One Health (Infectious Diseases)

The course aims to recognise the relationship between health and disease at the human, animal and environment interfaces and has become an important focus in both medical and veterinary science. It promotes a "whole of society" treatment of health hazards and a systemic change of perspective in the management of risk. The MSc may be completed full-time in one year or part time over two to three years, and consists of eight taught modules and a research project. The Diploma is shorter (eight modules with no research project component) and may be completed in two terms.
