Accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS).
There may be opportunities to acquire valuable European experience by working or conducting research abroad during your degree or shortly afterwards. It is possible to do this in the summer period with an Erasmus+ grant working on your dissertation or as a recent graduate. In order to qualify your Erasmus+ traineeship must be a minimum of two months.
Most of our lecture modules are offered as stand-alone short courses and are accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Sciences for the purposes of continuing professional development (CPD).
You may take up to three modules as stand-alone courses before registering retrospectively for the MSc and counting the accumulated credits towards your degree.
The fee structure for short courses is different to that for registered students and details may be obtained upon enquiry to the programme administrator. Also contact the programme administrator for information regarding the timing of each module.
MSc Medical Microbiology (EuroMasters) graduates are working in senior research positions in industry, academia or the public sector in the UK and around the world. Others have gone on to apply the extensive research experience obtained during the programme to study for a PhD.
Many part-time students already working in the public or private sector receive a promotion as a result of their qualification, having significantly improved their practice during the course.
