Why study Global Public Health?

Gain the knowledge and skills you need for a public health career worldwide. From epidemiological research to addiction and disease, policy-making to migration and mental health, this course covers the key concepts.

Already have an ARU degree? You may be eligible for our Alumni Scholarship for students starting postgraduate courses.

Across the globe, the increasing demand for healthcare alongside the reduction in funding for healthcare systems means there is an increased need for a trained, effective workforce of public health professionals.

Globally, the field of public health is ever-expanding, particularly in the context of increased migration, conflict, natural disasters, and infectious disease outbreaks.

Covid-19 and Ebola, health inequality, debate about conflict, vaccine hesitancy and the role of the state in health: public health is constantly in the news – and our MPH will equip you to meet these challenges.
