Why Study Master of Public Health with us?

This multidisciplinary course is likely to be attractive to both medical and non-medical graduates who are currently working in the broad field of public health and health improvement, and those interested in improving health and wellbeing in the population, preventing disease and reducing inequalities in health.

With the increasing emphasis on health protection, promotion and disease prevention, a variety of new career opportunities have been generated for people with a postgraduate qualification in public health.

Even if your academic background is not directly in public health we would encourage you to apply, particularly if you are working in the public health, social or community sectors in some capacity.

The course is supported by a range of high profile speakers who are all experts in their fields. Find out more about our Public Health speakers.
