A PhD or MPhil in Health Economics at the Swansea Centre for Health Economics (SCHE) offers an outstanding opportunity to make an original contribution to the development and application of health economics and outcome research to real life issues in healthcare delivery and policy. Offering flexibility through a wholly research-based mode of study, our MSc by Research in Health Economics course is perfect for those looking to balance work, life and study commitments You will develop skills in core health economic methods and analysis to design and deliver your own research project, supported by a tailor-made programme of supervision and training.
