UCL Population Health Sciences


What our students say

Ben Howitt

Health Data Science MSc 

" It's a pretty small programme, which means that you get to know everyone. It also means that module tutors have enough time to tackle specific questions. What's also nice is the variety of backgrounds - we have clinicians, health informaticians and statisticians, so it's very multidisciplinary."

Anthony Mansaray

Global Health & Development MSc 

" This programme offers modules that cut across multiple disciplines with the specific focus on how they determine or shape global health outcomes. Its interdisciplinary nature has forged my understanding of complex issues from different philosophical points of view."

Dewi Nur Aisyah

Health Informatics PhD 

" I'm really interested in how using information technologies can improve health. Technology of whole genome sequencing is really appealing to me, and I have been able to learn more about that during my PhD at UCL."

Cara-lin Lonetree

Cell and Gene Therapy MSc 

" The breadth of information covered on the programme has exceeded my expectations, and to have it presented by experts in the field who are conducting research first-hand is very exciting."

Nitish Basant Adnani

Paediatrics and Child Health MSc 

" Aside from the fact that it is one of the highest ranked universities globally with world-renowned professional staff and facilities, the range of module selection offered by the programme allowed me to tailor my study and focus on the areas that I am most interested in. Child health is an expanding field that extends beyond the context medical science and also involves factors that influence the overall wellbeing of the child as well as their transition into the adults that they will become."

Oumou Longley

Population Health BSc (3rd year)

" As a relatively new programme, the quality of learning feels really rich due to the small class sizes and the willingness of tutors and lecturers to support and help students in the department. Also, it is engaging to learn about topics, such as the social determinants of health, and frontiers of knowledge in population health, that reflect society in a way that is useful for our careers/life outside of the degree."
