The Melbourne MPH teaches students to recognize and seek to understand the social determinants of health and disease, the molecular basis of disease in populations, and the influence of physical, social and cultural environments. Prime emphasis is placed on the prevention of disease and injury and the promotion of health and wellbeing. The program maintains a strong focus on the systems and services that society puts in place to effect these aims, their efficiency and cost-effectiveness, and their impact on equity and social justice. The Melbourne MPH orients students towards future careers as leaders in public health and health care. It is ideal for graduates with a record of academic achievement who gain satisfaction knowing that they are working to improve the lives of others and who aspire to leadership roles in public health. The program will appeal to those who want to move into the field of public health, as well as those who already work within a public health or health related field and are preparing for advancement in their organisation or field, or seeking to broaden their knowledge and skill set.

Most of our students specialise in one or more of the following key areas:

  • Ageing
  • Epidemiology & Biostatistics
  • Gender and Women’s Health
  • Global Health
  • Health Program Evaluation
  • Health Economics & Economic Evaluation
  • Indigenous Health
  • Sexual Health
  • Social Science

In addition students consolidate their specialist training by undertaking a capstone experience which synthesizes knowledge integration allowing students to apply knowledge gained in the course to real world scenarios resulting in effective outcomes. Options include:

  • A Research Project with an expert in their field, or
  • A Professional Practice placement with a recognised agency,
  • institution or community organisation concerned with health, or
  • Further elective subjects

Australian Fee Places

If you are not eligible to receive a CSP, you will automatically be considered for an AF place if you meet course entry requirements. AF places are not subsidised but you may be eligible for assistance with the FEE-HELP loan scheme. If this course is relevant to your current employment, you may be able to claim fees as a work-related tax deduction.

Course fees are calculated as if a student undertakes one year of full-time study. This is called 1 x EFTSL (Equivalent Full Time Study Load). If course duration is less than one year, or the student studies less than a full-time study load, fees are adjusted accordingly.

The indicative total course fee is based on typical subject enrolments and does not take into account any advanced standing for prior studies.

Fees are reviewed annually by the University and vary depending on subjects within the course.
