A new training programme created from the taught elements of the MSc in Modelling for Global Health. Designed to widen global access to our exciting new MSc programme and build modelling capacity in settings where it’s needed at affordable rates, combining both online and onsite options.

The Training Programme in Modelling for Global Health comprises a series of buildable one- and two-week modules delivered in Q4 and Q1 of every year. The modules offer the basic feeder topics for modelling - computing, statistics, mathematics - and build to offer advanced topics including model fitting, spatial modelling, financing.

Candidates for the training programme are invited to select modules to suit their training needs and arrange to attend either online or onsite depending on budget and availability. Custom courses can be delivered on case-by-case basis for a minimum of 10 participants.
