Overview

You will gain core skills and knowledge that are applicable for public health work in the UK and internationally. These include critically appraising evidence, analysing and interpreting data, research methods, and applying methods to protect health, prevent ill-health and improve health services. The programme is suitable for students from clinical and non-clinical backgrounds.

The Public Health programme offered at the University of Bristol   covers the principles and practice of public health, health improvement, health protection, epidemiology and statistics, research methods and evaluation, health economics, ethics and healthcare services. You will learn from people who practise public health, including colleagues from Public Health England, local government and the National Health Service, in addition to research-led teaching from multi-disciplinary experts.

Your dissertation - which can be based on either the ALSPAC cohort, a literature review, qualitative data or your own research topic - will take the form of a journal article and opens the possibility of publication. The programme covers many parts of the Faculty of Public Health's Diplomate Exam.
