The MSc/Dip by Research in Public Health Policy aims to provide a rigorous postgraduate training to graduates interested in pursuing interdisciplinary research across public health and social sciences. It offers a structured training towards either research for a PhD or MPhil or, as a stand-alone degree, the basis for a research career. The programme is designed to be accessible to students from diverse academic backgrounds, notably the medical and social sciences, and will enable students to develop the skills necessary to conduct research in international public health policy.
The programme integrates generic social science and discipline-specific public health research training, and applies social science research methods to public health issues. Students benefit from a broad range of training not only in the Centre for International Public Health Policy, but also in the School of Social & Political Studies and the Public Health Sciences section.Learning Outcomes
