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.

All degree courses are made up of modules – individual units of study on different topics. Some modules are compulsory; others can be chosen from a list of options. Our website has full details of your degree structures, module content, and how each module is assessed. The direct link to this course on our website, can be found at the bottom of this page.
Students are assessed through a combination of assessment methods depending on the modules chosen. You can view how each module is assessed within our 'What you will study' section. Each course has formal assessments which count towards your grade. Some courses may also include 'practice' assignments, which help you monitor progress and do not count towards your final grade.
