Stephen BaileyHealthcare – Executive Director, Qatar

The program content is very informative and rich. Additionally, the organization and the flow of the information on IHEED modules are logical and very much self-explanatory. I particularly enjoyed studying the climate change module.

Tarik Abu ElkhairTrauma Data Specialist, Qatar

The modules are very relevant to the public health issues globally so it is applied learning. As a global programme, it is exciting to meet other like minds in the public health field. It fits very well with the other duties around family, full time work, social life etc. Very well supported learning environment both by the fellow students as well as the lecturers. 1-1 support is always available on request especially when you are to resit for the exam/assignment.

The program is very flexible, it allows you to attend to family and work issues at the same time learn. It gives you time to plan your programs and read widely as the tutorials are only once a week. The program is very interactive and brings together people from diverse backgrounds, cultures & nationalities. The Tutor team is always available to assist students even on one to one basis. It is not loaded with excessive assignments, there is only one assignment at the end of each module.

We have eschewed exams in this programme in favour of more applied assessment. There are essays due in each of the six modules in the first year, in addition to shorter assignments, one being a statistical analysis of epidemiological data. The third semester is a 10 month research project where each student has the opportunity to undergo a significant piece of research on an area of their choosing, culminating in the submission of a 4,000 word journal article and delivery of a presentation to the programme directors.
