Courses and Qualifications
Institutions around the UK provide a wide choice of courses relating to public health and health and wellbeing. These courses can usually be studied full-time or part-time, taken in the workplace (with the support of your employer), at colleges and universities, or by distance-learning at home in your spare time. Therefore, you should be able to find something that fits in with your life and learning needs. Even if you are living outside the UK, it may be possible to study for a qualification from a UK institution.
Before applying for any course you should read our Tips about education and training where you will find advice on important things you should consider. It often pays to think ahead, since some courses are very popular and you may be disappointed if there is not a place available. If in doubt, contact the institution that is providing the course for further information on how and when to apply.
