The optional, 60-credit module of Professional Practice, additional to the award of MPH, will allow students to gain work experience within a related field and if taken could lead to an award of Master of Public Health (Professional Practice).
The MPH (Professional Practice) award is subject to availability and suitability of placements. Students are encouraged to find their own placements to build on their practical or research skills, which could be in the voluntary sector, local authority, or other suitable agreed work environment.
The placement is not guaranteed, nor is it a condition of gaining the award, as it will provide a further 60 credit points to the 180 required through the campus–based modules and dissertation.
*Entry to this module is very competitive and may require an interview at the application stage.
The master's degree is underpinned by internationally excellent/world-class research, (Research Excellence Framework 2014).
