The International Health MSc equips you with the skills to help achieve international development goals and reduce the burden of diseases borne by people in low and middle-income countries. You’ll develop your understanding of international health issues, systems and programmes and policies. You’ll learn to analyse factors that cause inequalities in health status and resources and access to health information and services.
You’ll benefit significantly from the international learning environment with fellow professionals from a range of countries and areas of expertise. As part of studying with us, you will be able to work with, and research, diverse populations, geo-political environments and health systems.
Graduates of this International Health course from University of Leeds have gone into a range of careers, including working for major international NGOs, working in national-level research organisations, and undertaking further postgraduate research.
The Nuffield Centre for International Health and Development has taught international health and development programmes at Leeds for over 40 years and so has a large alumni network of health professionals in senior positions around the world.
