Each year will consist of three 11-week terms structured into 2 blocks of 5 weeks of study with a week in between for independent study and reflection.
Each 5 week-block equates to 10 credits. The structure is designed to be studied part-time, giving you time to reflect on your learning.
This timetable is consistent with other programmes within the Global Health Academy, to enable sharing of courses across related programmes.
