I would like to do a Master of Public Health. Which universities offer this degree?

January 18, 2013

A lot of universities offer a MPH in South Africa. However, the specialisation tracks might differ, as well as the delivery (teaching and/or research based). So it is important to see what options there are before deciding where to apply.

    • Dear Dzunisani, You would need to check the requirments directly with the university you would like to study as these might slightly differ. In general they will probably require a bachelor + honours degree in a health related field (with some work experience possibly). Regards, Annette
