    Today's society faces the challenge of providing high-quality, patient-centred, sustainable and affordable healthcare, in an environment of increased demand and scarce resources. The Health Informatics MSc at UCL aims to form future leaders who will address this challenge, transforming healthcare delivery through the use of information and communication technologies.

    Our graduates are professionals able to effectively engage with clinicians, managers, patients and policymakers, with the necessary skills and tools to harness healthcare information for improving clinical practice and service delivery. They possess the knowledge about healthcare problems, the concepts used to analyse them and the principles that govern the successful engineering, application and evaluation of solutions.

    Students undertake modules to the value of 180 credits.

    The programme consists of one core module (15 credits), seven optional modules (105 credits) and a research project (60 credits).

    A Postgraduate Diploma (120 credits, flexible study 2-5 years) is offered.

    A Postgraduate Certificate (60 credits, flexible study over a period of two years) is offered.

    Dissertation/report

    All MSc students undertake an independent research project, normally based at their place of work, which culminates in a piece of work written in the style of a journal article.

    Teaching and learning

    The programme is taught by 'blended learning', and therefore includes interactive online teaching and face-to-face lectures, seminars and workshops including substantial use of examples of real clinical systems. Assessment is through examination, critical evaluations, technical tasks, coursework and project reports, compulsory programming and database assignments, and the dissertation.


    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.


    program_requirements

    A minimum of an upper second-class Bachelor's degree in a relevant discipline from a UK university or an overseas qualification of an equivalent standard. Students who do not meet these requirements but have appropriate professional experience will also be considered. Students who have previously undertaken CPD may apply for accreditation of prior learning.
