We run a comprehensive training programme, which includes courses in presentation skills, information technology and data analysis. A wide range of modern techniques can be learnt, including gene sequencing, real-time PCR, monoclonal antibody production, RNA analysis, immunoassays, protein chemistry, gas chromatography, mass spectrometry and electron microscopy.

MSc

We run a one-year taught course in Molecular Parasitology and Vector Biology. This course is taught jointly with the University of Salford and our MSc students come from all around the world. MSc places are not automatically funded. See course‌ webpage for further details. A number of Keele International Student Scholarships for a part-fee reduction are available to students from some countries. Information about  postgraduate study at Keele is available online.

A one-year research-training course is also available, the MSc in Scientific Research Training (with International Placement).  See course‌ webpage for further details.  This includes scientific and generic training based at Keele University, followed by research training with a European research partner.  A six to seven month research project is undertaken at the host European research partner institute.  The training is funded for EU graduate students by the Erasmus work placement scheme and a range of disciplines is offered.
