International Health Management and Leadership (Online) MSc/PgDip/PgCert

Core modules

Year 2

Optional modules

Structure

The course is taught completely online. This allows you to fit your studies around part or full-time employment. We recommend that you spend approximately 150 hours of study for each 15-credit module. This is equivalent to about 10-12 hours of study time per week.

You can progress through the course in different ways. Some students apply for the Postgraduate Certificate first, or take single modules for Continuing Professional Development (CPD). This pathway suits people who have worked for many years and are unsure about their ability to fit part time postgraduate study into their daily routine. Others apply directly for the Diploma or Masters. If you are taking modules as CPD, you will accumulate credits for those that you successfully complete. You can put your credits for individual modules towards your application for the PG Certificate, Diploma or MSc.

The content of our courses is reviewed annually to make sure it is up-to-date and relevant. Individual modules are occasionally updated or withdrawn. This is in response to discoveries through our world-leading research, funding changes, professional accreditation requirements, student or employer feedback, outcomes of reviews, and variations in staff or student numbers. In the event of any change we'll consult and inform students in good time and take reasonable steps to minimise disruption.
