Why study Infection and Immunity at UCL?

Our aim is to link fundamental laboratory research (embracing immunology, virology, microbiology and autoimmunity) with the specialised clinical interests of the hospitals associated with UCL. This link provides a unique research environment within the UK. Our staff are committed to providing the highest standard of teaching and our cutting-edge research is used to inform and shape the modules you will take.

What you will gain from study at UCL

You will be taught by experienced and enthusiastic staff and benefit from provision of clear module objectives and web-based supporting materials. Effective and supportive mentoring is provided through module tutors and a Teaching Administrator who acts as a central information and referral point.

Teaching and assessment

The division is committed to maintaining a diversity of assessment methods. For visiting students, assessment will usually be by coursework (essays, data handling exercises, presentations). However, some modules may also have an unseen examination.
