Hello everyone,

I am a bit unclear about the right masters/pathway to go through in order to become a higher education professor.

For example, I am an M.B.B.ch graduate, and interested in teaching immunology .

So would I need to do a masters, say in biomedical science/immunology and the a PhD in order to be considered for teaching roles?
Or there are other pathways I'm unfamiliar with ?

Thanks in advance!

Unfortunately, there isn't a universal qualification for process to go through to becoming a University Professor. It's quite individual to the person and the institution you'd like to work in.

I suggest you make contact with professors in the field that you aspire to and consider their personal journeys. You can also take a look at the job descriptions for the Universities you'd like to work with. They will state a description of the role as well as a person spec.

Wishing you all the best.
