We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Immunology provide advanced study of how the immune system detects and responds to pathogens, including an analysis of humoral and cellular immunological mechanisms.
Popular specialisms include Infectious Disease, Inflammatory Disease and Immunotherapy. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Biology or Medicine.
Courses in this field train you for the application of immunology in a wide variety of contexts. You will examine topics such as host-pathogen interactions, parasitology, and vaccinology through practises in molecular biology, immunogenetics and genomics.
Practical training in experiment design, data collection and analysis, lab testing, and bioimaging is a key component. Academic consideration is also given to Immunology in relation to public and international health, as well as ethics and human rights.
Your experience will make you suitable for roles in the fields of clinical immunology, drug development, and pharmaceuticals, as well as scientific writing, charity work, consultancy and policy-making. If you would prefer a route in academia, then your Masters would provide excellent preparation for further study at PhD level.
