Course content

This programme is an ideal introduction to international health for students with limited experience in the sector. It has a strong emphasis on research methods training - an essential grounding if you intend to work in international health policy, systems or programmes, or to study at PhD level.

The International Health MSc equips you with the skills to help achieve international development goals and reduce the burden of diseases borne by people in low- and middle-income countries. You’ll develop your understanding of international health issues, systems and programmes and policies. You’ll learn to analyse factors that cause inequalities in health status and resources and access to health information and services.

You will be able to work with, and research, diverse populations, geo-political environments and health systems.

You’ll also benefit from the international learning environment with fellow-professionals from a range of countries and areas of expertise.

More information

On this programme you have the opportunity to take part in a one-week study visit to Geneva, attending workshops and meetings with World Health Organization staff and visits to other organisations, such as the United Nations, Red Cross, World Vision, Médecins Sans Frontières, International Hospital Federation and the World Council of Churches.

The International Health MSc is designed for those interested in pursuing a research career with a focus on international health policy, systems or programmes. It is also appropriate for those who intend to work within international health policy, systems or programmes.

The programme is run by the Nuffield Centre for International Health and Development, based in the Leeds Institute of Health Sciences.

Course content

Core (compulsory) modules provide students who do not have extensive prior experience with a detailed introduction to the key issues and challenges within international health policy, systems and programmes. You’ll become familiar with the current debates around health, poverty and development

The optional modules allow you to develop your knowledge and skills in specific areas of interest. You can view the full range of optional modules in our programme catalogue which you can access via our website.

A strong emphasis on developing research skills prepares students for future careers in international health and provides a strong grounding for those who intend to pursue further postgraduate studies.

A distinctive feature of this programme is the research project, which allows you to gain first-hand experience of research into health systems and programmes, usually in an overseas context.

Career opportunities

Graduates of this programme have gone into a range of careers, including working for major international NGOs, working in national-level research organisations, and undertaking further postgraduate research.

The Nuffield Centre for International Health and Development has taught international health and development programmes at Leeds for almost 30 years and so has a large alumni network of health professionals in senior positions around the world.
