A MPH is an internationally recognised qualification opening up many employment opportunities throughout the world.
The course equips students with the knowledge and skills base to pursue a career in public health or other health-related leadership roles.
The curriculum for the MPH at Queen’s is aligned very closely to the syllabus for the professional exams for the UK Faculty of Public Health.
The MPH is designed to introduce students to:
- The 'science' of public health practice: a robust, systematic and evidence-based approach to define and understand population health issues and problems.
- The 'art' of public health practice - interpersonal and organisational skills to work in partnership with others; influence decisions; support implementation of policy, programmes or interventions; and effect real change. It aims to identify optimal solutions for health gain within available resources.

A 2.1 Honours degree or equivalent qualification acceptable to the University in a health-related subject is required. Evidence of equivalent professional qualifications (MBBS, BDS or BVSc) or experience will be considered on an individual basis.
Intercalating Medical and Dental Applicants
Intercalating medical and dental students within QUB will be considered if they have successfully completed the third year of their course at first attempt and achieved at least an Upper Second Class Honours degree standard. Intercalating applicants should also ensure they have permission to intercalate from either the Director of Medical Education or Dentistry as appropriate.
An external medical or dental student wishing to intercalate must have successfully completed all assessments at first attempt for the year in which they are applying. External intercalating applicants should also ensure they have the permission of the Head of Undergraduate Medical/Dental Education or equivalent from their home University.
• Applicants who are currently studying an overseas Medical (e.g. MBBS or MbChB) or Dental degree at a recognised institution acceptable to the University, may apply.
