Infectious diseases are increasing in importance around the world as we see the rise in the incidence of antibiotic resistance and our MSc in Infection and Immunity is designed to provide an up-to-date advanced understanding of the interactions between bacterial, fungal and parasitic pathogens and their hosts.

Why Study Infection and Immunity with us?

You will receive training in the skills required in the reading and interpretation of the literature and translating that into evidencebased practice. We aim to develop your research and writing skills so that you will be in a position to contribute to the scientific literature in an effective manner.

The course culminates in the Research Dissertation, which will be assessed through your production of two articles in the style of published scientific work.

The content of the course is mapped to The Joint Royal Colleges of Physicians Training Board Speciality Training Curriculum for Immunology, and Speciality Training Curriculum for Infectious Diseases and Tropical Medicine.

If biomedical or clinical research is your interest, successful completion of the MSc will allow you to directly register onto PhD study and join our team of researchers at the Institute of Medicine.

What will I learn?

Our course investigates the different types of infection, our immune response to them and various complications. You will review current guidelines and their evidence base in the therapeutic management of infections, and explore potential new therapies. You will also study vaccination protocols and explore novel immunological approaches.

Seminars and tutorials will be held with various healthcare professionals and clinical researchers.

How will I be taught?

Our course consists of taught modules and a Research Dissertation.

We deliver taught modules as three-day intensive courses to facilitate attendance from students in employment. Weekly support sessions and journal club supplement learning – all held in our modern facilities in Bache Hall on the Countess of Chester Hospital Campus.

How will I be assessed?

You will be assessed via clinical reviews, laboratory reports, posters, oral presentations, or data manipulation exercises.
