This course focuses on the pathogenic potential of the organisms that cause disease in man. Students will also cover aspects of the biochemistry, physiology and genetics of microorganisms. Students will spend their first year learning fundamental concepts before specialising in microbiology topics in their second and final year. In Year 4, students will undertake a major research project in one of the University's more than 200 research labs to achieve their undergraduate master's award.
