General Course Information
All courses are offered in intensive one-week blocks, from 8:30 am to 5:00pm. The courses are designed for adult learning and include a mixture of lectures, interactive discussions, group work and individual assignments. There are also pre-readings and homework assignments during the week. All participants receive course packs with reading materials.
There are two types of short courses available from the School of Public Health: Attendance and Competence. Please note that some courses only offer one type of certificate. Certificates of Attendance are awarded to those completing the full week. Those enrolled for a Certificate of Competence complete the one-week block and must also complete a take-home written assignment. Only those who pass receive a Certificate of Competence. Please note that no certificate will be awarded if the assignment is failed.
Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis. You are encouraged to apply earlier, particularly if you need visa support. To apply, email a letter of motivation and current CV to firstname.lastname@example.org your letter should specify if you are interested in the Attendance or Competency version of the course.
