The Global Health programme is run by the Wellcome Trust Brighton and Sussex Centre for Global Health Research and offers individuals an opportunity to equip themselves with the knowledge and skills to contribute to the improvement of health and the achievement of equity in health globally.
There are several key strengths that make BSMS a unique place to study Global Health:
To effectively address the wider determinants of health, individuals need to have an understanding of disciplines as wide-ranging as epidemiology, statistics, economics, anthropology, and politics. At BSMS, we draw on expertise from across the University of Brighton and University of Sussex to offer a vibrant programme that enables students to build a solid foundation in knowledge and skills.
We work closely with the Institute of Development Studies (IDS), one of the world's leading organisations for research on international development, and with the Sussex Centre for Global Health Policy. BSMS students have the chance to study optional modules with these institutions, and learn about the current challenges in policy and practice.
The MSc dissertation project provides students with an opportunity to gain real-world experience of global health research and policy-making processes. With established links with Brighton-based non-governmental organisations (e.g. AIDS Alliance, Target TB, Health Partners International) and overseas partners (e.g. Lusaka-Brighton Link project, Podoconiosis Control Initiative), student research has the potential to inform current work in global health as well as improving future employment prospects.
BSMS is delighted to announce the launch of a number of scholarships for students admitted to full-time Master's degree in Global Health at the Wellcome Trust Centre for Global Health Research.
