Be an advocate for health 

Public health is a broad discipline that aims to improve the health and wellbeing of communities and populations. Public health practitioners assess large-scale issues and come up with policy-based strategies to tackle them. 

Our graduate diploma is ideal for professionals looking to advance their career in the public health sector.

What will you do?

This qualification can be completed in one year of full-time study. You will:

  • complete four core courses and four electives
  • study the organisation and delivery of public health services
  • gain insight into relevant social, cultural, economic and environmental factors
  • explore policies and practices that support and improve health.

Where could it take you?

Graduates who meet entry requirements can progress to further study with the Master of Public Health. As a public health professional you might design and implement educational campaigns and programs. You could work with communities to manage local health problems. Perhaps you’ll keep the public informed during times of crisis.
