Course Summary

Epidemiology is a multidisciplinary field and we have a number of world-renowned professionals, including epidemiologists, statisticians, clinicians, and public health consultants, who work as a team to deliver extremely high standards of teaching and research. Our work has involved both developed and developing populations and several of our students are from overseas. Some conduct studies within their own country and/or similar studies in the UK. There is a wide range of expertise in the division including knowledge of the conduct and analyses of large community based studies, case-control studies, cohorts, randomized controlled trials, and meta-analysis as well as use of large datasets from general practices and other sources. Our Careers and Employability Service offers a range of services including advice sessions, employer events, recruitment fairs and skills workshops – and once you have graduated, you will have access to the service for life.
