MSc in Health Economics


Course Description

Aims of the programme

The MSc in Health Economics has been running since 1978 and the course has been attended by over 750 British and Overseas students. It provides a comprehensive training in the theory and practice of Health Economics and gives students the experience and skills needed for research and health service decision-making. Graduates go on to work in government departments, research units, universities, national health services and health care organisations, and the pharmaceutical industry.

The normal entry requirement for the MSc is an upper-second class honours degree in economics or equivalent. However many students have other qualifications, including medicine, pharmacy, and nursing. The Department provides five-week Summer Session course in microeconomics and quantitative methods for non-economists.

The Health Economics Resource Centre

The Health Economics Resource Centre (HERC) provides a suite of rooms that combine the teaching materials, computing facilities, information resources, and secretarial support used in the full range of health economics training programmes offered by the department.
The principle aim of the resource centre is to provide readily available facilities for private study and research, forming a base for students attending the MSc in Health Economics and for the group of doctoral students in health economics.
