Microbiology is a quite niche area to be interested in. Lucky for you there are a ton of universities in different countries that you can target. Most of the technical universities focus a great deal on scientific and medical courses nowadays. Increase in technology and the global pandemic has made it even more relevant.

If you are seeking a good MSc in Microbiology program, I would not suggest you keep a limited mindset. Because unlike other subjects, Microbiology is famous in all top countries. This allows you to browse from hundreds of best universities. Now I understand that listing all of them here is not possible, so I have picked the absolute best ones from different locations.


  1. University of Edinburgh
  2. University of Glasgow
  3. University of Liverpool
  4. University of California - San Diego
  5. University of California - San Francisco
  6. Cornell University
  7. McGill University
  8. University of Alberta

Because healthcare is the most successful in the UK, I would like you to aim for UK universities first. The top three names are from the UK only. University of Edinburgh, Glasgow and Liverpool are your best overall options (budget friendly) for a MSc. in Microbiology. They are widely popular and have dedicated medical departments for such courses.

The other three options are from the USA. UC San Diego, San Francisco and Cornell are few of the best universities there for MSc. in Microbiology. However, if you are more interested in Canada, McGill and University of Alberta are your best options. Canada is currently #1 abroad destination for international students and a degree from there is definitely worth it.

How do you like these options? They are the most suitable ones from each country that you can target for Microbiology programs.
