PgCert Global Health Studies

PgCert Global Health Studies (Online Distance Learning) - 3 years part-time intermittent study 

The postgraduate Certificate and Diploma in Global Health and Infectious Diseases may appeal to a wide audience, including persons with appropriate experience from working within the animal or human health sectors.
Programme description
This programme is designed to enable those with a personal, academic or professional interest in 'global health' to study a variety of related subjects and join colleagues and fellow students in a global community.

The courses studied are selected by students (subject to minimum numbers and schedules).  The successful completion of 60 credit points within a 36 month period entitles the student to the award of the certificate.

Within this programme students can study subjects including:
    •    Biodiversity
    •    Global heath
    •    Infectious and non-communicable diseases
    •    Animal health
    •    Sanitation and water issues
    •    Conservation and global citizenship.
The courses are taught entirely online with extensive use of discussion forums in which students are encouraged to debate relevant issues with course tutors and colleagues.  A scientific background will be of benefit for some courses, although this is not a requirement.
