General information

The University of Copenhagen’s School of Global Health offers a three-week field course in global health and research methods. The course is a close collaboration with the Faculty of Medicine and Allied Sciences at the Rajarata University of Sri Lanka. If you are interested in increasing your knowledge on health research through fieldwork experiences, working in cross-disciplinary groups and with local university faculty members, this is the course for you.

The course aims at providing you with an understanding of health research methods, possibilities and challenges in a middle-income setting as Sri Lanka. You will be introduced to and gain a good understanding of significant health challenges in contextual urban, rural, private and government health systems settings.

Furthermore, you will gain a basic understanding of the broad variety of health research methods and designs, as applied by Sri Lankan and international researchers including clinical and epidemiological research, biological fields-sampling, GIS-mapping, community surveys and qualitative health research.


All students must cover costs concerning travel, travel insurance (mandatory for the entire course period), visa, vaccinations, food, and accommodation (organized by the course administration at a low rate in mid-range hotels, shared rooms). Students are required to ensure proper vaccinations and visa before travelling.

Apart from the expenses listed above, students must cover their own daily expenses. If these expenses are maintained at a minimum level, living and travel expenses during the course can be expected to amount to DKK 4.500 excluding the flight ticket.

Information about accommodation, travel arrangements and other practicalities is provided after acceptance to the course.
