Course summary

The MSc in Modelling for Global Health is a full-time one-year programme which will train a new generation of modellers with cutting edge multi-disciplinary skills to support developing global health systems at sub-national, national and international levels.

The course will aim to develop your:

  • repertoire of skills in mathematical and economic modelling, scientific programming, global health financing and related cutting-edge bioinformatics and analytics;
  • breadth of knowledge of current challenges and issues in global health; and
  • range of techniques and tools for communication with key stakeholders from policy, implementation, commercial and research sectors.


The allocation of graduate supervision for this course is the responsibility of the Nuffield Department of Medicine and it is not always possible to accommodate the preferences of incoming graduate students to work with a particular member of staff. Under exceptional circumstances a supervisor may be found outside the Nuffield Department of Medicine.
