Course Summary

COURSE OVERVIEW

Health economics is at the core of innovation, health technology assessment, prioritisation and programme budgeting within the UK NHS and worldwide. A PhD or MPhil in Health Economics at the Swansea Centre for Health Economics (SCHE) offers an outstanding opportunity to make an original contribution to the development and application of health economics and outcome research to real-life issues in healthcare delivery and policy.

Offering flexibility through a wholly research-based mode of study, our MSc by Research in Health Economics course is perfect for those looking to balance work, life and study commitments

You will develop skills in core health economic methods and analysis to design and deliver your own research project, supported by a tailor-made programme of supervision and training. This can include developing knowledge and skills in aspects of the use of epidemiology, quantitative research and routine data analysis as well as applying health economic analysis as part of health technology assessment, public health and evaluation of health and social care interventions and services. We also offer particular expertise in the area of prioritisation and in the design, use and interpretation of patient-reported outcomes.

As a student at the College of Human and Health Sciences, you will benefit from a dynamic and supportive research environment with many opportunities to make connections across disciplines and develop links with organisations and policymakers both in the UK and abroad. As such, you can be confident that your research will inform and be informed by the wider health and social care environment.

According to the most recent Research Excellence Framework in 2014-2021, over 75% of the research carried out at the college was of international or world-leading quality.

You will be joining a university that was named ‘University of the Year’ and ‘Postgraduate’ runner up in the What Uni Student Choice Awards 2019.
