Global Health (Research)

Improving health and achieving equity in healthcare

 

The study, research and practice of global health is geared towards improving health and achieving equity in healthcare. If you are eager to look beyond national boundaries and disciplinary distinctions when it comes to health and healthcare, then our master’s programme in Global Health may be a good fit for you.

The research master’s in Global Health is a small-scale programme with a ‘hands-on’ approach. It brings together students and staff from all over the world with a wide variety of academic backgrounds. This diversity of perspectives enriches the discussions in your courses and your team projects. Through intensive individual and group research assignments and the two internships, you will have ample opportunity to discover where your passions lie within global health.

 

 

COVID-19 pandemic

With the current COVID-19 pandemic, we are facing one of the greatest global health challenges of our time. This has created an ‘all hands on deck’ situation with our researchers and students to understand this enormously complex challenge and to develop innovative solutions. Within the Athena Institute, we are currently working on different research project on COVID 19. Find out more by visiting our dedicated website about COVID-19.

 

 

Large-scale, sustainable impact

Analysing health problems locally usually leads to small-scale changes that are not very sustainable. In this programme, you work to achieve a larger-scale and sustainable impact by taking a systems approach, by looking beyond the local level to the different ways of institutionalising and influencing policies. Understanding problems and developing solutions at this level requires interacting with a lot of actors during your research, including health professionals, patients, policymakers, and other public- and private-sector stakeholders. In this programme, you will learn how to identify the relevant stakeholders, how to interact with them, and how to co-create solutions. Global health research is far from sitting behind a desk and crunching numbers; it’s about working with a variety of others to solve health problems that affect the lives of many people around the world.

In order to gain admission to the Global Health Master’s programme, you will need to have at least a Bachelor’s degree from an accredited research university including at least three full years of academic study amounting to a minimum of 180 ECTS or equivalent. We do not require a GRE or GMAT test score.

We assess these skills and qualities through the specific admission requirements listed below:

  •  A Bachelor’s degree in one of the disciplines linked to Global Health (e.g. Medical Biology, Health Sciences, Medical Anthropology, Medicine, Health Economics, Health Management, Pharmacy, Psychology, Nursing, Public policy) with basic knowledge of epidemiology/statistics (preferably at least 6 ECTS). A deficiency in the knowledge of Epidemiology can be compensated by taking additional courses (before the commencement of the study).
  •  A GPA of 3.0 (7.0 in the Dutch grading system) or higher. For non-EU students, the transcript and the quality of the Bachelor’s program are evaluated by the VU International Office. If the diploma or a previous study program is not known by the International Office, the file of the student is sent to the NUFFIC office for additional evaluation and advice.

  •  Receive a positive recommendation on the basis of an interview with the program director and/or master coordinator (held in person or via Skype depending on the location and possibilities of the student).
