Health & Wellbeing at Glasgow
We have a strong community of postgraduate taught and research students working alongside world-renowned interdisciplinary scientists, social scientists, economists, statisticians and clinical investigators.
Our teaching is research-led and delivered by research-active staff. We offer flexible programme structures, allowing for breadth of course choice as well as specialisms that allow students to focus on their particular interests.
Our Institute of Health & Wellbeing is an interdisciplinary institute that crosses the College of Medical, Veterinary and Life Sciences and the College of Social Sciences. It's mission is to prevent disease, improve health and wellbeing, and reduce inequalities: locally, nationally and globally.
We are a global leader in research into population health and health inequalities. Our research brings together academic leaders from public health, medicine, epidemiology, psychology and health data science to address some of the world's greatest health challenges.
