Course delivery statement
The importance of global health has never been more apparent. Our course focuses on understanding current global health issues, their complex determinants and potential solutions to various global health problems. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are swiftly adapting to necessary changes and maximising opportunities for enhancing learning on our Global Health MSc. As a Global Health team, our priority is the safety and well-being of our students and staff. Here is what you should know about the upcoming academic year (2020-2021):
The academic year will start as normal and term dates will not be changed. Induction for the Global Health programme is planned to take place on 9 September 2020, with teaching starting in the week beginning 14 September 2020.
It is likely that the Global Health MSc will be taught online for the whole year, using a blend of live, synchronous teaching, and pre-recorded/asynchronous materials. Our timetables, teaching methods and course content will all be adapted to make the most of this approach.
During the Spring term of 2021, students will have the opportunity to choose two from a range of optional modules. Some of the optional modules that we normally make available to our students are delivered by the University of Sussex and IDS, and depending on their decisions for provision it may or may not be possible to study these modules entirely online. We are committed to ensuring that all our students have a choice of optional modules which they can complete remotely.
In the Spring term of 2020, we successfully delivered two modules online, to positive feedback from students. You can find out more about our online teaching in the video below, featuring Dr Sarah Marshall, Lecturer in Global Health and Course Leader Global Pharmacy at BSMS.
