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 (

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…

Student led seminars

MPH and MSc in epidemiology students organise student-led seminars on Tuesday lunchtimes at St Mary’s. These seminars provide the students with the opportunity to share their expertise and experiences with one another and challenge some disciplinary perspectives outside of scheduled teaching hours.

The sessions so far have covered fascinating topics spanning perspectives on communicable disease control strategies, reflections on field work and policy advocacy experiences and perspectives on different disciplines. The Tuesday lunchtime sessions could also be used to host talks from interested faculty on an innovative research or intervention idea, as well as research and career development opportunities.
