Course content

Our MPH programme is delivered fully online providing you with a flexible learning solution that allows you to fit your studies around your career and personal life. The MPH online covers the key topics required for professional accreditation in public health that are relevant to both international and UK students.

Our MPH online is taught by experienced tutors from a broad range of disciplines including epidemiology, statistics, qualitative research, public health, health informatics, health economics, nutrition and clinical trials. Tutors include both renowned academics and expert practitioners. Online learning is enriched by interaction with other students from varied clinical, non-clinical, professional and cultural backgrounds.

Our MPH online offers a substantial range of elective options to allow you to tailor your learning to your needs and includes a flexible project component enabling you to gain experience oriented towards either the development of a professional career in public health practice or the pursuit of an academic career.

Public health is a very broad area of activity and we welcome student applications from a broad range of backgrounds and experiences. Although some previous exposure to the broader aspects of health is required, undertaking this MPH online does not require any particular clinical or specialist knowledge. Students from a broad range of backgrounds have successfully completed our MPH programme. These have included: medical students, nurses, political scientists, policy makers, healthcare managers, physicians, surgeons, dentists, psychologists, microbiologists, nutritionists, social workers, health educationalists, biologists, pharmacologists, biomedical scientists and engineers.

The MPH online programme is available on a part-time study basis with completion over two years.
