Study in Immunology is offered as an Honours area by the Discipline of Infectious Diseases and Immunology in the Sydney Medical School.


The Honours program in Immunology provides the opportunity for full-time research on a proposed project supervised by a staff member expert in that field. Experimental research, a seminar and a thesis constitute the major part of the program and of assessment. Guidance in research techniques is given in training programs covering experimental design, data analysis, written and oral communication and critical appraisal of the literature. In addition, a supplementary seminar programme keeps students informed and abreast of wider issues in immunology.

Usually Honours candidates will have achieved a Credit in Senior Immunology units of study and will also have successfully completed Senior study in Biochemistry, Biology, Cell Pathology, Microbiology, Physiology or Virology. Departmental permission is required for enrolment.
