About

One Health sits at the interface between human, animal and ecosystem health. As such, it is a fast-evolving subject area, well suited to preparing professionals looking to tackle the wide range of intractable and highly complex health challenges of the 21st Century. The One Health (Online Learning) program at The University of Edinburgh is suitable for a wide range of professionals, whose disciplinary backgrounds can include the health, biological, environmental and social sciences. This program is delivered fully online, making the most of the University’s pioneering, award-winning online learning environments.

The University of Edinburgh was the first UK University to address the need for One Health professional training by providing a dedicated Master’s program. This MSc program capitalises on the many strengths of the University of Edinburgh across multiple disciplines to deliver world-class teaching in One Health and provide the key training and skills required for a successful career in this emerging field. In the national Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey, we received a 92% student satisfaction rating, reflecting the hard work the team puts in to build and support the learning community who come together to teach and learn on this program.

Program Structure

The MSc One Health programme is delivered part-time by Online Learning (OL), over a maximum period of six years.

The program begins in September and is structured to allow progression via Certificate, Diploma and MSc; however, it is also possible to finish at the Certificate or Diploma level.

The Certificate is usually studied over 1-2 years, the Diploma 2-4 years and the full Masters can take from between 3-6 years to complete, depending on how much time you have to dedicate to studying per academic year.

The program’s flexibility is much appreciated by students, who can also opt to take time out for employment or family reasons.

The Certificate comprises four compulsory courses. Each 20-credit course is taught over a period of ten weeks, whilst the 10-credit courses are taught over a five-week period.

Academic Requirements

Applicants for graduate programs must have the equivalent of a bachelor’s degree with a minimum GPA equivalent to Upper Second Class on the UK Honour scale. Admitted applicants typically have an undergraduate GPA of or better on the UK Honour scale. No exam grade should be lower than 4.5 (European grade scale) or D (American grade scale).

Your GPA (Grade Point Average) is calculated using the grades that you received in each course, and is determined by the points assigned to each grade (e.g. for the US grading scale from A-F).

A UK 2:1 honours degree, or its international equivalent, in veterinary medicine, medicine, life/biological sciences, biomedical science, ecosystem health, environmental sciences, social science or economics.
