Please note:

  • Optional Summer Term: A selection of electives is offered during the summer term each year which runs from the middle of November to the end of January.
  • Students from non-English speaking countries who have not previously completed a degree in Australia or other English speaking country are also required to take the core course PHCM9100 Academic Practice in their first semester.
  • Students taking the Master of International Public Health must take at least three electives from the designated international public health list of electives.
  • It is highly recommended that full-time students who are undertaking the 9044 MIPH/MHM start their program of study in Semester 1 to avoid needing to enrol in five core courses in a single semester.
