"I wanted to build upon my professional experience and broaden my knowledge and skills within the field of health promotion and public health. I chose to study at Brunel due to the flexibility of the part time programme, course recognition by the Society of Health Promotion and Health Education Specialists and the expertise and reputation of the senior lecturers / reader.
The MSc has exceeded my expectations. The diverse range of modules has equipped me with a variety of skills directly transferable to the workplace. The opportunity to plan, implement and evaluate a health promotion intervention based on a comprehensive needs assessment has been paramount in knowing how to do things properly in future work projects - I now know what I didn’t know!"
"After completing a BSc in Biomedical Sciences, I was contemplating a career in public health/health promotion. Brunel University offered me the chance to study a multi-disciplinary postgraduate course in Health Promotion and Public Health.
I really enjoyed studying in an environment that was very multicultural, surrounded by a group of excellent teaching staff.
By studying this course I have developed expert knowledge of health and its determinants and hopefully I will be ready to pursue a career as a Health Promotion specialist."
"After completing a Health Visiting course in Athens I received a scholarship to go on to further study. The reputation and location of Brunel were key to me applying for an MSc in Health Promotion and Public Health at the university. I made the right choice – London is amazing and the course is inspiring!”
