The Institute for Global Health and Development (IGHD) at QMU offers a range of awards which are aimed at those who wish to work in health policy and practice, particularly in low and middle income settings.
Additionally, the MSc Global Health courses and modules at the Queen Margaret University will better prepare students to assist in improving the lives of the most vulnerable people in the world, whether that be overseas or locally in Scotland.

Others have taken internships with organizations such as the WHO on graduation, while others have progressed to doctoral studies.
As a graduate of the MSc Global Health you will be well equipped for employment as a global health practitioner, senior health manager or policy maker working in, or advising regarding, a developing country or one in economic transition.
