About International Public Health at University of Liverpool

This programme equips graduates to provide leadership and technical support in public health in middle and low income countries. It covers the whole breadth of public and global health, including key disciplinary skills in epidemiology and social science and applied topics such as disease control and programme management.

Students can follow one of four pathways, which are distinguished by a defined combination of Core and Recommended modules and by a dissertation project on a topic appropriate to the pathway. Students have the opportunity of spending a period of seven-weeks outside the UK undertaking a client-based or student initiated dissertation project, which enables them to practise their problem solving skills and specialist knowledge in a real setting. The project is often commissioned by health ministries, non-governmental organisations or international health agencies in middle and low income countries.
