The MSc in Health Economics is a taught Masters programme which introduces the student to the theoretical principles and practical techniques of economic analysis which are applied to inform health policy and health care decision-making within the evolving global context of technological development, population ageing, rising healthcare costs and changing patient preferences and expectations.

In particular, the programme seeks to equip students with the tools to examine individual behaviours with respect to health and health care, to explore alternative systems of health care finance and delivery, and to apply economic evaluation, preference elicitation and econometric techniques to inform health care resource allocation.

The programme consists of a mix of modules, which are delivered through a series of lectures, practical workshops, tutorials, and seminars from academic and industry experts, in addition to a supervised minor dissertation, which is generally completed over the course of a summer placement at an appropriate research agency.

The programme is designed for people interested in pursuing a career in the public sector, working in the government, the health service or public health agencies, in the private sector, working in the pharmaceutical, medical device or private care industries, or in the research sector, working with public, academic, or private consultancy agencies.

Programme Learning Outcomes:

  • Understand and appraise the fundamental theoretical and practical concepts and tools of health economics
  • Analyse and inform global health policy and/or healthcare industry questions using the applied practical techniques of health economic evaluation, health preference elicitation and health econometrics
  • Critically engage with the key global health policy questions of care system finance and delivery, and access to interventions and/or technologies

Course Outline:

The MSc in Health Economics consists of 90 ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System). Students complete a combination of modules (worth 5 or 10 ECTS) and a dissertation (10 ECTS) to fulfil the 90 ECTs requirement.
