You'll build on your previous education by broadening your knowledge in law, ethics, public health, data science and systems thinking. You'll also develop your communication, critical and analytical thinking, negotiation, project management, strategic development and collaborative skills.

Learn in a collaborative and interactive environment from the comfort of your own home. Lectures are delivered remotely in simulated lecture halls, supported by case studies, research and reflective activities in our virtual reality labs.
