Introduction


An MSc course is different from other courses that you may have taken up to now. Attending lectures is only a part of what you will be expected to do. To start with, many modules assume a substantial basic knowledge of the subject; it is your responsibility to ensure that you are adequately prepared for each module, using the recommended preliminary reading, before the module starts. Secondly, for topics that are well covered by textbooks, the lecturers are not expected to repeat that material; you are therefore expected to supplement the lectures by relevant reading. In addition, many lecturers will provide lists of additional reading material, including scientific reviews and research papers. Finally, in most modules, you will be set course work which forms part of the assessment. The programme therefore represents a great deal of hard work. The more effort you put in, the more you will get out of it. Our expectation is that you will put in many hours of additional study per week.

This is a prestigious, well-established programme, intended for those with a genuine interest in Medical Microbiology who wish to develop their understanding and appreciation of this fascinating field, including the rapid advances being made in the underlying science. It is not designed for those who merely want to update their knowledge of existing diagnostic procedures; our aim is to provide a scientific and intellectual platform that will enable you to take advantage of future developments, and the capacity to undertake and direct research projects. As well as discussing recent scientific developments, we aim to develop your critical and analytical skills so that you can identify problems, formulate hypotheses, design experiments, analyse and interpret data, and draw conclusions.

Most of you already have practical microbiological experience, and are currently working in a microbiology lab. This should be regarded as an important part of your course. Not only will this on-going training and experience provide a valuable background to your studies, but you should try to apply to your lab work the knowledge, concepts, and critical attitudes developed during your studies. Think about the purpose of your procedures, how they work, and what alternatives might be available. Ask questions! If there are opportunities available, attend research seminars. When microbiological topics are in the news, find out about them. Developing your scientific curiosity is also an important part of your studies.

This handbook, as well as providing information about the content and assessment of the modules, also answers many of the everyday questions about the way the programme runs and the facilities that are available.
