Integrate learning across the course

You will be successful if, as you plan your work you:

  • make links between your study and the relevant content of taught modules
  • bear in mind the broad public health and epidemiological relevance of the question you have set yourself
  • know in depth the specific context and evidence related to your study
  • identify relevant theories, concepts and statistical techniques that you will be introduced to and that you can use as academic underpinning for your dissertation
  • build up your knowledge about, and skills in, critical appraisal of policy, strategy and opinion papers, data sets from various sources and systematic reviews of published evidence.
