Course summary

Programme aims

The MSc Health Policy will develop your understanding of, and critical engagement with, key challenges in health policy.

Both state and non-state actors grapple with how best to promote the health of communities and populations, including the most effective strategies for: preventing disease; ensuring efficient and high quality health care; reducing health inequalities;

These challenges extend beyond the traditional domain of the health sector, requiring engagement with economic and social policy and a range of non-state actors including third sector organisations, commercial interests and international agencies.

Who this programme is for

The MSc in Health Policy is designed for individuals interested in a wide range of health-related roles including: government and international agencies; health advocacy health administration and health care delivery; consultancies; advisory roles; the commercial sector; health-related research

Our students come from countries at all levels of economic development and from a wide range of disciplinary backgrounds, with many using the MSc as an investment to develop their careers or move into a more policy-focused role.

While the programme has a strong policy focus, it also includes an academic orientation so is good preparation for further research at PhD level.
