Registered healthcare professionals without these recognised qualifications will be considered on an individual basis and a wide range of prior experience may be taken into account.

To study over one year you will need to have successfully completed the Postgraduate Diploma in Applied Health Economics - either with Diploma MSc or another UK university having completed similar modules. We can discuss this with you as part of your application.
