Our part-time day release course is accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science, and it's designed for those already working in the field who aspire to become leaders in their profession. Our course is guaranteed to increase your scientific understanding of medical microbiology and develop your critical and analytical skills. **What you will study** By studying medical microbiology with us, you'll learn about the biological and pathogenic properties of microbes which are important to our health as well as those which can cause disease.
