Program description

Biology of Infectious Disease BSc (Full-time)

Why study this course?

The exciting Biology of Infectious Disease BSc (Hons) undergraduate degree will introduce you to the subject of infectious disease, developing the skills you need to become a talented biologist capable of analysing, processing and innovating in this increasingly important field. Special highlights of the course include work-related learning, the chance to create your own unique third year project and access to our state-of-the-art Science Centre.

The science of infectious diseases is a modern, cutting-edge topic. Our Biology of Infectious Disease BSc will provide you with a broad knowledge base and deep understanding of the scientific basis of health and disease including the causes and public health impacts of infectious disease, host responses and diagnostic and therapeutic technologies.

You’ll have 12 hours of contact time per week with our research-active academic staff in the form of lectures, tutorials, seminars, workshops and practicals. The teaching team and specially invited guest lecturers will build your competencies in a range of specialist areas including immunology and virology, pathology and toxicology. This will be integrated with both experimental and theoretical work in computing skills and ethics.

In addition to the University's standard entry requirements, you should:

  • A minimum of grades CCC in three A levels, with C in Biology and C in Chemistry (or a minimum of 96 UCAS points from an equivalent Level 3 qualification, eg BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma, Advanced Diploma, Progression Diploma or Access to HE Diploma with 60 credits—you should take Level 3 qualifications in Biology and Chemistry in addition to your Advanced Diploma)
  • English language and mathematics GCSEs at grade C/grade 4 or above (or equivalent)
