Course content

This programme is an ideal introduction to international health for students with limited experience in the sector. It has a strong emphasis on research methods training - an essential grounding if you intend to work in international health policy, systems or programmes, or to study at PhD level.

The International Health MSc equips you with the skills to help achieve international development goals and reduce the burden of diseases borne by people in low- and middle-income countries. You’ll develop your understanding of international health issues, systems and programmes and policies. You’ll learn to analyse factors that cause inequalities in health status and resources and access to health information and services.

You will be able to work with, and research, diverse populations, geo-political environments and health systems.

You’ll also benefit from the international learning environment with fellow-professionals from a range of countries and areas of expertise.
