The ANU National Centre for Epidemiology & Population Health invites students who do not wish to enrol in a full program or degree to participate in courses offered in the Master of Public Health program as a short course participant for professional development. Studying in this way is a great way to update your knowledge and learn about aspects of population health at a postgraduate level without having to commit to enrolling in a degree program.
Professional short courses are ideally suited to those working in population health, medicine or related areas. They are suitable both for those who have no previous formal training or for those who would like to refresh their understanding. This could include:
- government and non-government policy-makers and advisors
- public health practitioners working in the field, including clinicians and other health workers
- people who require an understanding of public health concepts in their work
- people considering postgraduate studies in the public health area
Short course participants must prepare for, attend and participate in intensive classes; however, they do not complete any of the assessment items and will not receive a formal grade for the course. A Certificate of Attendance will be provided, but it is not possible to use the attendance at the course towards a degree program at ANU or any other university. If you wish to gain status (credit) for the course, you must apply as a non-award student or for the degree program; learn how to apply for non-award enrolment.
