  • Equip graduates with professional-level competency in the design, commissioning, and review of health technology assessments in multiple jurisdictions (globally), and enable them to contribute a health technology assessment perspective in multi-disciplinary contexts such as product development planning, prioritisation of research and government or international health policy planning.

The content of our courses is reviewed annually to make sure it’s up-to-date and relevant. Individual modules are occasionally updated or withdrawn. This is in response to discoveries through our world-leading research; funding changes; professional accreditation requirements; student or employer feedback; outcomes of reviews; and variations in staff or students numbers. In the event of any change we will consult and inform students in good time and take reasonable steps to minimise disruption.


The course is taught entirely online, and you study in your own time. The course is a mixture of online learning and independent study. We use customised online rooms within our Virtual Learning Environment to deliver course materials in an accessible and engaging format, including live online webinars allowing interaction with course tutors and other students.
