      The MSc Infection Control online course has been designed for nurses and other health professionals who have an infection control role in their workplace but is open to anyone with an interest in this area. Delivered as an online course, this course gives you the flexibility to study whilst you continue to work full-time. It also allows you to interact with other infection control specialists spread throughout the UK and internationally.

      The demand for Infection Control courses has increased in recent years due to multi resistant organisms and contagious illness outbreaks such as MRSA, swine flu and Ebola highlighting the need for more effective infection control. The fundamental underpinning of the MSc is that prevention is better than the cure and it is this mentality that will hopefully make outbreaks a thing of the past.

      Preventing and controlling the spread of infection is one of the key priorities for hospital staff, environmental health officers and healthcare professionals not only in the UK but throughout the world.
