Summer School

The School of Public Health and Community Medicine Graduate Summer School offers a series of intensive workshops over a period of several days, which can be taken as part of a postgraduate degree or as standalone non-degree courses. The workshop is followed by coursework (online only) to be completed over two-and-a-half months for those participants who are doing the workshops for coursework credit. The summer school is designed for a range of people:

  • Postgraduate students from the School wishing to take courses during the summer term
  • Domestic students wishing to commence their degree in the summer term
  • Postgraduate students from other faculties or other universities wishing to take electives for credit
  • Health practitioners wishing to increase their professional standing
  • People doing a course out of interest and not for assessment purposes

Applicants who wish to participate in the workshops as non-assessable professional development activities can register for individual courses through the registration and payment links listed under 'Non-Students'.
