Course summary

Overview

The MSc in Health Data Science programme provides specialist training in the area of Health Data Science, aiming to educate current and future health data scientists, at all career stages, including those in the public and private sectors. Training is grounded in the team science approach to addressing important health research questions, including theory alongside practical application, and introducing you to new forms of health data. Team science communication skills development will be an essential component of each module of the programme.

Developed by internationally excellent research groups in biostatistics, public health, and computer science, combined with a number of world-leading centres in strategic areas of health, the programme offers a rigorous curriculum with research-focused teaching, training, and development in health data science.

The programme will expose you to core health research, statistics and computer science modules, with the opportunity to obtain specialised knowledge along a statistics track, computer science track, or a combination.

By completing the first semester you qualify for the PG certificate. By completing the second, you qualify for the PG Diploma. Then, by completing your dissertation, you qualify for the MSc.

The programme is in a blended format using both online and campus based delivery. It is available on both a full-time and part-time basis.
