King's Research Consultancy (150x50)The Project

This is a desk-based project to compare the levels and learning outcomes of modules from King’s, the University of New South Wales (UNSW) and Arizona State University (ASU) in Public Health, Global Health and Social Medicine. The project will require the researcher to interrogate the information which is currently held by the Project Manager.

The key deliverable for this project will be a report highlighting what is comparable between King’s global / public health modules and programmes, and those on offer from PLuS partners ASU and UNSW.

No travel will be required for this project. The work can be completed remotely, but could also be based out of the International office (Strand campus) based on the candidate’s preferences.

The outcome for this piece of work will be an understanding of how existing modules might fit together to form a new joint undergraduate degree offering in public health, and where there are gaps.
