The University’s Global Health Academy has been awarded 5 fully funded studentships across five online Masters programmes within the domain of Global Health.
The scholarship includes full tuition fee and resources to enhance student participation, access and research skills. This includes participation in a summer school; contribution towards student costs of internet access & printing (journal articles, etc); and a contribution to MSc project costs (materials, travel, etc).
The scholarships will be awarded to a candidate who is accepted for admission on to an eligible programme and who is a citizen of and resident in one of the following developing Commonwealth countries:
Papua New Guinea
MSc Clinical Education
MSc Family Medicine
MSc Global Challenges
MSc Paediatric Emergency Medicine
eMPH Public Health
Students enrolled on these eligible Masters programmes become members of the Global Health Academy community which encourages both intra- and inter-disciplinary engagement and communication.
The Global Health Academy initiative cuts across the traditional vertical health structures moving to novel integrated health systems training. Our aim is to promote a global community of practice where students can access multiple strands of knowledge from many different experts to tackle some of the biggest challenges in the 21st century.
For example, non-communicable diseases are changing the face of African, Asian and Latin American health and healthcare and require not just disease specialists but experts in logistics, in training and policy and in technologies especially, e- and m-health, in order to create stronger community health. Students taking these courses find them rewarding in the opportunity they present to engage with professionals from industry, medicine, policy and research.
