About

This Applied Infectious Disease Epidemiology programme offered at the University College London (UCL) builds on UCL’s research strengths in core epidemiological skills applied to the field of infectious diseases. You will also focus on the use of new technologies (omics) for analysing pathogens and their applications in tackling global public health challenges. 

Overview

You will be equipped for a career at the intersection of epidemiology and biological science, with a strong emphasis on clinical and public health medicine.

You will learn principles of basic statistics and epidemiology, transmission dynamics, and infection pathogenesis. 

You will also study infectious diseases in high-, middle-, and low-income settings, using examples in the classroom drawn from a range of conditions, including STIs, HIV, TB, influenza and other airborne viruses, and emerging, vaccine-preventable, vertically transmitted, and vector-borne diseases.

Careers

The Applied Infectious Disease Epidemiology programme from the University College London (UCL) has two pathways of optional modules that map on to the careers market.

  • Pathway 1 is aimed at students considering a career as an infectious disease epidemiologist requiring strong quantitative and data analysis skills.
  • Pathway 2 is designed for those intending on a career in international global health and policy-related work where their focus will be on infectious disease control.

Employability

A major focus in this programme will be on the practical application of knowledge and skills to infection and population health problems. 

We will also encourage students to critically appraise and intellectually challenge the evidence in infection and population health, and to work in multidisciplinary teams to seek solutions to hypothetical and real-world public health problems. These are all vital transferrable skills in the job market.
