University of Aberdeen
Global Health and Management
A second 2.2 class Honours degree or equivalent, usually in a health-related honours undergraduate degree (medicine, midwifery, nursing, public health, pharmacy). However, we will also consider applications from students with a pure science, social or management science first degree and who have a keen interest in health.
Stage 1 core courses: preparing for work based placements; generic skills; epidemiology; applied statistics. Elective courses: health economics; health behaviour change; fundamentals of research design; evidence based health. Stage 2 core courses: global health; health policy and systems research. Elective courses: work-based placements with health and development sector organisations; internationalisation; human resources management; qualitative health research; values and ethics in public health; systematic reviewing. Stage 3: global health research (thesis) project.
Each course has its own continuous assessment criteria based on the progress of practical and course work as well as a written degree examination. Progression to a research project is dependent on performance in the individual courses. The MSc project is assessed with the submission of a thesis and via examination.
