Study with us
As part of the University of Oxford, our Centre offers a unique experience to graduate students, including the opportunity to work with leading academics and with some of the very best libraries, laboratories, museums and collections worldwide.
The MSc in International Health and Tropical Medicine is a full-time one-year multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary programme examining major challenges to the health of populations in resource-limited contexts. The course embraces the breadth and complexity of global health challenges facing resource-limited settings, and equips candidates with the tools and awareness to contribute to innovative solutions.
The Postgraduate Diploma in Global Health Research is a part-time taught programme, delivered entirely online over four terms (14 months). The course is designed for those involved in the funding, design, delivery or regulation of research in global health. It will equip students with a thorough understanding of the steps and processes required to conduct high quality and ethically framed studies within the contextual realities of resource constrained settings.
The MSc in Modelling for Global Health is a full-time one-year taught programme that provides interdisciplinary content on modelling, health evidence to inform the modelling, and policy processes to inform decisions. Week-long modules are delivered through a mix of interactive practical sessions and lectures in person at Oxford. Demand for a skilled workforce in this field is on the rise and there is great potential for mathematical and economic modelling to help guide policy for national health systems and international policymaking.
Starting October 2022 and based on the MSc in Modelling for Global Health, our new Training Programme in Modelling for Global Health allows participants to select a bespoke set of short courses from the Modelling for Global Health curriculum.

The Nuffield Department of Medicine (NDM) is one of the largest and most highly regarded departments of medicine in Europe and noted for the wide range and excellence of its basic and clinical research (rated 5* in research assessment exercises).
As a part of the Nuffield Department of Medicine, the Centre offers doctoral studies through the NDM Prize Studentships. These are fully-funded awards and are open to outstanding candidates from any country without restriction.
Around two thirds of our graduate students are international. Our prospective graduates often have questions for us about what it's like to come to Oxford and live in the UK, so we've put together some answers.
