This programme is designed to enable you to further develop your knowledge of current health care at the depth and breadth appropriate to Masters level work. In planning the programme and its delivery, we have sought to create a student-centred, flexible programme that enables you to select modules that meet your individual learning needs, career aspirations and interests.
The scope and flexibility of the programme will appeal to individuals with a theoretical interest in health-related issues, and is particularly suited to those who are seeking a non-clinical programme of study. The programme is open to health care professionals or individuals with an interest in health.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.
Admission to the programme is on the basis that applicants will have a BSc/BA Honours degree or equivalent. (Evidence of equivalence of your qualification(s) to the UK educational system of awards can be found at www.naric.org.uk). The degree should normally be a first- or upper second-class Honours degree.
You will also need to submit the following documentation in support of your application:
No work experience is required.
