We offer a range of postgraduate programs at Master, Graduate Diploma and Graduate Certificate levels. Our flagship Master of Public Health program includes a flexible Standard plan as well as specialised plans in Alcohol, Tobacco and Other Drugs, Global Health, Health Promotion and Disease Prevention, Indigenous Health, and Nutrition. You can also study postgraduate programs in Epidemiology and Biostatistics. View our sample study plans.
Most of our postgraduate courses can be studied externally (online).
We are the only Australian School of Public Health that is a member of the tropEd network, an international network of higher education institutions focussed on improving the management of health services for disadvantaged populations. Our postgraduate students may choose electives from courses offered by the tropEd network. Details of these courses are available on the tropEd website or by contacting us:
We offer short courses over the summer and winter breaks every year. You do not have to be enrolled in the School of Public Health to take these courses. Most are offered as short, intensive workshops, 4 to 7 days in length. Visit the School events calendar for more about our short courses.
You can be enrolled anywhere, at any level and may be eligible for a short summer scholarship with us. Our Summer research projects are a great way to get a taste of research or try out working with our research staff in our research environment.
Winter research projects are available in multiple disciplines across our School for between 4 to 6 weeks over the winter vacation period (from mid-June to mid-July). Participation is open to Undergraduate students from The University of Queensland, including honours, who have completed at least one year of study at the time of application and Masters by coursework students.
We offer a supportive and intensive research environment in which to undertake your Doctor of Philosophy or Master of Philosophy. We have over 100 Research Higher Degree students from a variety of backgrounds including epidemiology, medicine, dentistry, mathematics, psychology, sociology, veterinary science and other health sciences.
Graduating from the Bachelor of Health Sciences has allowed me to implement smoke-free policies in workplaces and improve the health of the community.
