Project Design and Management (Masters module/short course) (Not offered in 2018/2019)

Course content

The Institute for Global Health and Development (IGHD)

The Institute for Global Health and Development (IGHD) offers a range of awards through the Master’s Programme in Global Health and Development. These include the MSc Global Health, on which the majority of our students enroll, and provides the broadest range of choice. Our MSc Sexual and Reproductive Health, and MSc Social Development and Health, are our two more specialised awards reflecting focused pathways through the programme. Students should apply for the master’s award that best suits their career needs, but are able to revise their choice – subject to having studied appropriate modules – before progressing to the dissertation stage. For those not wishing to pursue a full master’s degree at this time, we offer a number of Postgraduate Certificate awards.
