E-Learning Courses at International Health Sciences University( IHSU )



International health Sciences University offers e-learning courses, which allow students to study from home.

E-Learning at IHSU gives you a chance to study and learn at your own pace, in the comfort of your own home or office. All you need is a computer and Internet connection. E-Learning department is under the Institute of Health Policy and Management. We currently offer two online courses;

  • Master of Science in Public Health
  • Master of Science in Health Services Management.

Both courses are for two years and we have two intakes in a year.

On the launching day of the programme, you will get familiarized with our online learning platform. You will get an ihsu.ac.ug email account and learn how to log on to the IHSU online learning platform. You will be explained how to read the resources, and how to make and submit the assignments. Don’t feel intimidated. The programme is made for students like you and your computer knowledge will grow with each click of your mouse and keyboard. Moreover our ICT and E-Learning team will assist you in every way possible and offer alternative solutions when something is not going as expected.

Before beginning a module, students are given an Overview lecture introducing them to the module content. Each module takes a minimum of 6 – 7 weeks, and it is wrapped up by what we call a wrap up lecture. These lectures normally take place on a Saturday for the student’s convenience. Examinations are done at the University Campus two times in a year. Students need two compulsory weeks in May and two compulsory weeks in December. The first week is for on-campus face to face lectures and personal reading, and the second week is for the final examinations.
