Postgraduate public health qualifications at the University of Otago

Postgraduate Certificate in Public Health (PGCertPH)

A perfect place to start postgraduate study. Some students, particularly those already working in the health sector, may wish to obtain a postgraduate qualification in public health but do not wish to undertake a diploma or master's qualification. The postgraduate certificate provides such students with an appropriate qualification.

The structure of the programme allows you to undertake specific endorsed areas of study to complement your areas of interest or work expertise.
