Course summary

The Infection and Immunity MSc provides an advanced understanding of the interactions between bacterial, viral and parasitic pathogens and their hosts.

Course overview

Infectious diseases are a key aspect of world health that often get overlooked. However, with the rise in incidence of antibiotic resistance and the increasing threat of emerging pathogens, infectious diseases are now taking their place at the forefront of public health. On this course you will explore the ability of microorganisms to cause disease even in the presence of our complex immune systems. As well as pathogenic mechanisms, you will also focus on current practices and cutting-edge developments in medical interventions to combat, control, and ultimately cure, infectious disease.

Assessment

You will be assessed via coursework assignments which may include case studies, literature reviews, laboratory reports, posters or oral presentations.

Job prospects

If biomedical or clinical research is your interest, upon successful completion of the MSc you may wish to continue with your education by studying for a PhD. Alternatively, you could study for medicine, physician associate studies or a PGCE. With the skills you learn in a biomedical-based MSc such as this, you could also go into a biomedical or pharmaceutical industry position, or related fields, such as medical writing or communications.
