Medical Virology

The programme aims to result in a significant level of theoretical and practical understanding, which will be important for those wishing to follow a career in clinical sciences or academic or industrial research. In the era of AIDS, avian and swine Influenza, and other emerging viral infections, the importance of medical virology as a co-discipline with medical microbiology is increasingly recognised. The programmes encompass the medical and molecular aspects of virology, bacteriology and mycology as well as immunity to infection and epidemiology. The current issues and concepts in medical virology will be explored and students will acquire the academic and practical skills necessary to make independent, informed judgements in relation to these issues. A unique feature of the Manchester microbiology programmes is the focus on practical, laboratory based teaching; our students spend time in the laboratory, learning how to be virologists.

Entry requirements

An Honours degree (minimum 2.1), or overseas equivalent, is required for direct entry to the programme. Non-standard applicants for the programme will be considered on an individual basis, but may be required to enrol initially on the diploma. The programme is suitable for graduates in: Microbiology; virology; medical laboratory sciences; medicine; veterinary medicine; dentistry; pharmacy; other biology degrees with an element of microbiology.
