About Postgraduate Diploma Applied Health Economics (Online Delivery), PG Dip - at University of South Wales

Having a specialist knowledge in Health Economics is an increasingly important asset and extra responsibility of medical personnel. Run with our collaborative partner Diploma MSc, the online Postgraduate Diploma Applied Health Economics will enable health care professionals to be well equipped to elicit the maximum value from finite budgets.

It will help students understand why Health Economics has and should become integral to healthcare decision making as well as understanding the underlying principles, methodologies and processes associated with this established and growing international discipline. Unlike other courses, the Postgraduate Diploma Applied Health Economics covers the key disease area pertinent to Health Economics for healthcare decision making.

On completion of the Health Economics Diploma, you will be able to demonstrate a systematic understanding of the application of Health Economics in healthcare decision making; critically evaluate current research in Health Economics for healthcare decision making; apply a critical awareness of current issues in Health Economic evaluations and implement Health Economic evaluations in clinical practice scenarios.

Entry requirements

To secure your place on the course, applicants will typically hold a first degree or equivalent (including international qualifications) in a relevant professional healthcare field, such as a medical or nursing degree. Registered healthcare professionals without these recognised qualifications will be considered on an individual basis and a wide range of prior experience may be taken into account.

In some cases, applicants may be asked to submit a piece of work for assessment in order to confirm that they are able to work comfortably at postgraduate level, and demonstrate the requisite clinical and professional knowledge.

English Language Requirements

Proficiency in the English Language is also essential to completing our courses. If English is NOT your first language, we ask for proof of competency during the application process. We are able to accept an IELTS overall score of 6.0 (with a minimum of 5.5 for each band) or an equivalent qualification.
