INTRODUCTION

The Parasitology programme will offer a broad-based education in modern Parasitology, incorporating a very large element of module choice.

  • Train in a department that has one of the greatest concentrations of wildlife parasitology research activity in the country or worldwide

Assessment

All modules are assessed 100% by coursework except for the optional Medical Biotechnology module, which is assessed by examinations. You will receive feedback on all practice and formal assessments.

Graduates from this course have entered employment as research assistants or research laboratory technicians in parasitology, pharmaceuticals, drug design and pesticide research.
