ACU will be launching the Master of Public Health in Melbourne in July 2016. To celebrate the launch, the University will be awarding ten scholarships worth $4000. The Master of Public Health Scholarship will be open to applicants for the July 2016 intake in Melbourne and will be based on academic and professional merit.
Applications for scholarship open 1 May and close 30 May 2016.
ACU’s MPH allows students to develop advanced and specialised knowledge across the discipline of public health, with an emphasis on evidence-based practice, rigorous intellectual inquiry, innovation and thought leadership, and effective communication and advocacy skills.
ACU’s MPH curriculum was designed around the Foundation Competencies for Master of Public Health Graduates in Australia and the requirements of the Australian Faculty of Public Health Medicine (for medical practitioners specialising in public health). Other international competency and practice standards and competency frameworks have also informed ACU’s curriculum design. Students may choose to complete their MPH through a Research Pathway (undertaking additional research training and completion of a minor thesis) or a Capstone Pathway (involving a capstone experience, such as a practice-based project). Elective units and a specialisation option are also available. Ten X $4,000 scholarships will be awarded to international students commencing the Master of Public Health in Melbourne in July 2016.
