23rd May 2018


Health, News

University of Essex Online today announces the launch of five brand-new courses.

For the first time our students can study Healthcare Management from the beginning with our CertHE and BSc undergraduate courses all the way to our postgraduate MSc in International Healthcare Management. These programmes are 100% online and part-time and will be awarded and validated by the University of Essex.

Healthcare is a subject area that affects everyone from all over the world, and these new courses give students a chance to delve into the worldwide management of this complex and vital field. Our courses will build on students’ experience whilst enhancing their knowledge of the challenges faced by the industry and how to build successful management and leadership within it.

Working alongside fellow health professionals, students will cover a wide range of exciting and cutting-edge topics including health economics, public and global health, the role of research in healthcare, an introduction to healthcare management and much more.

Students will also have the opportunity to develop a focused piece of independent research into a global healthcare management issue that is of personal interest to them.

Meigan Oxley, Head of Health for University of Essex Online, said: “Our new health programmes will be the first health additions to our undergraduate courses offered by University of Essex Online. They will also complement our wide portfolio of postgraduate health courses. To have a programme where a student can start their learning journey with the CertHE in Healthcare Management and progress all the way to our MSc International Healthcare Management qualification is very exciting for us. By studying these two career-focused fields students will gain an understanding of the challenges faced by healthcare professionals whilst also gaining management skills that will equip them to progress their career to the next level.”

The first intake for this programme will be in January 2019, with more planned at regular intervals throughout the year.

Students at University of Essex Online study entirely online using a virtual learning platform, receiving high-quality resources and support from experienced tutors. This allows students around the world to discuss and debate key issues within their disciplines, discover specialised areas/or applications of theories and build working and social relationships with classmates.

Upon completion of their online BSc (Hons) Healthcare Management or MSc International Healthcare Management, graduates will be invited to attend a graduation ceremony at the University of Essex campus in Colchester.
