About this course

These courses are designed for students with a wide range of background skills who require a detailed understanding of allergic disease, and who come into frequent contact with potential allergy sufferers.

Allergy is an increasing global health problem, and there is an urgent need both UK and worldwide for training in clinical allergy for all levels of the medical profession who diagnose and manage patients with allergic conditions.

Our Allergy courses have been designed for students with a wide range of background skills who require a detailed understanding of allergic disease and who come into frequent contact with potential allergy sufferers, such as hospital doctors, paediatricians, GPs, nurses, dieticians, nutritionists, scientists and health visitors.

These qualifications will be of great value to those holding, or wishing to apply for, specialist posts in secondary care in areas of medicine such as respiratory medicine, dermatology and paediatrics, where allergic mechanisms may be responsible for the underlying pathogenesis of disease entities.

Our courses are structured around a modular teaching week and supported by extensive interactive online learning resources, enabling students from around the world to take part.

The dynamic nature of the course will enable you to receive up-to-the-minute information on new research and clinical practice parameters, and has been recognised for its innovative teaching style.

Course Modules

All students enrol on the PG Certificate in Allergy in the first instance. This is also the first year of the MSc course. 

Students successfully completing all elements of Year 1 may choose to leave the programme with the PG Cert qualification, or waive this degree and proceed to the full MSc, which can be completed in a further one or two years.

Students not wishing to progress to the MSc can still study the Year 2 clinical modules as short courses with Continuing Professional Development accreditation. These short courses are also available to external students who have not registered for the PG Cert/MSc programmes.

Year 1 (PG Cert):  You attend St. Mary’s Hospital Medical School for three five-day (Monday-Friday) blocks as follows:

October – The Scientific Basis of Allergy
January – The Diagnosis and Treatment of Allergic Disease
April – The Cutting Edge of Allergy
You also complete extensive additional studies through online learning resources. This schedule enables you to fit the course in with your professional commitments and to study in your own time as your personal situation permits.

Assessments:  Module 1 assessment is an examination that takes place on the first day of Module 2 teaching week. The written assignments for Modules 2 and 3 each comprise a 2,500-word assignment which is submitted online.

Years 2 and 3:  In the second year you choose four out of six optional two-day teaching modules to attend at St. Mary's Hospital (these are organised so that two modules are run in the same week, to help minimise travel) and submit an assignment on each module. 

You choose your preferred modules from the following topics:

  • Allergic Gastrointestinal Disease module (November)
  • Food Hypersensitivity module (November)
  • Asthma and Allergic Airways Disease module (March)
  • Allergic Rhinitis and Hay Fever module (March)
  • Allergic Skin Disease module (June)
  • Paediatric Allergy module (June)

MSc students will complete a research project and write up a dissertation; this can either be submitted in Year 2, or in Year 3 for those wishing to spread the academic workload.

Modules shown are for the current academic year, and are subject to change depending on your year of entry.
