Certificate courses in Epidemiology and Biostatistics

The School provides and welcomes people to attend and learn from the short courses below.

The School of Public Health and Primary Care offer courses and degrees across all areas of public health practice.  We offer all students grounding in professionally recognized competencies and in areas increasingly recognized as core to public health.  We are also offer courses in areas of special interest – including epidemiology, environmental health, health promotion, health management.  Many short courses will be offered in the Summer School.

Short courses are available either as stand alone opportunities or as a component part of certificate, diploma or degree programmes within the school. They aim to provide continuing education opportunities for those interested in health and healthcare.

Programme Objectives
