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.
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
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…
Congratulations to Dr Filippos Filippidis who has been appointed a Lecturer in Public Health in the Department of Public Health and Primary Care and School of Public Health at Imperial College London. We are currently advertising for a new Teaching Fellow to replace Filippidis in his current role.
