what is the future career development of this？
Dear Ranger, thank you for asking this. There are numerous opportunities for health economists across the pharmaceutical industry, consultancy, academia, public sector, health sector etc. Our graduates tend to be successful in perusing the career of their choice once they complete their MSc studies. There are some videos of students and alumni on our webpages.
Is there a chance to take part in work based placements during the course? And have previous students been able to get placements?
Dear Margaretha, thank you for your question. Yes, we have the option for students to take part in placements as part of their dissertation module. They undertake the research and writing of their dissertation in a placement setting (NHS, consultancy etc.). Yes, we have been able to offer students who wanted them these placement opportunities for this year, and we expect to have placements next academic year.

what is the difference between the Health Economics and Health policy course and Health Economics and Econometrics ?
Dear Benjamin, thank you for your question. The main difference is that the MSc in Health Economics & Econometrics has modules on Econometrics and Micro Economics. This MSc course requires applicants to have some prior learning experience in Econometrics or a similar subject. The MSc in Health Economics and Health Policy requires a good undergraduate degree but no specific subject is required. This MSc has additional training around Health Policy. I hope this helps, we would be happy to discuss further if this would be useful.
