Students enrolled on these Master's programmes become members of the Global Health Academy community which encourages both intra- and inter-disciplinary engagement and communication.

The Global Health Academy initiative cuts across the traditional vertical health structures moving to novel integrated health systems training. Our aim is to promote a global community of practice. For example, in the cases of emerging zoonotic infections, staff and our student vets who are treating these animals will have the opportunity to discuss with medical, nursing and environmental health staff and students who are dealing with the human consequences of these infections. Students taking these courses find them rewarding in the opportunity they present to engage with professionals from industry, medicine, policy and research.
