Course content

Designed for healthcare professionals and students with an interest in Bioethics, this MSc Programme will provide you with the opportunity to explore and understand ethical problems of medicine in a global context.

With an increasingly mobile population across the world, healthcare professionals, more than ever, need to manage a broader range of health care problems including pandemics, which we’ve all seen with the emergence and spread of COVID-19.

This programme has been designed to address these challenges and will provide you with a greater understanding of the complexities of socio-cultural factors across different countries, enabling you to develop your skills in complex decision making and ethical reasoning. Options exist to complete modules in Public Health and Policy and to complete a work-based placement.
