Master of Public Health

Become a leader in public health on this dynamic Masters in Public Health (MPH) programme and make a positive change in the world This course is for professionals from clinical and non-clinical backgrounds who aspire to solve public health problems. Students often want to move into a leadership or management role and find the content - which covers everything from planning evaluation studies to designing a public health programme - comprehensive and relevant. The Masters in Public Health programme will equip you with skills in research methods and theoretical knowledge in public health sciences, which you will need to lead and evaluate public health programmes. Our approach is non-clinical and informed by evidence-based practice. We explore how public health is mapped and measured, and use case studies to unpick how socio-economic and political forces influence the public health agenda. We also consider the unique ethical issues that arise within public health interventions. As a School we lead high-quality research and practice that advances public health, paying particular attention to the world's poorest populations. The School offers you the opportunity to interact and learn from the expertise of eminent academic staff, specialising in diverse topics.

Entry requirements

MPH: Applicants should hold a first or upper second-class honours degree or the equivalent from an international institution. Relevant employment experience in the health sector is taken into consideration. Applicants who have a lower second-class honours degree but have relevant employment experience in the health sector may be considered. For those students whose first language is not English, the following qualification is also required: IELTS: 7.0 overall with a minimum of 6.5 in each category Due to changes in the UKVI's list of SELTs we are no longer able to accept TOEFL as evidence of English language for students who require a CAS as of April 2014.

Course modules

From the basic concepts of epidemiology to the kinds of socio-economic conditions that influence health equality, the programme's core content gives you a strong foundation in public health theory and research methods. There are five core modules, two electives (optional) modules and a dissertation. The dissertation gives you an opportunity to design and carry out a major research project on a public health topic of your choice. Many students use the dissertation as an opportunity to apply their learning to a public health issue that is important to them. The full course content represents 180 credits which includes 60 credits for the dissertation.
