Masters of some

This is really exciting $-$ well, at least for us… Our new Masters in Health Economics and Decision Sciences is up and running and applications are now open for the next academic year!

We’re updating the promotional material (which will also feature a rather embarrassing interview that I and others have filmed to describe the life-changing advantages people will experience if they come and study with us), so I’ll point to more (hilarious, but hopefully also helpful) bits as they become available.

In the meantime, we thought we’d include some ideas of what the syllabus might look like, for different students’ backgrounds (in brackets the departments/institutes within UCL already providing the module).
