Online MSc Population Health Sciences

Description

A focus on data

The programme offers a unique opportunity to understand how physical and social environments, individual behaviour, the distribution of resources and investment and genetics impact on the health status and inequalities in populations over time. You could study optional courses, such as advanced statistics, which enable you to gain greater insight into the data and provide more thought out solutions. Rather than being assessed through a dissertation, you will be taught through data analysis, reports, posters, presentations and journal articles. Learning in this way will equip you with the practical skills that are integral to careers in public health, health services, health policy or academia.

With industry-lead teaching and cutting-edge research, you’ll be able to study the entire programme without having to set foot on campus. You would be able to access the downloadable interactive resources, including live seminars, audio, video, and discussion areas, from anywhere and at any time. You can tailor the programme to meet your specific requirements. Whether you want to study an MSc, a PgDip or a PgCert, or choose your duration of study between 1 and 6 years, at the University of Glasgow, you can further your ambitions without compromising your current commitments.

FAQs

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At reed.co.uk courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on reed.co.uk, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as ABC Awards and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
