We are excited to announce that the curriculum of our MSc Public Health course has been awarded accreditation by the Agency for Public Health Education Accreditation (APHEA).

The University of Sunderland in London’s Senior Lecturer and Programme Manager for Postgraduate Healthcare and Nursing, Madhini Sivasubramanian, tells us more.

“This is a very prestigious honour. We could not be prouder of everyone in the department and across the University that put so much time and effort into making the MSc Public Health course what it is today.

APHEA is a leading organisation in the public health industry, aimed at improving the quality of education throughout Europe and the world.

They accredit, or officially recognise, higher education organisations like the University of Sunderland in London, for their high-quality teaching and research.

APHEA accreditation aims to support the continued improvement of education and training of people going into the public health workforce.

What that means for you is, when you come to study the MSc Public Health course with us, you can be certain you’re getting a high quality, career-focused education recognised by top employers.

The MSc Public Health course is for people who are already working or thinking about working, in areas of the industry, public health promotion, community development, primary care and health protection.

But there are many other areas you could go into with the degree including within the public, voluntary, independent and NGO sectors.

You’ll learn about health practice and research, sociology in the sector, epidemiology, management and much more.

Plus, you’ll have the opportunity to explore your interests with the dissertation – a structured assignment that includes your own research.

Whatever you want to do with your degree, our team of dedicated, expert academics will support you through every step of your journey.”

At the University of Sunderland in London, our focus is on helping you reach your career goals.
