What they're saying

Testimonial

Katie Hobill
Current student, Master of Public Health

"I chose to study the Master of Public Health for its variety and flexibility. The program covers a wide range of current health focus topics including environmental and global health, leadership, and disease prevention. Within the first semester we have already covered work in ethical consideration, research evaluation, and research methods.

And it has gone further than providing a taster of the units to come – the course has provided in-depth engagement and learning of core concepts needed in all areas of prospective health professions, complementing the diversity of careers this degree readies you for. I hope to progress in the direction of health leadership, but being passionate in all areas of health I enjoy the diverse focus this course offers. I highly recommend this course to aspiring health professionals because of the core content offered, covering current world health issues and the exceptional quality of teaching provided by health industry professionals."
