The Learning Experience at QMU
QMU has been the home to an innovative programme of learning, teaching and research on international health and development for over twenty years. It has an excellent reputation for producing hands-on graduates with both conceptual understanding and practical skills to work in the heath sector. The campus is equipped with first class IT facilities enabling students to access and interact with information from all over the world as well as learning in a highly supportive environment where experienced academic staff are available to teach and advise in the daily teaching structure.
Our Approach to Teaching
We recognise that IIHD students will come from a variety of educational backgrounds. Therefore intensive support is provided through study skills and access to the University’s Educational Resources Centre (ECR). Excellent resources are available in the Learning Resource Centre (LRC) through books, electronic journals and internet facilities.
Teaching and learning is student-centred and participatory with excellent resources as well as high-quality support for learning. At postgraduate level, you will come to us with a wealth of experience drawn from your academic and professional backgrounds. This will be used in class situations for group learning and case studies. Teaching and learning is carried out in class based sessions, group work, internet based learning, seminars as well as individual study.
