The programme comprises 18 months of formal teaching and research work, of which students will spend the first 4 months (September to December 2011) in Basel, Switzerland, attached to the Swiss TPH and the Biozentrum of the University of Basel, before moving to Singapore for the research work and their selected course modules. As the vacancies for this programme are limited to a maximum of 20, candidates will be admitted based on the selection criteria of the Admission Committee of the National University of Singapore and the Teaching Committee for Biology of the University of Basel.

Selected students will be offered a stipend which covers the 18 months of studies, including tuition fees, research and travel expenses. The number of stipends is limited, and students may opt for self-funding.

What will you learn?
Students will obtain a comprehensive insight into the basics of infectious diseases, as well as the strategies of vaccine designing and drug discovery. Lectures will complement a research project undertaken within leading laboratories at NUS and NITD.
