The University of Liverpool’s online Master of Public Health (MPH) programme has been accredited by the Agency for Public Health Education Accreditation (APHEA), a globally recognised accrediting body for masters-level public health programmes.
APHEA is a partnership between five leading European public health associations to promote quality education for public health professionals worldwide, and accreditation means the online MPH programme meets international quality standards.
Accreditation provides Liverpool online MPH graduates with the opportunity to gain a degree that employers will recognise as independently assessed and one that provides the essential competencies required by public health professionals worldwide.
The accreditation process involved a rigorous assessment of the online MPH across seven criteria, and the assessment was based in part on feedback from current students and teaching staff.
“APHEA accreditation is important for our students. It means they can gain a degree that is internationally recognised and with globally transferable skills,” says Dr Francine Watkins, Director of MPH Programmes at the University.
“Our online MPH programme is essential for professionals working in health services, government agencies and NGOs. We currently have students from over 100 countries studying at postgraduate level, gaining public health skills and knowledge without needing to take time out from their jobs so they can apply their new knowledge immediately into their practice.”
The University’s online MPH students and graduates include professionals in developed and developing countries around the world working at the front line of public health delivery in areas including healthcare management, health improvement, prevention and health protection.
