Our postgraduate Master of Public Health (MPH) is 100% online and part-time, so it’s perfect for busy health professionals looking to gain a recognised qualification from a top UK university while continuing to work.

Public health affects everyone and covers a vast range of topics, from health needs to health promotion. Our courses will provide you with a comprehensive understanding of the key concepts underlying public health. If you want to affect public health on a global scale or just equip yourself to make change on a local level, our MPH will give you a solid knowledge base and the skills needed to implement real and lasting change.

What levels do we offer?

We deliver the following postgraduate public health courses:

  • PG Cert Public Health: An introduction to modern public health, exploring contemporary issues facing population health, health needs, priority setting and public health promotion.
  • PG Dip Public Health: Building on the essential knowledge gained from previous units, the PG Dip Public Health provides a deeper understanding of public health by incorporating the key topic of epidemiology.
  • Master of Public Health: The final step in the journey towards a Master of Public Health, this course expands on previous topics while also allowing students to undertake a piece of independent research.

How is the online MPH taught?

Unlike a traditional university environment, our online Master of Public Health (MPH) course utilises a Virtual Learning Environment. The system is designed to track and manage the learning process in real-time and provides you with immediate access to your learning materials wherever you are.

We adopt an assignment-based approach to assessment instead of exams. Assessment for the MPH will be based on a combination of written assignments, engagement in online discussion forums and the completion of a dissertation based on an individual research project.
