About

The Global Health Policy (Online Learning) programme offered by The University of Edinburgh provides students with the skills they need to play a leading role in the formulation of health policies at the national and transnational levels.

Overview

The Global Health Policy (Online Learning) programme offered by The University of Edinburgh situates health, health inequalities and health policy in a global context, examining the extent to which health and its determinants are shaped by social, economic and political processes and the impacts on health policy of multiple factors.

With its multidisciplinary approach and online distance learning delivery,this programme will provide you with a flexible and focused examination of health, health inequalities and health policy in a global context.

Whether you’re from a health or social science background, you’ll develop a critical awareness of the role of the state, the commercial sector, civil society and international organisations in health policy and global governance, and an understanding of the challenges confronting policymakers in addressing health and reducing health inequalities.

Career opportunities:

Our students come from a diverse range of professional, personal, disciplinary and geographical backgrounds. Many use our MSc as an investment to develop their careers or to move into a more policy-focused role, though the programme also has an academic orientation and is therefore good preparation for further research at the PhD level.

The programme aims to equip students for senior roles in national, regional or global health organisations, research institutions, non-governmental organisations and private sector consultancies.

On graduating, you will have the skills you need to help these organisations respond to a range of key global issues, from the emergence of new pandemics and antibiotic resistance, to the role of private actors in strengthening healthcare systems, to the challenge of regulating multinational corporations as part of efforts to combat non-communicable diseases.
