Course content

The MSc Allergy programme draws on our clinical, research and education strengths. Its multidisciplinary nature makes it suitable for GPs, hospital-based doctors, nurses, dietitians and scientists who are involved with adult and paediatric patients.

You will be brought up to date with current best practice, allowing you to improve your management of patients with allergies. You will also gain the skills to share your allergy knowledge with colleagues and patients.

Our flexible postgraduate course offers you the option of tailoring your learning to suit your needs. You can choose from studying single modules, PG Certificate, PG Diploma or the full MSc Allergy. We have full time and part time study options.

You will be based at one of the country’s leading teaching hospitals – University Hospital Southampton – and will get the opportunity to improve your skills in supporting all allergy patients more effectively; develop your scientific understanding, clinical knowledge, practical skills and critical thinking qualities; and improve your ability to disseminate your expertise.
