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.
Flexible Public Health qualifications tailored to you
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.

Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).
Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.
All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
