The Postgraduate Certificate in Public Health course provides an introduction to modern public health. You will explore contemporary issues facing population health, develop skills in assessing health needs and priority setting, and understand the theory and evidence of promoting public health. The knowledge and skills you will develop will help to expand your sphere of influence in a current health role or provide a base from which to explore employment opportunities in a public health setting.
There are two entry routes available for this exciting course. The “Academic Entry Route” requires an undergraduate degree in a health-related field from an approved institution equivalent to a UK Honours degree or a relevant professional qualification. Students with an undergraduate degree in a non-health related field from an approved institution equivalent to a UK Honours degree plus relevant work experience will also be considered. The “Open Entry Route” requires at least 3 years' relevant work experience and an ability to study at postgraduate level, evidenced by work-based training or a CPD portfolio. IELTS (Academic) 6.5 or equivalent is also required if English is not a student’s first language. Applications will also be considered on an individual basis taking into account motivation for doing the course, prior work experience, CPD and other relevant qualifications.
