University of Manchester

Our long-running MSc Medical Microbiology course is ideal if you are a graduate looking to develop your skills as a microbiologist.

The course is unique because you will spend much of your time in the laboratory, learning how to be a microbiologist. You will cover the medical and molecular aspects of microbiology and immunity to infection.

We aim to give you a significant level of theoretical and practical understanding of the subject, which will be important if you want to follow a career in the diagnosis and study of infectious diseases.

Since its origins in the 1920s, the course has been taken by many UK and international medical microbiology consultants, clinical or biomedical scientists, along with those who have progressed into academic or industrial research.

During the course you will have the opportunity to specialise in your preferred discipline (bacteriology, virology, mycology, parasitology) whilst maintaining an understanding of integrated microbiology.
