Entry requirements

Candidates should normally have a good first degree or equivalent and be working, or hope to work, within any area of the public health arena. They do not necessarily need a professional qualification for access to the course, but do need to demonstrate a strong interest in public health and local health improvement. Candidates with a third class honours, or ordinary (pass) degree plus a minimum of one year of relevant post-graduate work experience, will be considered on an individual basis. Candidates who do not have a first degree, but have relevant work experience, may be able to gain access to the course by completing a Non Graduate Entry Profile demonstrating, and reflecting on, achievement of generic undergraduate learning outcomes through experiential learning. If English is not your first language you will be expected to demonstrate a certificated level of proficiency of at least IELTS 6.5 (Academic level- with no individual score being lower than 5.5) or equivalent English Language qualification, as recognised by Anglia Ruskin University. Our published entry requirements are a guide only and our decision will be based on your overall suitability for the course as well as whether you meet the minimum entry requirements. Other equivalent qualifications may be accepted for entry to this course, please email admissions-fms@anglia.ac.uk for further information.
