How to apply

2018-19 Application Deadline

We are now open to applications for admission in October 2018.

All applications received by the deadline on Monday 8th January 2018 will automatically be considered for all relevant competitive University funding opportunities, including the Clarendon Fund, Medical Research Council funding, and various College funds.  Please refer to the Graduate Admissions and Funding and Costs webpage for this course for further details relating to funded scholarships and divisional funding opportunities.

entry requirements for admission:

Full details of the entry requirements for admission to the MSc in Global Health Science are available on the Graduate Admissions and Funding webpage for this course.

Applying to the University

All applications for graduate study are processed on the University's Student Management System. See Applying for graduate study for full details.

You are advised to refer to the Application Guide before making an application. An application fee of £75 is required prior to uploading your complete application.

Waivers for the graduate application fee are available for this course for applicants who meet the academic entry requirements and are ordinarily resident in a country defined by the World Bank Country Groups for low and middle income economies. If you meet the academic entry requirements but are not ordinarily resident in one of these countries, and would not be able to submit an application on cost grounds, you can submit a statement of need to have the £75 graduate application fee waived. 

To apply for a waiver, please submit a waiver request form. 

Waiver requests must be submitted by 1 December 2017. Decisions will be communicated on a rolling basis approximately 1 week after the request is submitted. If you have already started an application before being granted a fee waiver, the application type can be easily changed to reflect this, so you can safely begin work on an application before applying for a waiver. 

Information from the fee waiver application will not be seen by the admissions committee and will not be used in admissions decisions.

The Department recognises that some applicants may still be studying and may not yet have their full academic and/or English language test results. Please do apply for a fee waiver if you meet the above criteria.

What happens after I apply?

The MSc in Global Health Science and Epidemiology is an extremely popular course and is usually over-subscribed. All applications are carefully considered by an Admissions Panel comprised of at least two members of the academic team. Admissions decisions are notified to applicants in writing. Regrettably, it is not possible for the administrative team to discuss individual application decisions by phone.

The University provides an outline of the process for the admissions decisions here for your information.
