Course summary

This course focuses on how the body defends itself against disease. It helps us understand processes of viral, bacterial or parasitic infection and how the immune system is sometimes tricked into attacking its own tissue, leading to diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes or allergy. This course will provide you with comprehensive postgraduate life sciences training. You'll receive dedicated training in a broad range of practical laboratory skills. This is complemented by classes that develop your transferable skills in:

  • statistics
  • presentations
  • career development
  • ethics
  • science writing skills
  • your ability to design experiments and analyse sophisticated datasets
Our taught classes capture the excitement of cutting-edge research fields. You'll be taught by active researchers or practising clinical professionals.
