Teaching is delivered through a variety of methods including group lectures, course specific seminars and small group sessions. You will also participate in self-directed study and wider reading, as well as individual and group practical sessions.

The course is designed to encourage you to progress towards greater self-direction in your studies; you are encouraged to develop insight into your own learning styles and thus to become responsible for your own learning and professional development. Personal and professional development is fostered through academic study, the promotion of self-directed learning activities, and implementation of a research project under supervision.

Students encounter a wide range of teaching and learning strategies appropriate to the learning context. Combining these strategies during the course enables students to develop an investigative, independent and individualised approach to learning and to undertake an extended research project.

There is a wide variety of optional modules and also a broad and exciting range of research projects including humanities projects, laboratory projects and clinical projects. Research projects will be offered in London and internationally.  This diversity is common across our whole MSc Global Health suite of programmes.

Through designing the programme as a series of related but independent modules, we aim to deliver a highly flexible programme. You have the option a full MSc over one year full-time or two years part-time. Each module can also be studied independently as Continued Professional Development (CPD).

At St George’s, you’ll benefit from working as part of a small, close-knit team. Students, clinicians and researchers work happily and effectively together in a small community, with all the advantages that brings for personal input and development.
