Course content

The aim of the MSc Healthcare Facilities is to generate an integrated perspective of all those components that constitute systemic, sustainable, and successful healthcare facilities. These components will also include: a strong emphasis on the value of real estate and place-making; an understanding of all elements necessary to enable significant environments for healthcare; an holistic perspective on Healthcare Facilities as a social provision.

The MSc Healthcare Facilities is the only multidisciplinary programme of its type available in the UK.

This MSc course will provide you with the opportunity to visit healthcare facilities, learn from experts, and interact alongside other experienced students to gain insights into the planning, designing, delivery and managing healthcare facilities.

You will build a unique network as you learn amongst your international peers in London\'s Global University.

The MSc Healthcare Facilities combines both more generally applicable modules on buildings and real estate with those modules specifically focussed on the area of healthcare provision.

The result is a unique programme that is multidisciplinary in terms of both applicant appeal and professional relevance, covering many stages of decision-making, and stakeholder relevance for healthcare facilities.
