Studying Global Health & Social Medicine is ideal for students seeking to improve health and wellbeing around the world by shaping effective polices and healthcare delivery systems.
Whether you want to promote responsible biomedical research, address global health inequities or ensure fairness across generations, our courses offer you the flexibility to discover your niche.
Our BA and BSc courses also offer a unique opportunity to study abroad for the year or intern with one of our partner organisations around the world. Meanwhile, our iBSc course trains you in critical areas of policy affecting older people and ageing societies – an area of pressing importance around the world.
Graduates go on to inform policy and communications in government, think tanks and research organisations like the Wellcome Trust; influence advocacy campaigns for non-profit organisations; and assist with emergency relief.
Apply for our online Global Health & Social Justice summer module
Applications are now open for the Global Health & Social Justice online module at King's Undergraduate Summer School – a three week intensive academic programme running from 29 June - 17 July 2020.
You'll learn about the global health challenges within larger political, social, cultural and economic contexts. Plus you'll work with a range of people to solve real global health problems – and even go on virtual excursions.
This year, we are also excited to host a public expert panel on participating, culture and humility in mental health: challenges and opportunities.
