If you are working in settings where local circumstances impact on the health and well being of the population, our range of Public Health courses and units will help you gain understanding of how positive changes could influence Public Health. You can study Public Health with us full-time or through our flexible part-time modular learning experience. Alternatively you can study individual Public Health units.
Our range of Public Health courses is intended to meet the demands of individuals at different stages of their career and individual development. Given that the field of Public Health entails multi-agency involvement and partnerships, we welcome practitioners and professionals from a range of backgrounds, not necessarily in health. Students studying the MSc Public Health have come from backgrounds as doctors, teachers, nurses, midwives and community public health workers.
Our Public Health courses are linked with the Health and Wellbeing academic group at Bournemouth University and are designed to reflect local, national and international agenda's for the continuing professional development of the Public Health workforce. By the end of the course you can apply for student membership of The Royal Society for Public Health.
Each unit of study is normally delivered over 5 full days or 10 half days at Bournemouth University, Lansdowne campus, and will be assessed individually via a variety of different methods. In addition to this you are expected to study privately in order to successfully complete your chosen units/course of study.
The fees shown are for students enrolling in 2014/15.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.
A relevant first degree or evidence of development at degree level. Experience of public health working or similar work in a closely related field is normally required.
If you lack the formal academic qualifications needed to enter a postgraduate or post-experience degree, there are several alternative routes to follow - some based on experience. Contact the askBU Enquiry Service for more information.
If English is not your first language,
No work experience is required.
Fortunately enough I was able to find StudyPortals. Right from the start of the application to getting the confirmation of admission I was using StudyPortals.
