Course summary

Our MSc Microbiology is a research-based degree, providing you with essential training in scientific research methodology and data analysis, as well as specific scientific techniques appropriate to the research microbiologist.

The programme draws from the Department of Biological Sciences' research strengths and expertise in cell biology of infectious diseases, host-parasite relationships and drug discovery across a wide range of infectious pathogens/bacteriology and parasitology. You will undertake a research project in the laboratories of internationally recognised researchers.
