Overview
Decisions made at the global or international level, including those related to trade, aid, conflict and climate change, can have a profound impact on health at the national and local levels.
For example, when the International Monetary Fund, US government and Harvard-trained economists such as Jeffrey Sachs, encouraged former Soviet Union states to undertake a rapid transition to capitalism in the early-1990s, the subsequent economic “Shock Therapy” caused mass unemployment and seven million people died prematurely from so-called diseases of despair related to increased alcohol consumption.
Another example is the ten to twelve million people with HIV/AIDS who died unnecessarily because patent-holding pharmaceutical companies, with the support of US and European governments, used international law to obstruct the sale of low cost generic antiretroviral drugs to poor people in sub-Saharan Africa.
The MSc in Global Health Law and Governance encourages students to critically analyse the manner in which global and international institutions, instruments, and policies influence public health. Students will examine the role of the World Health Organization, and other key global health actors. This includes: international organizations including the World Bank, International Monetary Fund, and World Trade Organization; philanthropic actors such as the Gates Foundation; private companies including Big Pharma and Big Tobacco; and global health partnerships such as GAVI and the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.

Full-time

Undertaking an MSc programme is a serious commitment, with weekly contact hours being in addition to numerous hours of independent learning and research needed to progress at the required level. When coursework or examination deadlines are approaching independent learning hours may need to increase significantly. Each module you study is worth 15 credits. University guidelines suggest that for every 15 credits, a student will need to study for 150 hours. You will usually have one 1-hour lecture and one 2-hour seminar per module, per week. You should expect to be on campus at least 3 days a week.

Part-time

Our part-time study options mean you can complete this MSc over two years. This MSc programme consist of four core modules, two specialist modules and two optional modules and finally a dissertation, worth a total of 180 credits.

A part time student is required to take two of the core module worth 15 credits in semester one of the first year. In the second semester of the first year a part time student will take two specialist modules of 15 credits. The first year teaching is completed by early April, and final assessments submitted by the end of May.

In the second year a part time student will take the other two core modules worth 15 credits in semester one, and in the second semester they would take a further two optional modules worth 15 credits. In the second year a part time student would research and write their 10,000-12,000 word dissertation worth 60 credits. This is usually submitted in August.

University guidelines suggest that for every 15 credits, a student will need to study for 150 hours. This is worth considering when thinking about studying part time. You will usually have one 1-hour lecture and one 2-hour seminar per module, per week.
