Course description

Master of Public Health MPH

It is an essential programme if you are working in any area of public health: governmental organisations; health services management; policy and planning; housing; transport; or for community groups and NGOs. Public health aims to tackle the wider determinants of health, and as a multidisciplinary subject, our students come from a wide variety of backgrounds, including medicine, nursing, pharmacy, occupational therapy, health services, health service management, environmental health and graduates with a background in the natural sciences, social sciences or humanities subjects.

With its modular format and open learning facilities the programme can be studied to Postgraduate Certificate, Postgraduate Diploma or Masters levels within the University. You can also study with other institutions by using the Credit Accumulation and Transfer Scheme (CATS).

The MPH provides a solid foundation for public health research and practice in a variety of public, NGO, and international settings. With the knowledge and skills this programme will give you, you'll be able to put public health principles into effect in a variety of settings including research, practice, policy and at the interface of applied research.

This course is also available as a part-time over a period of 24 to 36 months
