To take into account

· Who is it intended for?

Worldwide, there is a recognition that public health will be a priority for governments, health professionals, and academics in the future – and a UK public health masters course is recognised the world over. The University of Dundee's MPH course prepares students for research and management careers in a wide variety of medical and health-related disciplines. Previous students graduating with the MPH from Dundee have taken up management positions in public health practice, nursing, education, government, the World Health Organisation (WHO) and NGOs. Others have taken research positions within academic public health, general practice, veterinary medicine, dentistry, environmental health, and more. In addition to providing a solid foundation upon which to build a career, the MPH is also an ideal springboard for further postgraduate study.

· Requirements

To be eligible to register for the MPH, students should normally hold a first class or upper second class degree. Entry is normally restricted to graduates in medicine, dentistry, nursing and health-related sciences. Exceptionally, students are accepted without a first degree but in such instances they should have professional qualifications and hold senior posts.
