Medical Microbiology (Euromasters) at University of Surrey
On this programme, you will study theoretical aspects of medical microbiology, encompassing the biological and pathogenic properties of microbes, their role in health and disease, the reactions of the host to infection, and the scientific basis for the detection, control and anti-microbial treatment of infectious disease.
Accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science, the two-year course will increase your scientific understanding of medical microbiology and develop your management and research skills to drive forward your career.
You will spend four days per week pursuing a research project in internationally recognised laboratories and receive a full taught MSc programme from leading experts in the field of medical microbiology and its associated disciplines. 
This extensive research experience makes Surrey graduates highly employable.
