International Social Welfare and Health Policy

This programme is one of few in the world to combine the study of both social and welfare health policies.

It explores how an increasingly globalised world requires the development of innovative social welfare and health policies while providing students with the knowledge and skills to analyse, develop and manage policies at an advanced level. The programme offers a great student environment, which aids learning and positively affects completion rates. Students graduate into relevant positions in national and international NGOs, research institutes, universities, and public and private welfare organisations.
