Public Health

Public Health aims to improve the health of populations across the world through the study of health promotion, risk prevention, policy development, leadership, and the design and analysis of evidence.

Public Health at Oxford Brookes provides research-led and student-centred teaching, with a focus on global health. We offer postgraduate and research students the opportunity to be taught in a supportive community by staff who are active in research in Public Health, research methods and teaching practice. Our graduates work in a range of health-related professions in low-, middle- and high-income countries.


We offer two MPH courses

The Public Health course is taught on campus and is ideal if you are seeking to broaden your knowledge and skillset, or are preparing for advancement in your field or career.

The Global Public Health Leadership course is taught through distance learning and prepares you for key roles in the applied promotion and implementation of public health projects. It will help you develop as a public health leader in the global context of practice.
