Public Health (Block and Blend)

This course will challenge the way that you think about health. Using the block and blend teaching method, our academic staff will deliver a week of intensive teaching per module, giving you a thorough grounding in evidence-based public health and the research methods applied to international health priorities, before providing an overview of the online facilities available to support the programme. This is followed by weekly online study that builds towards your PG Certificate. During this time, you’ll be able to access live online sessions and receive specialist support from academic staff.
