General requirements

  • Since our courses are conducted entirely online, they are accessible to both UK and international applicants.
  • Applicants will typically hold a first degree or equivalent (including international qualifications) in a science based subject and will have some evidence of public health study including epidemiology and/or statistics. Applicants will typically be working within Public Health or have an interest in Public Health (students will need to reflect on their learning and so being able to apply knowledge learnt into practice is required). Registered healthcare professionals without these recognised qualifications will be considered on an individual basis and a wide range of prior experience may be taken into account.
  • In some cases, applicants may be asked to submit a piece of work for assessment in order to confirm that they are able to work comfortably at postgraduate level, and demonstrate the requisite professional knowledge.
