Course content

We have now seen the devastating effect that a global pandemic can have on our modern world. There is now a greater need for scientists who are able to understand both the transmission, aetiology and control of viruses, such as COVID-19, as well as be able to understand how the immune system responds to viruses.

Why study MSc Biomedical Science (Infection and Immunity) at Middlesex University?

This master's course combines the two disciplines of infection and immunity and equips you with the skills necessary to work in the NHS or in the pharmaceutical industries, for example in the development of vaccines. You'll be better enabled to compete for positions in academic research in the areas of infection and immunity, an area of research that is currently being expanded in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

This degree is unique in that it couples Biomedical Science with Infection and Immunity, a combination which is not currently offered anywhere else in London, and will be of particular interest to applicants from a Biomedical Science background, who wish to work in the NHS, pharmaceutical industries or enter academic research. This is a great opportunity to better understand the complex and dynamic interplay between infection and immunity.

Due to the use of external lecturers recruited to the teach on the programme from the NHS, industry and academia, you will have a chance to make useful links with these potential employers.
