Course content

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 programme is invoiced at course level, allowing you to pick and choose your curriculum content, and manage your learning within flexible 5 or 11 week teaching blocks, which are offered at fixed time periods across the academic calendar.

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.

Possible subjects include:

  • Animal health
  • Biodiversity
  • Conservation and global citizenship
  • Forensic medicine and science
  • Global health
  • Infectious and non-communicable diseases
  • Sanitation and water issues

Online learning

Our online learning technology is fully interactive, award-winning and enables you to communicate with our highly qualified teaching staff from the comfort of your own home or workplace.

Our online students not only have access to Edinburgh’s excellent resources, but also become part of a supportive online community, bringing together students and tutors from around the world.

Programme structure

The courses are taught entirely online with extensive use of discussion forums in which students are encouraged to debate relevant issues with course tutors and colleagues.

Certificate

This is a postgraduate certificate for students from a diverse professional background but with a common interest in global health.

The programme is modular, offering a flexible student-centred approach to the choice of courses studied; students may choose to study one or more individual courses or complete a sufficient number of course credits to be awarded the certificate.

It takes between 12 and 36 months to complete the certificate.

Postgraduate Professional Development

The courses we offer reflect the range of research and teaching interests of our academic staff and promote discussion of significant issues relating to Global Health - whether human, animal or environmental.

Postgraduate Professional Development (PPD) is aimed at working professionals who want to advance their knowledge through a postgraduate-level course(s), without the time or financial commitment of a full Masters, Postgraduate Diploma or Postgraduate Certificate.

You may take a maximum of 50 credits worth of courses over two years through our PPD scheme. These lead to a University of Edinburgh postgraduate award of academic credit. Alternatively, after one year of taking courses you can choose to transfer your credits and continue on to studying towards a higher award on a Masters, Postgraduate Diploma or Postgraduate Certificate programme. Although PPD courses have various start dates throughout a year you may only start a Masters, Postgraduate Diploma or Postgraduate Certificate programme in the month of September. Any time spent studying PPD will be deducted from the amount of time you will have left to complete a Masters, Postgraduate Diploma or Postgraduate Certificate programme.

Further details of the potential for transfer to one of our host programmes can be found on the programme website:

Career opportunities

We value interdisciplinary debate on our courses and effective, professional communication skills form an important part of the outcomes of the programme.

Graduates can use their qualification to enhance their career prospects in international and national organisations that manage global health issues.
