Course Overview

Receive broad training for a career in biomedical research specialising in infectious disease epidemiology on this Master's course.

You'll explore how epidemiological analysis and mathematical modelling can inform public health decisions and provide inference on infectious disease transmission.

It also provides expert training to prepare you for a career in public health in a number of key areas of biomedical research.

These include infectious disease epidemiology, mathematical modelling and statistics, genetics and evolution, and computational methods.

You'll complete two five-month research projects and build transferable skills through grant writing, technical workshops, and journal clubs.

You have the option of choosing our general biomedical research stream, or one of eight specialisms. All of our biomedical research streams have the same course structure and each stream has its own tailored set of projects alongside a core programme of lectures, seminars and practical classes.

You should consider which stream is right for you according to your career aims and background. If an offer of admission is made, it will correspond to a specific stream. Switching streams is not possible once you have commenced your studies.
