Microbiology is the study of the millions of micro organisms with which we share our world, dealing with those that cause disease and making use of those of benefit to us. It's a spellbinding subject as anyone who has gazed down a microscope into the world of swarming bacteria can testify. Identifying dangerous microbes, stopping their spread and treating their effects is vital and often life saving work.

You'll study four core modules, common to all four postgraduate biomedical science courses: advanced bioanalytical techniques, biomedical ethics and law, laboratory leadership and management, and experimental design and statistics. Alongside these you'll study four specialist microbiology modules: infectious agents, human infectious disease, control of infectious disease, and laboratory diagnosis of infectious diseases and safety.

The core modules will cover how to design and carry out experiments and statistical analyses; literature searching, referencing and citation; techniques for analysing samples and molecules, including electrophoresis, gas and liquid chromatography and immunochemical techniques; aspects of managing a laboratory, from people management to business plans and budgets; safety, regulations and quality management; and ethical and legal issues, such as those surrounding research on animals and humans, assisted reproduction and genetics.

The specialist modules will cover all types of infectious agents, bacteria, fungi, protozoa, viruses and prions how they replicate and are transmitted, identifying and classifying them; public health, and the control, treatment, prevention and eradication of human infectious diseases; the human immune system and immunisation and healthcare associated infections.

You'll then work on a dissertation, which will involve planning and carrying out an independent and original research project in a laboratory or clinical setting. You'll work under the guidance of a supervisor, who you'll meet with for at least an hour a week, and can base your project at your workplace if you're in relevant employment. You'll carry out a literature review and draw up a research proposal, design and conduct your experiments, collect and analyse your data, and present your findings in a 15,000 word report and a presentation to your tutors and fellow students. The dissertation is accompanied by an experimental design and statistics module to hone your research skills.

The course will also improve your numeracy, IT, research, communication, presentation, management, teamwork, problem solving and analytical skills. If you don't want to or aren't able to complete the full MSc, you can also obtain a PG Cert or PG Dip, studying four modules for a PG Cert and eight for a PG Dip, omitting the dissertation.
