Study Health Policy at the University of Sydney

Applications are now open for commencement in 2019.


Postgraduate studies in Health Policy, taught in collaboration with the Menzies Centre for Health Policy, are designed to increase capacity and value of anyone working – or planning to work – in health services, policymaking, leadership or health policy research.  Graduates gain a comprehensive and practical understanding of health systems and policymaking, including policy analysis; health economics; health financing and budgets; power, politics and agenda setting; and the critical use of evidence.


This accelerated program is 1-year full-time, or equivalent part-time, and builds on your existing experience. Classes are taught in full-day workshops or online, making it ideal for people who are working or those that live outside the Sydney metropolitan area.


Students work closely with professionals in the public, private and non-government sectors to gain an understanding of roles in the health system, and build national and international professional networks. The program is offered at three award levels – graduate certificate, graduate diploma and master’s degree.
