Course Summary

Our Allergy programmes were awarded World Allergy Organisation Centre of Excellence status for 2014-2019, the only centre of its kind in the world. Our course is designed to help healthcare professionals, including GPs, hospital-based doctors, nurses and dietitians, gain a greater understanding of allergic diseases and to be able to translate this knowledge into their everyday practice. We offer a step-on, step-off structure, allowing you to tailor our course to your needs. You can start on a PG Diploma and if you choose, continue to the MSc. Our interprofessional approach enables students from different disciplines and professions to interact and learn from each other, an essential facet of successful allergy management teams. We offer a high level of support for hospital-based and distance learning.
