Course content

This program covers public health in the international context and would emphasise a population and public health approach to disease control and health improvement across populations and countries, from low to high income, in particular geographic and cultural contexts, and especially those experiencing demographic, health socio-cultural and economic transitions. This program would ensure a balance between disease control and health promotion for infectious disease and under-nutrition, and conditions associated with development such as cardiovascular diseases, cancer and injury and will also focus on the major causes of ill-health and premature mortality, as well as determinants of health and quality of life. Very limited Summer Semester entry is available to domestic students as elective courses only are offered. Full information is available from the School of Population Health website www.sph.uq.edu.au

Fees for International students

Indicative annual fee: AUD$ 27360

Indicative annual fees are calculated on the basis of two full-time semesters only. Actual annual fees may vary in accordance with your choices of majors and electives and whether you study in Summer Semester. Tuition fees are indexed each year. The indexation rate is fixed 18 months in advance of a particular academic year thereby allowing you to plan your finances ahead of time. The University's intent is that fee rate increases will be kept to a minimum and that indexation rates will remain stable wherever possible. Since 2007 the indexation rate has remained at or less than 4%.
