The world faces a growing list of public health challenges—from the impact of new technologies on public health management, the outbreaks of infectious diseases and the risks of legal drugs to environmental issues, nutritional problems and ageing populations—as well as a shortage of skilled public health workers.*
To address these challenges and more, organisations and communities need well-trained, experienced public health professionals who can plan and implement effective public health solutions.
Our Master of Public Health (MPH) programme, delivered 100% online, seeks to equip you with the critical thinking and decision making skills you need to advance your career in public health and become an agent of positive change.
Through this interdisciplinary programme, you can gain an understanding of global public health issues and explore theories and practices that will help you prepare to address the public health needs of your community and around the world.
Each of the Roehampton Online masters programmes has been designed to help you move forward in your life and follows the same basic structure.
Every online programme is made up of seven modules and a research project. Every module lasts 12 weeks. You then have a break of approximately two weeks before resuming your studies. Your research project is much like a dissertation, in which all previous leaning culminates in an academic research paper. Modules equate to 20 academic credits while your research project carries 40 credits – but you have 26 weeks to complete that part of your programme.

“It exposes you to the ideas of different countries, so it brings the world closer to you and makes you feel part of a learning community.”
“I have studied at a university in London and met others from different countries, but the impact was not as great as what I am experiencing with online learning. The interactive nature of learning at the University of Roehampton Online is a lot more effective, personal, and real.”
"Since joining the online MPH programme at the University of Roehampton, I have looked at health in a broader spectrum than before — especially in relation to the Socio-ecological factors affecting health."
“I think the thing that stood out more than anything for Roehampton, was that somebody took the time to talk to me and took me through the application process.”
If you already hold a bachelors degree (or equivalent) and have relevant work experience, you may be eligible for full admission into one of our programmes. Even if you don’t have a suitable bachelors degree, you may still be eligible if you have enough relevant professional experience. If so, you may be conditionally admitted. As long as you pass the first module, you’ll then be granted full admission.Request information to learn more about the admission requirements for your specific programme here: View Website
