The study of veterinary microbiology helps us to protect against and treat diseases in animals, from pets to livestock. Our MSc in Veterinary Microbiology is run in partnership with local, pioneering veterinary research institutes (Pirbright, the Animal and Plant Health Agency and the Veterinary Medicines Directorate).
You may be in a government position and needing to know more about disease surveillance and/or food safety. Or you may come from a veterinary background and be interested in learning more about animal health and the transmission of pathogen to humans (zoonoses).
With the rise of antibiotic resistant microbes and the emergence and re-emergence of infectious diseases, there’s never been a more important time to join our forward-thinking course and study this critical subject.
The MSc course in Microbiology and Immunology was set up to enhance the training of scientists studying the interactions between microbes and the immune system, and for those students wishing to enter a research career and gain high level skills in Microbiology and Immunology.
This course provides comprehensive knowledge and practical training in the spread of microorganisms (predominantly bacterial and viral pathogens), disease causation and diagnosis and treatment of pathogens significant to public health.
This programme is the only one of its kind in the UK. It is designed for high-calibre, veterinary graduates from clinical backgrounds who want to explore and benefit from veterinary research, perhaps with a view to pursuing a PhD or a career in research.
This course provides an understanding of the molecular basis of biological systems and focuses on applying this knowledge to improve human health and disease, food biosecurity and sustainable biotechnologies.
Food from aquatic systems is essential for much of the world’s population. However, with wild catches of seafood declining in many places, aquaculture is playing an increasing role as an alternative source of high-quality, nutritious food - and as an employer.
One Health recognises that health of people is connected to the health of animals and the environment and vice versa. That is why its approach in research is interdisciplinary and collaborates between physicians, veterinarians, epidemiologists, microbiologists and ecologists.
Develop a deep theoretical and practical understanding of virology in an era of emerging viral infections. Study at a university ranked 9th in the UK and among the top 50 in the world for medicine (QS World University Rankings 2018).
This programme provides advanced academic training in food safety and food control. It includes topics such as food control, hazard analysis and critical control point (HACCP) and food chain security.
It’s a great place for international student to get a world class education whilst still experiencing the relaxed, down-to-earth ‘kiwi’ lifestyle that this part of the country has to offer.
