BSc in Immunology & Infection

Early training of life scientists in Immunology and Infection is vital to maintain the innovative drive and structured progress in this exciting field. This BSc course offers committed Life Science students a special opportunity to train in Immunology and Infection at an early stage in their career. The course is taught together with medical students to foster dialogue and discussion between biomedical and clinical researchers early on. We hope this will facilitate later synergy in the unraveling of novel fundamental mechanisms, the understanding disease processes and ultimately successful “translational” applications to benefit health and patient care.This BSc course offers committed Life Science students an excellent starting opportunity for entry into an exciting field of biomedical research at an early stage in their career.

If you fulfill the requirements below you may apply for transfer on to the course. (See also UCL Change Course).

The 3rd year modules are taken together with the medical students (intercalated BSc in Immunology, Infection & Cell Pathology) who have completed two years of their degree programme.
