A UK 2:1 health undergraduate degree, or its international equivalent (eg. China – 80-85%; India – 60%; Nigeria – 3.5/Upper Second; N. America – 3.25; other requirements can be requested from the programme team), from a good university is required. For those with non-health related backgrounds or those who have been out of full-time education for some time, both academic qualifications and work experience will be considered. Supporting documentation including full academic transcripts, degree certificates, two academic references and English language certificate*, must be uploaded together with your application. You should have all this documentation ready before you start the process. If you do not upload these documents, this will delay the application process. The department does not hold any funding for the MPH programme and only a small percentage of applicants are awarded other scholarships annually (see Scholarships and Student Funding Services for information about funding opportunities). Please ensure that you have sufficient funding available to cover your studies before submitting an application.
