Course Introduction

Choose Public Health at UEL to learn about: The factors that impact on the health and wellbeing of populations. Emerging and persistent health issues. Exploring and calculating patterns and measurements of health and disease, and gaining insight into, and critiquing, health policies nationally and internationally. In addition, come to UEL if you want: A high level of learning support at level 1 aimed at improving the level of your success in levels 2 and 3. Our 'Personal and Professional Skills' module at level 1 will support your learning needs and the management of a personal development profile is central to this process. This will allow you to manage your learning needs and register your personal success. This will build into a complete learning profile over your programme and will be useful to an employer to demonstrate your success. A programme which allows a wide range of module selection. Even though you have selected a Public Health Programme you can still select a management module. It is also possible to combine the core modules from two pathways, such as Public Health and Health Promotion, to create a joint degree programme. A strong theme throughout your programme of research.
