Why Edinburgh

We were the first UK University to address the need for One Health professional training by providing a dedicated Master’s programme.

Launched in 2014, this MSc programme capitalises on the many strengths of the University of Edinburgh across multiple disciplines to deliver world-class teaching in One Health and provide the key training and skills required for a successful career in this emerging field.

In the national Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey (2019), we received a 90% student satisfaction rating, reflecting the hard work the team puts in to build and support the learning community who come together to teach and learn on this programme.

The One Health programme is part of the Global Health Academy, and we share many elective courses with other programmes in the Academy.

Career opportunities

The One Health MSc aims to provide interested professionals with the knowledge, skills and awareness required to work within a One Health framework that recognises the importance of interdisciplinary working and the interrelatedness of human, animal and environmental health.

Graduates from our programme can expect to enhance their prospects in:
