About

Years one and two in the Virology and Immunology programme from the University of Bristol provide a broad background in biomedical science as well as information about viruses and the diseases they cause.

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

You will study the immune system and how it controls infection. You will also learn about autoimmune diseases that can occur if the immune system attacks the body's own tissues rather than an infectious agent.

In your final year you will review the main viral diseases of humankind in terms of their natural history, biology, molecular biology, immunology, pathogenesis and epidemiology. These include HIV, hepatitis B and C, papilloma, influenza, measles and coronaviruses, among others.

You will learn about cutting-edge issues in virology and immunology, including emerging viruses such as the SARS-CoV-2, Marburg and Ebola viruses.

Outcome

You will also learn about the problems associated with the production of vaccines. You will normally work on a research project in either virology or immunology.

The four-year BSc Virology and Immunology programme from the University of Bristol is available by transfer after securing a placement during the second year.
