King’s College London has a limited number of bursaries available for students wanting to study on their innovative MSc in Implementation and Improvement Science this September. The MSc in collaboration with St Georges and Kingston University is specifically designed for individuals who want to improve health services, equipping participants with the methodological and theoretical knowledge to bring about sustainable and large-scale change. The course is practical, yet informed by the latest academic research, and is taught by international experts in the field. The research element of the course provides an opportunity to conduct your own improvement or implementation project, or to evaluate an existing project.

Current students come from a variety of settings and backgrounds.

For home or international students wanting to start in September 2016, the MSc can be taken on a full or part-time basis. There are a limited number of bursaries available (reducing the Home / EU tuition fees from £9,000 to £7,000). Or enrol in the core module, Principles of Implementation and Improvement Science (the tuition fee for this standalone module is £2,200). The deadline for applying for both the MSc and standalone module is 31 August 2016.
