HERG Masters students placement programme

HERG has an established placement programme for students completing their Masters degrees. Students are provided with excellent working conditions and welcomed as valued members of our research group.  HERG has successfully supervised many MSc students completing their dissertations over the years, and several past students have subsequently been employed in the group.
Past students have come from MSc courses in Health Economics, Economic Modelling and Public Health and from the University of York, University of Sheffield, London School of Economics and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.
Projects are usually pre-defined by HERG based on ongoing work within the group and offered to students through the course leaders of the Masters Programmes with which HERG has established links. Some placement topics may also be advertised on the HERG website. We will consider topics suggested by students if they fit within the HERG programme of research. All projects are clearly specified prior to the placement and are manageable for a good student to complete in two-three months, usually over the summer.
