The tutor I saw there seemed very approachable and helpful. I have firmed Huddersfield uni. Not sure about Manchester, have you went to the university before?

I agree, I saw quite a few people on the applicant day who are now doing pharmacy, there is a higher rate of progression to pharmacy at Huddersfield

I feel like Huddersfield would be a better option overall, as it better opportunities to do well as the course has a mixture of exams and coursework.

Hi @Syeda M

I think I saw another post from you regarding this query. In this post I will provide some insight into the Master of Public Health course at the University of Huddersfield.

This specialist course at the University of Huddersfield was designed in response to the demands presented by international and UK government policy and practice, public health and health promotion. It is aimed at both UK and international students and provides a truly global public health perspective. It will be of particular interest to those individuals and professionals who aspire to become leaders in and influence the public health agenda in the UK and overseas.
The course offers you the opportunity to develop and enhance your current knowledge of public health, strategic thinking and leadership skills, whilst examining the changing political landscape of public health environments both in the UK and internationally.

At the University of Huddersfield, you will study alongside a diverse range of students from both clinical and non-clinical backgrounds from the UK and overseas, bringing a richness to the course which will enhance your learning.
A range of innovative assessment approaches will be used which have been designed to prepare you to work in leadership roles within the public health field, using evidence-based practice.

At Huddersfield, you will be taught by a team of passionate academics who have a wealth of skills, expertise and professional credibility related to contemporary public health both in the UK and overseas. The course benefits from regular speakers from local and central UK government agencies such as Public Health England and the Department of Health.
Additional support will be provided for the enhancement of academic and curriculum skills such as academic writing skills, presentation skills and personal journal development.

Not only do future Public Health professionals graduate from this course, but it also provides a clear platform for those wishing to commence doctoral studies. Upon successful completion of this course at the University of Huddersfield, you could undertake work experience within Public Health through the Master of Public Health (Advanced Practitioner) route.


Here are some reasons to study a Master of Public Health at the University of Huddersfield:


1. This course is not just focused on academia, but also on developing a Public Health workforce of the future. Our teaching team is motivated and committed to ensuring you achieve your full potential.
