An advanced qualification designed to equip busy health professionals with a recognised qualification from a top UK university. Students build upon the essential knowledge gained from units within the Postgraduate Certificate in Public Health and explore core epidemiological concepts of the measurement of disease and the interpretation of population level health information. Graduates can pursue a rewarding career in many areas, or progress on to study for a full Master of Public Health.
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.
