All courses require completion of all four Core modules and completion of these modules alone will gain you a Postgraduate Certificate. If you wish to progress to a Postgraduate Diploma you will need to successfully complete a further four modules from the Optional module list, and to gain a full Masters Degree you will need to complete all the Core modules, four Optional modules and a dissertation.

All core modules and all IGH optional modules can be taken as Short or Taster courses.  Taster courses are credit bearing and count towards the below IGH qualifications should you decide to carry on your studies.  Taster students should check with the Programme Teaching Administrator that the Optional modules they plan to study can go towards the particular PG Dip/MSc programme they would like to achieve.  (Some modules are specific to the PG Cert/Dip/MSc in International Child Health).
