Career Outcomes

In public health, the focus is on populations and communities rather than individual patients. There are a number of career options in research, public, or government services, or voluntary organisations and non-governmental organisations. Possible future career paths include roles ranging from public health analysts, health services researchers, communicable disease control consultants, environmental epidemiologists, and health policy advisors.

As you progress through the programme, you’ll learn directly from public health experts who advise top policymakers and work to end outbreaks of infectious diseases as well as learn from other Public Health students. We encourage you to ask about career paths and explore your own interests. Public Health is a very large topic, with ample opportunities depending on your interests.
