Overview

Contemporary public health practice requires practitioners to be adaptable and flexible, with broad experience of a range of subject areas.

Our PHPD courses will equip you with:

  • the skills and knowledge to apply to public health concerns at local, national and international level;
  • the ability to apply relevant theory and scientific principles to practical situations;
  • the capability of meeting core-competencies in public health;
  • research skills such as epidemiology, biostatistics and qualitative research methods.

You can take our PHPD  Personal Professional Development (Public Health and Primary Care) course from The University of Manchester as part of a personal career development programme, or if you are considering a substantive degree in public health and have been out of education for some time.

Both distance and blended learning options are available to help you fit study around your other commitments.
