About

Are you seeking postgraduate training that focuses on your employability, equips you with knowledge and skills to address complex and multidimensional global health issues, and enables you to make professional contributions towards positive health and social change? Then the Global Health and Management programme of the University of Aberdeen is for you.

Overview

At a Glance

On the Global Health and Management programme of the University of Aberdeen, you will gain knowledge and understanding of established and emerging concepts, issues, theories and practices in global health and management studies. You will develop appreciation of how these intersect with broader social, economic and political factors, and develop skills to critically engage with these debates. The aim is to develop multidimensional views for more complete impacts in the field.

You will learn about health and social research methods, global health and global citizenship, health systems and policy, and management studies. You will have opportunities to work in professional environments in the health and development sector in the UK and overseas, applying taught content in real world settings and conducting projects of practical significance. With supervision from world-class research academics, students also develop deepened knowledge into current research and methodological development in selected area(s) in a research environment.

Careers

Students are provided with opportunities to develop portfolios of work during the programme that relate to interests, strengths, previous training and experience, and career aspirations. The underlying assumption is that finding personal strengths and areas of interest is the key to unlocking a rewarding career.

As part of the programme, we offer an elective Work-Based Placement (WBP) course, in which students work with external health and development organisations in the UK and overseas. Students have been placed in research, advocacy and clinical organisations in Kenya, South Africa, Uganda, the UK and Zimbabwe. Placement students gain a unique experience, professional connections, transferable skills and a stand-out CV. A short film on placements produced by recent graduates can be viewed here.
