The Health Economics and Policy programme is suitable for both UK-based and international students. It provides an opportunity for those seeking to enhance their academic knowledge of the discipline and be better qualified for positions in the public sector, pharmaceutical companies or international organisations. Our postgraduate students extend their knowledge beyond a single discipline and possess a wide range of skills to aid employability.
The programme begins with a compulsory three-day Induction Academy in Lancaster University followed by modules delivered online. In Year 1 students take two specialist modules that cover the theory and practice of health economics and policy as well as a module on data analysis. Year 2 starts with an optional autumn Academy in Lancaster followed by an online module on systematic literature reviewing and completion of a dissertation.
