Course Summary

The MSc Health Analysis, Policy & Management has been developed to equip you with practical, evaluative, and analytical skills to allow you to influence and develop strategy and performance in the healthcare sector.

The skills you'll learn are sought after for roles at different levels in organisations across the health sector, including in hospitals, health systems, healthcare consulting firms, governments, and other local and international health organisations. They're also useful tools for beginning an academic research career in the area.

Our academics are actively engaged in research and consulting work for UK and international health organisations, including the English and Scottish National Health Services in the UK. You'll work on summer projects relevant in this context and where possible for these organisations.

This unique course takes a ‘systems thinking’ approach to improving decision-making in healthcare in the UK and internationally.


Classes are assessed by various methods, including written assignments, exams, practical team projects, presentations and individual projects. Exams will take place at the end of each semester in December and April/May.


This module will develop students? understanding of principles of health economic evaluation. Economic evaluation is concerned with the allocation of scarce resources, which is particularly important in healthcare provision today. Students will learn the tools to assess the effects and economic efficiency of health policy and interventions. The theory and methodologies students learn will provide them with practical tools that can be applied to healthcare provision planning in the public and private sectors. These tools can also help developers of health technologies and services (e.g., biomedical engineers, digital technology developers, and pharmacists) understand where the greatest value lies.
