Global Health Implementation (MSc)

Course Description

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.


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.
