Course content

Our courses in Health Policy offer you the chance to learn about important aspects of health policy from leading international academics and practitioners.

Through intensive blocks of teaching coupled with personal study, you will acquire a detailed theoretical and practical understanding of health policy. We will introduce you to both quantitative and qualitative research techniques that will enable you to carry out original studies.

You will also develop the ability to critique existing and emerging health policy on the basis of evidence and knowledge.

In addition, you will gain a comparative perspective that enables you to consider the challenges affecting different regions and countries, as well as alternative potential responses to them. You will also have the opportunity to network with international peers.

The courses are aimed at those already working in the health sector. You will acquire a detailed theoretical and practical understanding of health policy, with a view to improving the quality of such policy, both within the UK and internationally.
