This course is an internationally recognized qualification in Public Health. It is aimed at a wide range of people from both the UK and abroad, from NHS and non-NHS backgrounds including those in primary or secondary care, health authorities and primary care trusts, nursing and professions related to medicine, health promotion, health care research, health management and anyone wishing to develop a career in public health. During the course you will analyse practice and policy in health care, developing practical and critical skills – you will also gain a sound understanding of associated theories and will have the opportunity to develop your own special interests and embark on academic research.

Career choices encompass many disciplines including roles in public health, health promotion, health statistics, epidemiology, clinical governance, health care research, health technology assessment and public health nursing, where you will find that a Masters-level qualification is increasingly required. Many of our home students have gone on to work within public health departments in the UK and other related areas of health. International students have developed their careers in public health within their own countries of origin. Students have also gone on to work with the WHO, the UN and other international organizations.
