Dissertation (Research Project)
Our MSc in Global Health has a strong research component. The dissertation or research project allows students to develop an area of expertise through in-depth focus on a topic of their particular interest.
Students can gain first-hand research experience with one of our overseas partner institutions. With the support of a research supervisor, students are expected to learn and work independently, access and critique information from a variety of sources, and competently design and report a research project. Students will be also required to obtain the necessary ethics approvals when needed.
