Course summary

Course Overview

On this course you will be studying alongside current and future global health practitioners from around the world and from a wide range of backgrounds and professions. You will have an opportunity to explore and develop your practices through analysing and critically reviewing the underlying and determining policies and principles. You will investigate what sustains health and wellbeing, how this is perceived, and how it can be achieved, particularly, in what are known as low- and middle-income countries, while at the same time recognising, as we now so strikingly know, that the challenges of global health are universal.

This exciting programme takes a multi-perspectival and interdisciplinary approach to support you as a global health practitioner in the development of your practice. Our aim is to enable you to recognise that, whatever and wherever you practise, you will do so most appropriately and effectively through having a clear understanding and appreciation of not just the culture in which you will be practising but your own culture, the one you come from. As such global health is recognised to draw on findings from both the social as well as the clinical sciences.

Through carefully selected contemporary case studies, involving the first-hand experience of lecturers and members of the University’s Centre for Global Health, you develop a critical understanding of what helps make projects sustainable. These case studies include, for example, educational programme development in Ghana with the Kintampo College of Health and a current countrywide mesh hernia repair surgery project in Tanzania. The current Covid-19 crisis is, itself, an all-consuming case study that inevitably is now seen as central to the content and purpose of the course.


Graduates of the MSc Global Health programme go on to pursue careers or advance their existing career in charitable organisations, businesses and the health service in the UK and abroad, with roles in general/project management, community and/or business development, campaigning, advocacy, fundraising, service improvement, policy analysis and development, evaluation and research, and health promotion. Alternatively, you may choose to take your studies further to a higher degree such as doctoral and professional doctorate studies.
