    Course Summary

    This is one of a very few 4 year programs available in the UK which offers such a strong focus on immunology. In fact, once you’ve absorbed the ‘core curriculum’ in years 1 and 2, the focus will be on immunology exclusively.

    The University of Glasgow’s Immunology BSc begins with giving you an introduction to biology generally, and then lets you select form a wide range of elective modules as well as a required class list which deals with various aspects of immunology in greater depth. 

    You may also elect to take a year in research placement, either in an academic or industry context. That makes this a 5 year program resulting in an MSc degree rather than BSc.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.

    Course Outline

    This course is delivered over 4 or 5 years for most students.

    Year 1:

    Your core curriculum will focus initially on ensuring that you have a complete scientific background and understand the principles of biology generally.

    Year 2:

    In year 2, you will have a different focus for each term.

    Term one will see you delve deeper into biology and its most important principles.

    Term two shifts to focus on one or more specialised aspects of biology that interest you or are closely tied to your intended career path. These specialties include (but are not limited to) Infection Biology, Human Biology, Biomolecular Sciences, or Animal Biology.

    Years 3 and 4 (Honours modules):

    At this point, your studies will focus on immunology alone. However that is still a wide field. You will learn more about data analysis, statistics and molecular biology in an immunological context. You will become familiar with the latest techniques in the field during extensive lab-based sessions, and you will prepare an extensive dissertation.

    Optional Placement Year (MSc option)

    You may opt for a placement year between years 3 and 4. This will upgrade your degree to an MSc, and give you crucial real-world experience.

    Learning & Teaching

    The University of Glasgow’s Immunology program relies on a selection of the latest research-based learning and teaching methods. These include lecture classes, smaller tutorials, group work, and a great deal of cutting-edge laboratory experience. You will also engage in quite a bit of individual reading and study.

    Career Possiblities

    The University of Glasgow’s Immunology BSc program will prepare you to pursue a Masters or PhD degree in Immunology or a closely related field. Many other students opt to take working roles in dentistry, medicine or the veterinary sciences. You might find your path in the pharmaceutical or biotech industries, at a research institute or even in teaching or journalism.
