As the years have passed since my 2016 graduation from the Health and Society stream of my Masters of Public Health (MPH), I am forever grateful for the unique practical components offered by this course. The rich knowledge and skills I gained, undoubtedly prepared me for my current PhD journey and has been instrumental in my research assistant and project management roles at a community health organisation.

The best part of the MPH is that you will have the advantage of being taught by world-class leaders and academics, chose from an array of course streams offering a variety of electives providing you with the freedom to tailor your degree based upon your career interests, and above all the develop employability skills and attributes essential for any career in public health.

My advice to potential MPH students is to embrace your originality, exhaust all the resources available to you, and be open-minded. If you’re a visionary and passionate about health across the local, national, and/or global levels then I strongly recommend you pursue the MPH offered by The University of Melbourne. If you do, you’ll leave knowledgeable, highly skilled, and confident in positively changing the future of public health
