Taught by internationally renowned public health experts and epidemiologists, the Masters in Public Health (International Health) provides students with the theoretical knowledge of public health, the skills required for public health practice, including the skills to manage, initiate, implement and assess changes, and vital transferable research skills including quantitative and qualitative methods.
Aligned with our Masters of Public Health, this is a specific pathway to meet the needs of students wishing to study public health with an emphasis on international health issues.
With over 20 years’ experience of public health education we offer:
We are very competitively priced compared to similar courses in the field of Public Health, and the University of Nottingham offers a range of scholarships for International and EU students.
Through our comprehensive set of core modules you will gain skills that are transferable to public health practice in all contexts, and particularly in international settings. This includes skills in epidemiology, statistics, health economics, critical appraisal, health protection, sociology, health promotion, and applied public health techniques such as health needs assessment and evaluation of public health interventions.
Optional modules will offer the opportunity to gain more in depth skills in subjects of particular interest to you, including qualitative research methods and health data management.
The final dissertation will provide the opportunity to carry out an extended piece of research to address a real public health problem, integrating the skills gained throughout the course and well-supported by experienced researchers.
We run an internship scheme which offers students the opportunity to apply their new skills in a professional public health setting.
You will gain skills that are highly valued by a range of employers, including national health services, governmental and non-governmental organisations, academic institutions and industry.
