How and why RSPH accredited modules from this programme

RSPH has accredited the 4 core modules from the Public Health MSc course. RSPH found the modules are relevant and current, using a wide range of delivery resources to support the learning objectives for each module.

A particular strength of the programme is the support provided for self-directed study. This provides students with not only the relevant knowledge, but helps learners with critical thinking and the development of transferable skills.

The assessments for this accreditation showed the contribution that the modules provide to the selected knowledge elements of frameworks such as the voluntary UK Public Health Register frameworks for Practitioners and Specialists, as well as the links to the RSPH Professional Practice Framework.
