Master Public Health (Full-time, Part-time) - Máster en - Máster en Salud Pública
A wider range of skills and expertise than can be covered in the standard MPH is often requested by employers and individuals who want to be knowledgeable about a wider range of topic areas.
This programme provides a broader version of the current MPH programme. To acquire and MPH (SEAL), students need to complete 170 credits of taught modules and complete a 60 credit dissertation, as opposed to the usual 120 credits of taught modules. By being formally assessed and accredited in more modules, the MPH (SEAL) allows students to demonstrate their wider competency range.
This programme is open to those with a good first degree in any subject of relevance to public health; this includes most biological sciences. Applications are also welcome from UK medical students who wish to intercalate. For the diploma, applications are also accepted from those with a relevant professional qualification or sufficient Public Health experience at the appropriate level without a primary degree, e.g. registered nurses. If you are unsure about your eligibility, please contact the course administrator.
Applications are considered as they are received throughout the year with places awarded to candidates meeting the entry requirements on a ‘first come, first served’ basis
Applications from overseas students need to be received by June to enable enough time for processing. Applications from UK students can be accepted until early August.
