Course summary

Study public health on this extended degree for on-the-job experience and work placements with potential employers thanks to our strong links with health and social care providers. This public health degree starts with a foundation year to prepare you for degree-level study. You then study the same modules as our three-year course. The course provides the vital knowledge and experience that can be applied to any areas of public health practice, from community empowerment to statistical analysis and epidemiology to policy development. Our strong emphasis on employment-orientated knowledge and skills development means that graduates are ready to start work as public health practitioners. With the guidance of our research-active tutors, you will explore strategies to improve the UK's health, from social change and targeting inequalities to designing and implementing national campaigns. A structured work experience assignment in your final year will give you the opportunity to use the knowledge and skills you have developed in the workplace and make valuable professional contacts.

Assessment method

Students are assessed through a combination of course work, exams and practical assessment where relevant.

Some courses may also include 'practice' assignments, which help you monitor progress and do not count towards your final grade.
