Applied Public Health

From TB to tapeworms, from sexual health to safety in the workplace, public health is a crucial issue in every society in the world and a hugely diverse science. If you're passionate about improving the quality of people's lives, then a career in public health is an opportunity for you to make a real difference to the health and wellbeing of an enormous number of people. Our course qualifies you to work as a public health practitioner, and is designed to give you a solid body of both theoretical and practical knowledge and experience which will help you make a seamless transition into the workplace.

Entry requirements

A good Honours degree, or equivalent qualification, in an appropriate subject. We also consider candidates with other relevant qualifications and individuals with a minimum of 3 years' work experience. Those without formal qualifications need to demonstrate relevant work experience and the ability to study at postgraduate level. International entry requirements: We accept the equivalent of the above from a recognised overseas qualification. English language requirements: Students must have competence in English language and we normally require grade C GCSE or an equivalent qualification. The most common English Language requirements for international students are IELTS 6.5 (with minimum 6.0 in all 4 components) or TOEFL internet based 87 (with at least 21 in listening and writing, 22 in speaking and 23 in reading). Middlesex also offers a pre-sessional course that ranges from 5-17 weeks, depending on your level of English. Successful completion of this course would meet English language entry requirements.

Course modules

Modules include: Applied epidemiology; challenges in global public health; environmental and public health; health economics; health promotion and health development; policy and public health strategy; research methodology and dissertation.

Assessment methods
