Medical Microbiology MSc


Course Description

Our course is ideal if you are a graduate looking to develop your skills as a microbiologist.

The MSc and postgraduate diploma in Medical Microbiology are intensive full-time or part-time postgraduate taught courses encompassing the medical and molecular aspects of bacteriology, virology, mycology and immunity to infection.

Our microbiology course is unique because you will spend much of your time actually in the laboratory, learning how to be a microbiologist.

We aim to give you a significant level of theoretical and practical understanding of the subject, which will be important if you want to follow a career in clinical sciences or academic and industrial research.

The course runs in parallel with the MSc in Medical Virology and the MSc in Medical Mycology.

The MSc Medical Microbiology course has its roots in a prestigious qualification developed in the early 1920s by Professor WWC Topley.

As such, it can be considered to be the oldest taught postgraduate microbiology qualification in the country, and probably in the world.
