exams for two of your modules, but the Research Skills and Immune disorders and infection modules are assessed entirely through coursework and your Research Project will be assessed through a dissertation.

Career prospects

Many of our MSc Immunology graduates go on to positions in either a university or research institute as PhD students or graduate research assistants. Others have gone into careers in hospital laboratories as clinical scientists or positions in the pharmaceutical industry.
