On-line applications for the European Master of Science International Health degree programme for the academic year 2014-15 will be accepted from September 2013 until December 2013. A number of substantial scholarships will be available for both non-EU and EU applicants.  You can also apply as a self-funded student or if you have other scholarship funding.

Applications for the programme are handled centrally by the Erasmus Mundus consortium secretariat in Bordeaux, France.

Why should you apply for this programme?

This prestigious, one-year MSc programme is for you if you are a professional working in International Health and Global Health who wishes to further develop their skills and knowledge to improve your practice in the field and help advance your careers. In this programme, you will learn to identify and critically analyse key factors shaping global health and the health and well-being of populations in low- and middle-income countries, as well as how to formulate effective and appropriate responses to complex health-related issues.

Programme courses and research project supervision are offered by a range of well-established partner institutions whose teaching and research staff are recognised for their international and global health expertise. Moreover, this programme offers you the opportunity to experience diverse international educational and cultural settings.

Your peers on the programme will come from a wide range of backgrounds and countries. With them, you will be able to participate in a rich exchange of ideas and professional practice. Past participants have included health managers, medical doctors, research coordinators, psychologists, lecturers and educators, project managers, nurses and social scientists.

How is the programme structured?

You will have the advantage of specialising in one of five study tracks: 1) Disease Control; 2) Health Systems, Health Policy and Management; 3) Sexual and Reproductive Health; 4) Child Health; and 5) Health Research Methods.

The study tracks generally follow this mobility pattern:

Sep-Dec: Core Course/Modules in first institution

Jan-Apr: Advanced Modules in second institution

May-Aug/Sep: Research Project and Thesis Component in second or third institution, in Europe or Overseas

UCL Institute for Global Health, former CIHD, offers optional modules and the research project/thesis component for Track 4: Child Health, and the Core Course for Track 5: Health Research Methods.

Are there scholarships?

If you apply for the European MSc in International Health programme, you may also apply for an Erasmus Mundus scholarship funded by the European Commission. You must be accepted onto the MSc programme in order to be considered for a scholarship.

These are very competitive scholarships for applicants outside and within the European Union countries. The funding covers programme tuition fees, as well as offering generous stipends to help cover basic living costs, and in many cases, travel and other mobility costs.

There are also opportunities for other scholarships from ministries, embassies and international cooperation organisations. For further information please contact the European MSc Secretariat in Bordeaux.

Who are the university partners?

The UCL Institute for Global Health (IGH), former CIHD, offers this joint degree with six other European universities in France, Germany, Norway, Scotland, Denmark and the Netherlands, and three universities in Mexico, Thailand and South Africa.
