|Welcome to the Distance Learning Programme in Global Health Studies|
We are delighted to announce the new Post Graduate Certificate in Global Health Studies.
This programme is designed to enable those with a personal, academic or professional interest in 'global health' to study a variety of related subjects and join colleagues and fellow students in a global community. The courses studied are selected by students (subject to minimum numbers and schedules) and the successful completion of 60 credit points within a 36 month period entitles the student to the award of the certificate.
The breadth of content is unique (drawn as it is from at least four current Masters programmes) and the programme offers an opportunity to discuss the issues with colleagues in a genuinely global forum. Within this programme students can study subjects including biodiversity, global heath, infectious and non-communicable diseases, animal health, sanitation and water issues, conservation and global citizenship. Some courses benefit from a scientific background although this is not a requirement.
The programme is structured to equip students with a comprehensive knowledge base in various aspects of Global Health. The emphasis is on the interdisciplinary nature of the subject and this is reflected by the wide range of courses it is possible to study within the programme. We value interdisciplinary debate on our courses and effective, professional communication skills form an important part of the outcomes of the programme.
The programme is now open for applications (click here for more information)
