University of Edinburgh undergraduate courses in Infectious Diseases

Details of undergraduate courses at the University of Edinburgh that have a focus on infectious diseases in animals and humans. The University currently plans to deliver a mix of in-person and digital teaching for the academic year starting in September 2021. We are monitoring government guidance on Covid-19 prevention measures and we will adjust our 2021-22 plans in response to any relevant changes. Based on current information we expect some physical distancing measures are very likely to still apply when the academic year starts in September 2021.
