Departmental seminar series


The summer 2012 seminar series in the Department of Primary Care & Public Health, which started on Wednesday 25 May, was compiled by Felix Greaves. He has organised some very exciting speakers to visit the Department this term and explains the benefits of the seminars. The seminar series is important because it gives us access to some of the other fascinating work being done in our department, in other parts of Imperial and beyond. A real highlight of the series so far has been Professor Atun talking about the real challenges of global health funding, with wonderful examples fresh from his experiences operating at the highest levels at the Global Fund in Geneva”. All MPH students are welcome to attend the seminar series. The Autumn series will start in October.

MPH students trip to Geneva 2016

Staff from the WHO Collaborating Centre for Public Health Education and Training and twenty students from the Master of Public Health course at Imperial visited multiple UN and humanitarian agencies during their recent trip to Geneva, Switzerland. Over a three day period the group visited Médecins Sans Frontières, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, UN, WHO and Global Fund. Two students – Praise Izinyon and Rachael Williams – presented their mini-projects at the WHO followed by an excellent discussion with Blerta Maliqi, a technical officer for Family, Women’s and Children’s health.

Applying for the 2016-17 Imperial College MPH Programme

Thank you for your interest in the Imperial College MPH programme. The 2016 -17 MPH course starts in October 2016. Applications for entry opened in November 2015. I cannot tell you at this stage whether you will be eligible for the MPH because the decision is made by the Admissions Team when they have an opportunity to view your degree results and IELTS score (if relevant). We generally require a First Class or Upper Second Class degree from a good university, or a medical degree. A good personal statement about why you want to undertake the MPH course is essential. Previous public health experience is also helpful. You should take the opportunity to find out more about public health, for example, from the FPH website (www.fph.org.uk).

We have several international student societies at Imperial to provide students with some peer support away from their home country. Do check out the visa rules before you apply if you intend to stay in the UK after the MPH as these opportunities are now…
