Course summary

Overview

Do you care about promoting and protecting population health? Do you want to help individuals and communities improve their health and wellbeing? This course aims to give you the knowledge to help you understand the impact that financial, social and environmental circumstances have on the health of people.

We welcome students from a variety of vocational and professional backgrounds, and you will study in a supportive, enjoyable learning environment.

The course places a particular focus on the health of individuals, families and communities. This focus is given an effective foundation by a team of lecturers who have experience of working in the UK and international public health.

Course detail

Throughout the course you will be exposed to the issues that affect public health and wellbeing. You will work to identify the risk factors such as obesity, smoking and disease, which effect peoples’ health and learn how to minimise these risks.

You will also gain the essential knowledge and skills to plan, deliver and evaluate health promotion interventions helping ensure everyone has a chance to live long, fulfilling and healthy lives.

  • midwives
  • people in the health and fitness industry
  • people working with local authorities
  • sexual health workers

The course content has been developed with professional relevance in mind, and you will learn from highly skilled staff, many of whom conduct advanced research in their specialist areas. This will ensure that your period of study is both challenging and rewarding.
