Course content

The MSc in Health and Wellbeing is designed for people who are currently working, or wishing to work in a role which involves promoting others' health and wellbeing, either in specific settings, for specific health issues or at policy and framework level. The course aims to develop students' ability to critically analyse and interpret contemporary health and wellbeing issues, to formulate and evaluate appropriate responses, and to bring in national and international perspectives.

Using current research, students will apply their learning to their practical work context to contribute towards the development of their workplace practice. The course will also be particularly useful for people who are involved in working with the Health and Wellbeing Boards across the country, and for people whose roles are working alongside Public Health England.
This course is not suitable for international students due to the blended learning model and visa restrictions.
