Queen Mary offers a range of postgraduate degrees in global health and development.

Given the current global public health challenges, it is an interesting time to study a postgraduate degree in this area. The effects of the Covid-19 pandemic are likely to be long-lasting, and everyone studying and working in public health will have an important role to play in the future.

Our range of programmes give you the opportunity to study full-time or part-time on campus or online, and you can also choose specialist degrees in dental public health and public mental health.

Campus-based programmes

Most of our global and public health programmes are taught at our Whitechapel campus in the East End of London. The Wolfson Institute of Population Health offers our flagship programme, MSc Global Public Health and Policy

Royal London Hospital buildings

The team also delivers a specialist MSc programme in Public Mental Health in collaboration with the Centre for Psychiatry in the Wolfson Institute.

Alternatively, you may be interested in our Wellcome Trust funded MRes Health Data in Practice, which is the entry point to the 4 year PhD Programme in Health Data in Practice.
