Course content

This course will challenge the way that you think about health, using state-of-the-art public health principles and practice. Through the block and blend teaching method, academic staff will deliver a week’s worth of intensive teaching at the University per module, giving you a thorough grounding in evidence based public health and the research methods applied to international public health priorities.

The face-to-face (block) is followed by weekly online input (blend) and study that builds towards your PG Certificate. This involves live online sessions and work that you can schedule as it suits you.

The PG Certificate is a qualification in its own right, but it can also lead towards an MSc in Public Health. Six months further study in the UK and successful completion of relevant modules means that you can progress on to your dissertation, which leads to the award of MSc.

Information for international students

International applicants will be required to show a proficiency in English. An IELTS score of 6.0 (no element below 5.5) is proof of this.
