The University of Oxford MSc in Paediatric Infectious Diseases is a one-year part-time course, offered as an extension to the Postgraduate Diploma in Paediatric Infectious Diseases. It is for those who wish to broaden their knowledge about paediatric infection and develop research skills in the subspecialty.


The Paediatric Infectious Diseases MSc at the University of Oxford is intended to assess your capacity to formulate research questions, select, design and manage a research project. You will complete a research project of between eight and fourteen weeks and write a dissertation. The research can be carried out in Oxford or locally, making the programme suitable for overseas as well as UK residents.

While there is no formal teaching programme for the MSc year, you may attend any of the regular series of University lectures and seminars in relevant disciplines, particularly those run by the Department of Paediatrics.


The allocation of graduate supervision for this course is the responsibility of the Department for Continuing Education and/or the Department of Paediatrics and it is not always possible to accommodate the preferences of incoming graduate students to work with a particular member of staff. Under exceptional circumstances a supervisor may be found outside the Department for Continuing Education and/or the Department of Paediatrics.

You will receive support and guidance from your dedicated Oxford supervisor during the preparation of your dissertation. If you are completing your research project outside of Oxford you will also be required to find a local  supervisor to be approved by the Course Director. It is your responsibility to agree the frequency of meetings with your supervisor(s).


The course will be assessed by a dissertation of not more than 15,000 words, which will be based upon your research project.
