With the advances of mobile technologies such as chatbots, wearable technologies, Internet of Medical Things and the continuous boost in smartphone penetration, digital health helps to improve the healthcare delivery by making it more personalised and pervasive and by providing more predictive and preventive cares to its users.

The aim of our interdisciplinary MSc Digital Health is to build a digital health workforce to bridge the knowledge gap between healthcare and computing and address today’s and tomorrow’s design challenges in developing digital health solutions.

If your first degree is within computing and healthcare related disciplines this course will give you the required knowledge and skills to become a visionary digital health technologist, and will provide you with a potential ‘fast-track’ into the healthcare and social care profession. Our course is distinctive in producing graduates who are able to understand the healthcare and social care perspective and create a strategic view of digital health product development, and who can also manage and lead the development of such products and services.
