For Undergraduate Students

Undergraduate Students

Undergraduates on some Natural Science routes or those studying Medicine or Veterinary Medicine will receive teaching in infectious disease at various points during their courses. More information on the syllabuses for these courses can be found on the Undergraduate Admissions pages.

The Graduate School of Life Sciences

Cambridge has excellent opportunities for those wishing to embark on a career in infectious disease research. The University provides a stimulating and supportive environment for Graduate Students. There is a carefully monitored research supervision system and a wealth of seminars and other research-oriented teaching available to students. In addition the Collegiate system provides excellent pastoral and social benefits.

The Graduate School of Life Sciences holds details of Masters and PhD courses in the sciences, including a comprehensive database of PhD projects.

Find a supervisor

Potential supervisors for Masters & PhD projects can be identified by searching our directory and the database on The Graduate School of Life Sciences website. In addition, the University runs a prestigious and highly competitive Wellcome Trust 4-year PhD programme in Infection & Immunity. Students spend the first year undertaking lab rotations and a core lecture course in Infection and Immunity, before making an informed choice of PhD project for years 2–4.
