A career in public health offers diverse opportunities in a variety of settings.
Most of our students complete the course part-time while working in a wide variety of jobs and sectors, and many (eg General Practitioners (GPs), hospital doctors, health promotion staff, managers and researchers) take the course to consolidate their existing work as a researcher, or to help them gain access to that profession.
The MRes is often a stepping stone, providing skills, experience and a qualification that usually leads to a PhD.
UK intercalating students choose to study for an MRes if they are applying for a research foundation post or are looking ahead at the potential of pursuing a PhD in the future.
If you have any questions about how our course can benefit your career, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Some of our students use their experience and qualification to help them move into predominantly public health-related roles. You can see the occupations that some of our MPH students and graduates work in on the student ambassadors' page . You can also get in touch with them to ask questions about the course.
There are a range of resources offered by the University and the Faculty of Public Health , a membership organisation for public health professionals in the UK and around the world, to help you think about how a Master of Public Health can aid your career path.
