Course content

The future of health is digital. We urgently need new technologies for understanding, preventing, diagnosing, and managing illnesses that affect millions of people, such as diabetes, depression and dementia. The digital health industry is expected to grow six times in size over the next five years, at a rate of nearly 30% a year. Driven by the risk of future pandemics and the health needs of ageing populations in countries worldwide, this growth is expected to continue for decades to come.

The demand for graduates in this area is therefore unprecedented. If you have a first degree in a health science, computer science, life science, mathematics or engineering subject, we want to help you develop as a leader in this area.

Our MSc in Digital Health provides you with the necessary technological expertise and understanding of the health landscape to forge a career in this innovative and vital field. You will learn about novel sensing technologies to detect and monitor diseases, artificial intelligence, epidemiology, statistics and more. You will also learn to evaluate the safety and efficacy of new products, assessing the ethical principles that guide the development of new health technologies, all alongside graduates from different disciplines. Finally, the Digital Health Project will provide you with a unique group experience to solve a real-world digital health challenge: from market research, to public involvement, data analysis to regulatory submission, you'll have the opportunity to exercise creativity and problem solving in your own disciplinary area. You will be equipped with the necessary skills to work in multidisciplinary health sectors.
