This modular programme aims to produce postgraduate students with a sound knowledge of both practical and theoretical aspects of the specialist area of Immunology, with emphasis on its clinical applications. It aims to provide the necessary skills and knowledge to undertake individual and collaborative research in this field.
This programme has been designed for students wishing to make a career in immunology. As in other areas of biology, the cutting edge of research is primarily focussed at the molecular level using the recently developed, and constantly improving, techniques in molecular biology, genomics and proteomics. Knowledge in this area is expanding rapidly leading to a better understanding of how the immune system responds to pathogens and how it can be manipulated for therapeutic purposes in procedures such as transplantation and vaccination. In this programme you will study these areas in some depth. The focus of the programme is not simply on the state of current knowledge but also the methodology used in obtaining that knowledge, making use of recent research papers to inform class discussion.
In addition to taught modules in the field you will also be trained in research processes, culminating in an individual research project which will give you the opportunity to demonstrate your individual skills and abilities.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.
For entry to this programme, students are required to have a second class undergraduate honours degree from a UK university in a relevant subject e.g. physiology, microbiology, biochemistry or an equivalent qualification and/or experience. All students admitted to the University are required to have GCSE at grade C in Maths and English (or equivalent).
For overseas students there is a requirement for an IELTS score of 6.0 or higher (or equivalent). Applicants whose qualifications do not conform to these criteria may be admitted to the programme at the admission tutors discretion. This will normally involve an interview.
No work experience is required.
Together with the ISIC Association and British Council IELTS we offer you the chance to receive up to £10,000 to expand your horizon and study abroad. We want to ultimately encourage you to study abroad in order to experience and explore new countries, cultures and languages.
With over 23,000 students from 120 countries worldwide, UEL is one of the UK’s most diverse and fastest growing universities.
