A public health degree can be taken at both the undergraduate and the postgraduate study level, with most degree programs lasting between one and three years of full time study. A public health degree is well suited to those students who wish to pursue a career directly in the field of health and medicine.

Public health degrees are designed to give students a better understanding of everyday health issues, and throughout the course students will study a variety of topics including health assessment, clinical science, exercise and health, mental health, sexual health, social care and drug use. Students will also learn how to encourage others to build a healthier life throughout the course.

At certain stages in the degree program, students will be given the option to specialise in their interested area of study. Common specialisations include environmental health, health for education, epidemiology, hygiene, health law and child health.
