Course Summary

The MSc in Immunology & Immunotherapy will foster the development of your practical and analytical research skills and enhance your employability and career prospects.

This MSc in Immunology & Immunotherapy will lead you through a wide ranging curriculum illustrating the relevance of immunology to the maintenance of health and the development of the latest immunotherapies for diseases such as cancer. It includes courses on basic and advanced immunology and immunotherapy, genes and immunity, biologic therapies, applied statistics, bioinformatics and host-pathogen interactions in infection. The programme will provide you with:

  • An understanding of the general principles of immunology
  • Experience and understanding of current and future immunotherapies in cancer and autoimmune disease
  • An ability to apply knowledge in academic and health contexts
  • Opportunities to learn from world renowned researchers

The MSc is ideal for students and scientists who want to improve their career prospects, fill skills gaps and further their hands-on immunology research experience in an era of rapidly increasing immunotherapeutic options.

The MSc Immunology and Immunotherapy Programme will provide you with the academic, analytical and practical research skills to assist you in many careers.

Many of our graduates choose to continue in research careers and begin PhDs or become research scientists (research assistants or technicians). Our scientists have obtained posts in Universities, industry, biotechnology and hospital diagnostic and pathology laboratories.

More generally, immunologists can use their training in education, working in schools, colleges of further education and in Universities. Further opportunities are available to apply immunology and immunotherapy training in scientific publishing, patent offices working on biological patents, in science outreach and contributing to the public understanding of health issues.
