Educational Programs


Virology graduate programme in the School of Public Health ties together the fundamental concepts of biology, immunology, and public health issues. In addition to research, educational activities forms a crucial part of the department’s activities and is integrated at different stages of the curriculum for virology students.

The virology department has established learning objectives for both MSc and PhD students to not only develop a fundamental understanding of basic virology and techniques important in the application of basic biomedical research to diseases of public health interest but also to become an independent scholar capable of conducting independent research leading to the expansion of knowledge of virology and exploring important questions concerning viral pathogenesis and infection.

During programme, students learn to develop their advanced research and analytical skills to apply data for solving problems in virology.
