Online ed-tech provider Interactive Pro and Brunel University London announced today the launch of three new postgraduate online programmes in public health.
Interactive Pro has been working with Brunel for several years as part of the university’s mission to expand online learning to provide more flexibility to its students. Since then, the platform has launched several online degrees while being responsible for their global marketing, student recruitment, digitisation and teaching. Interactive Pro has now recruited more than 1,000 students globally, with half originating from countries and territories outside the UK.
The collaboration between the two education experts will see the launch of three new postgraduate online public health programmes, including a Master of Public Health (MPH) and two MSc in Public Health and Behaviour Change and Global Public Health and Social Justice. All three programmes are accessible both part-time and full time with three different starting dates options, and provide an in-depth understanding of health policies, sociological implications and global health concerns.
Students will be expected to develop a multidisciplinary industry-relevant skillset to navigate the complexity of the changing contemporary global public health environment and the range of stakeholders involved. The programmes aim to prepare students for diverse career opportunities across public health and social care, including chief medical officer, epidemiologist and environmental scientist positions.
Commenting on the launch, Peter Reed, Managing Director at Interactive Pro, said: “We are very honored and happy to continue and increase our partnership with Brunel and adapt their academic offer to the current challenges. The pandemic showed us that distance learning can ensure the same great experience as in-person learning and it is Interactive Pro’s mission to make higher education more accessible to all students around the world.”
Dr Nana Anokye, Director of Division of Global Public Health at Brunel University London added: “This is an exciting time for Brunel. It is very important for us to make education more inclusive and extend our online offers across our different areas of expertise noting the contemporary challenges facing Global Public Health. The programmes provide multidisciplinary skills and promote active learning and a research-led approach to train future leaders in public health.”
