Find out more about the TEF.

Gain the knowledge to tackle 21st century health challenges with this unique multidisciplinary degree.
Our Global Health BSc is designed to give graduates a deep understanding of public health across disciplines. From pandemic diseases like ebola or HIV to the spread of drug-resistant bacteria and access to medicines in poor countries, global health issues are complex and multifaceted.
In your first year you'll develop your analytical and research skills and gain a solid grounding in a range of disciplines, including medicine, anthropology, economics, epidemiology, geography, law, philosophy, politics, sociology and statistics.
You'll then apply this knowledge to particular health issues, such as maternal and child health, climate change related illnesses, communicable and non-communicable diseases. Option modules give you the freedom to follow your own interests as you progress in your degree.
In the final year you’ll work on an extended self-directed research project and undertake a two-week placement. Previous students have been placed with local councils, health journals, non-government organisations and think tanks.
