The main aim of this programme is to develop the skills and knowledge needed to fulfil roles as global health implementation practitioners, policy-makers, or academics. This is achieved through the provision of a detailed theoretical understanding of the global health implementation literature and issues within the field associated with the attainment and maintenance of health, on a global level. We hope to support the development of critical thinkers and radical practitioners in global health implementation. It accords with a pedagogy of collegiality, thereby placing peer-interaction and student centred learning at the heart of the curriculum.

Teaching and assessment methods

The programme will be delivered through face-to-face and e-seminars, tutorials, practical classes, and workshops by academics from across the University (e.g. the Schools of Medicine, Management, Geography & Geosciences, International Relations, and Psychology & Neuroscience); members of the local health board in NHS Scotland; and guest academics, policy makers and practitioners.

Supervision of the dissertation will be undertaken by relevant staff across the University. There may also be opportunities to undertake a short placement out with the University as part of the dissertation project; however, this will vary from year to year.

Assessment will be non-exam-based, and will incorporate written assignments, oral and poster presentations, peer- and self-assessment.

Tuition fee scholarships for part of the fees may be available for applicants from low- and middle-income countries, the number of which may vary from year-to-year.

Careers

Career prospects for graduates of the MSc in Global Health Implementation include practical/clinical, policy, and academic positions. The job market is competitive and additional international experience is often very appealing to employers.

Features

The University of St Andrews, as a small institution with a strong unified academic community, is exceptionally well placed to offer students the benefits of interdisciplinary studies. In the contemporary complex world students need to be prepared to call upon a strong background incorporating skills and a wider academic knowledge which crosses the boundaries of the traditional subject silos. Students taking one of our interdisciplinary degrees can be exposed to excellent academic researchers at the forefront of their discipline and will benefit from the rich dialogue that results from a diverse postgraduate class setting.

Graduates from these programmes can expect to have developed effective communication skills, intercultural understanding and the ability to critically analyse information to solve complex interdisciplinary problems. These strengths are valued by future employers and are equally valuable to those wishing to pursue a research career with an interdisciplinary aspect.
