Overview

Both HLST207 and HLST208 are available with professional experience in May 2021 and September 2021 intakes. And HLST207 is also available without the professional experience in January 2021 entry only.

The impetus for the MSc Global Healthcare Management programme stems from recognition, nationally and internationally, of the need to build leadership and management capabilities for those wishing to pursue careers within health care, social care and third sector organisations.

Its rationale stems from the recognition, nationally and globally of the unique challenges and complexities that face the next generation of managers and leaders of health and social care systems across the world and the need to build leadership capability.

The MSc Global Healthcare Management programme has been carefully designed, drawing on the expertise of health, social care and leadership and management from within the School of Nursing, Midwifery and Health to support the enhancement of your personal/professional attributes, abilities to think creatively and apply entrepreneurial skills, in leading the delivery of quality health and social care services and responding to the global health challenges now and in the future. Interdisciplinary learning is a feature of this programme with students studying alongside their peers on other MSc programmes delivered within the faculty.

The MSc Global Healthcare Management with Professional Experience, is an extended full-time Masters programme with a substantive professional experience component. Within the professional experience modules, you will undertake an internship* with an external organisation or, campus-based professional experience*.   The host organisation may include the University.

Internships may be paid or unpaid, and this will depend on what is being offered and agreed with the host organisation. If you do not wish to undertake an internship or are not successful in securing an internship will undertake a campus-based professional experience, which will deliver similar learning outcomes through supervised projects and activities designed to offer students the opportunity to integrate theory with an understanding of professional practice.

EU student fees

EU nationals and their family members starting in the 2019/20 academic year remain eligible for the same fees as home students and the same financial support. Financial support comes from Student Finance England, and covers undergraduate and postgraduate study for the duration of their course, providing they meet the residency requirement.

For tuition fee loans

EU nationals must have resided in the European Economic Area (EEA) or Switzerland for the three years prior to the start of their course. The purpose of that three year residency should not have been mainly for the purpose of receiving full time education.

Career prospects

Graduate Immigration Route visa

Based on current information from the UK Government, international students whose study extends beyond summer 2021 may be eligible for a visa under the UK Government’s Graduate Immigration Route, which will enable students to stay and work, or look for work, in the UK at any skill level for up to two (2) years. Check the most up to date guidance available to check your eligibility and any updates from the UK Government before making an application or enrolment decision.

Successfully completing a Global Healthcare Management MSc, or Global Healthcare Management with Professional Experience MSc is an excellent way to build leadership and management capabilities for those wishing to pursue careers within health care, social care and third sector organisations.

The learning and development demanded by both courses aims to give graduates the skills for senior level employment; be it related to a discrete service department or hospital unit, private or publically funded hospital or service or healthcare company. It encourages students to develop the skill set for posts in, for example, local, regional, national or even international government policy making bodies (for example Professional Bodies, Ministries of Health, World Health Organization).

Opportunities within health related industries e.g. the pharmaceutical industry may also be relevant for some graduates.
