A new online Postgraduate Diploma in Global Health Research, the first of its kind at Oxford, will offer researchers and clinicians in low-income countries the opportunity to access Oxford’s world-leading teaching, removing the barrier of travel to drive equity in where health research happens.

Radcliffe Camera

Accepting its first students in October 2023, the postgraduate diploma is the University’s first academic qualification designed to be taken wholly online and will transform Oxford’s ability to reach and train researchers in the most challenging of settings. It aims to strengthen health workforces’ research capacity, regardless of location and context, to meet ongoing and emerging global health challenges and crises.

The course will be delivered remotely over four terms by international experts at the Centre for Tropical Medicine and Global Health in the Nuffield Department of Clinical Medicine, and will include pre-recorded interactive lectures, discussion forum tasks, live virtual classes, and weekly one-to-one tutorials.

Designed to support the careers of dedicated and ambitious health professionals and researchers across the globe and from every setting, it will teach students how to design, operate and report a high-quality health research study anywhere in the world and how to put findings into practice. In particular, enabling individuals facing the challenges of diseases of poverty and in the most resource-poor settings to develop scientific, management and leadership skills to tackle these diseases. 30% of course participants will be supported with fully funded scholarships.
