Health and wellbeing
Our global challenge of health and wellbeing guides the way we work together across subject boundaries to find solutions to some of humanities biggest problems – like antibiotic-resistant diseases, regional lack of sanitation, cancer and HIV/AIDS.
This is one of four global challenges which unites our expertise – in areas ranging from clinical medicine to bioengineering – towards our goal of improving the health of all in society.
Find the right course for you
To help you search your study options, we’ve grouped our Master’s courses relevant to health and wellbeing by theme, rather than by department.
These broader categories are designed to help you explore all the ways you could contribute to making the world a better place – it may not be in a way you previously considered or in the department that matches your first degree.
