This programme aims to equip students with the knowledge and skills to enable them to address relevant issues with public health academics, researchers and practitioners. It covers the whole breadth of public health, encompassing low, middle- and high-income countries. According to the World Health Organization each year, 15 million deaths are attributed to non-communicable diseases including cardiovascular diseases (like heart attacks and strokes), cancers, chronic respiratory diseases (such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and asthma) and diabetes. The need to consider the wider determinants of health to support people to stay well and healthy is the essence of public health. The Master of Public Health programme is designed for graduates or experienced health professionals who want to develop their knowledge of public health. The programme will be delivered through experienced expert academic staff with a focus on professional practice, equipping them for a successful career in the public or private sector, or a role as an academic researcher.
