Health Economics

In order to successfully obtain a Masters qualification, you will need to obtain a number of credits by passing individual modules. Most taught Masters will have a number of core modules which you must take and pass in order to obtain the qualification. The assessment of research Masters is almost always entirely by a single dissertation module or project.

A Master program in Health Economics prepares the student in the use of economic analysis and tools to understand problems in public health and economic development. The degree will train the student in his / her ability to occupy positions in both the public and the private sector overlooking international associations, public health institutions or even regional health authorities.

Education in the United Kingdom is a devolved matter with each of the countries of the United Kingdom having separate systems under different governments: the UK Government is responsible for England, and the Scottish Government, the Welsh Government and the Northern Ireland Executive are responsible for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, respectively.
