This course is designed to address the current national and international demands to increase the number of healthcare professionals and related personnel trained in allergy.
Postgraduate Certificate in Allergy
The PG Cert in Allergy offers a sound theoretical background to the principles of the mechanisms and management of allergic disease and robust practical programme in diagnosis and treatment. By the end of the PG Cert programme, students will have enhanced their understanding of the immunological mechanisms involved in the generation and manifestation of allergic disease, their skills in diagnosis and interpretation of test results and their management of disease applying the most up to date and appropriate methods. They will also have developed skills in the use of computing applied to healthcare.
MSc in Allergy
Students who continue to the MSc will build on previous learning to develop a systematic understanding of the knowledge relating to the mechanisms and management of more complex allergic disorders in specific areas of practice.
They will also benefit from a comprehensive academic training, an introduction to appropriate research methods and practice and the opportunity for intellectual development within a stimulating yet supportive environment. Through completion of an MSc thesis, students will gain experience in research methodology and techniques, design of a research project, data analysis and presentation, literature searching, critical appraisal and presentation of work for publication and at scientific and clinical meetings. In addition, they will study in depth an allergy research project within their working environment.
