Course content

Our part-time online MSc Global Health course has been developed in collaboration with the International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC).

Aimed at both those new to the humanitarian sector and professionals who want to update their skills, our course offers a practical means of study and an inclusive approach which mirrors the reality of interventions within a humanitarian context. All of the credits you earn will be transferable to other academic institutions.

You will explore issues related to the worldwide improvement of health, the reduction of disparities, and protection against global threats that disregard national borders.

The course is unique in bringing together the study of emergency medicine, disaster management, community health, anthropology and sociology of health and illness in an online format.

You will have access to leading multidisciplinary academics and practitioners. For example, we have a close working relationship with the charity UK-Med, which aims to improve the training and accountability of medical teams to sudden onset disasters and complex emergencies.

Fees and funding

We have a number of bursaries available to support the first year of study (PGCert) for September 2019 entry. The deadline for applications if Friday 26th July 2019. Visit the HCRI website for more information.
