Course summary

The University of Glasgow has the largest grouping of human and veterinary virologists in the UK. Fundamental research on viruses and viral diseases lies at the core of our mission to translate knowledge to benefit the health of society. Our research programmes span a wide breadth of topics across whole populations to the subcellular level.

Key defining features of our expertise include:

  • Viral ecology and epidemiology
  • In vivo pathogenesis
  • Diagnostics
  • Molecular virology
  • Viral immunology
  • Vaccines
  • Viral oncology
  • Structural virology
  • Virus genomics and bioinformatics

These programmes are supported by an extensive and state-of-the-art infrastructure and will help students understand how viruses replicate, disseminate, and sometimes cause disease, enabling students to develop a career as a virologist.

CAREER PROSPECTS

About half of our MSc students enter a research career, mainly by undertaking further postgraduate research studies towards a PhD, or by working in research laboratories in clinical or academic settings, including national government laboratories.

Other students go on to work in the pharmaceutical, diagnostic or biotechnological industries.

Many graduates from this programme also work in life sciences companies and in organisations providing support to the food and farming industries.
