Ranking and student feedback
International and global approaches to public health have become significant with more emphasis being placed on health and wellbeing inequalities between different countries due to disparate wealth and development.
Global health has important implications for global security. For example threatening social and economic development and generating significant challenges around migration, the global transmission of disease, health and illness and the inter-connectivity.
Health studies now proceed beyond simple local and national dimensions and people across the world and require global solutions.
Our programme will provide students with a rich and varied learning environment in which to explore public health ideas relevant to a global audience. Student participation is key to this programme's delivery and we encourage applications from those with relevant work experience that they can bring to the classroom.
The global network of students with individual perspectives and experience is a valuable resource that will be unique to the Global Public Health MSc. Students are at the heart of this programme.
