Summary

This programme draws upon the School’s long tradition in the study of clinical and epidemiological aspects of infectious and tropical diseases. It provides a broad understanding of infectious diseases through its core modules in biology, biostatistics, epidemiology and the control of infectious diseases, together with the subsequent opportunity for specialised study in areas of infectious diseases.

The programme will develop your academic and practical insight into the biology of infective agents and their interaction with the host. You will also be encouraged to develop a range of transferable and subject-specific expertise which will enable you to develop rational strategies for the control of infectious diseases.
