As a University of Birmingham student, you will learn from world-leading experts, as well as your peers. From the outset you will be encouraged to become an independent and self-motivated learner. We want you to be challenged and will encourage you to think for yourself.
University of Birmingham Dubai offers unrivalled facilities in the region, with access to a self-contained campus that mirrors the UK experience. You will benefit from state-of-the-art facilities, classrooms and open learning spaces. Our friendly and welcoming community will create the perfect environment for multi-professional study.
Our highly regarded teaching on the Masters in Public Health course employs a mixture of lectures, small group tutorials, presentations, peer group learning and self-study.
You will have access to a comprehensive support system that will assist and encourage you, including personal tutors who can help with both academic and welfare issues.
Modules are assessed through a mixture of examination, assignment, computer-based problem solving, oral presentations and essays.
MPH students complete their Master's degree by also undertaking a research project and writing a 10,000 word dissertation. This provides an opportunity to pursue a specific area of public health in depth, and to demonstrate the knowledge and skills acquired during the taught part of the course. It is therefore undertaken only once the taught part of the course has been successfully completed.
