If you are a regular reader of the Peoples-uni Blog you may already be studying Public Health, working in Public Health or teaching it.

However, you may have stumbled across these pages while doing some late night surfing. Or you may know somebody who doesn't yet work in Public Health but has potential and may be a bit nervous about signing up to an expensive course of study.

One of the reasons for establishing the Peoples-uni Blog was to create a useful resource for our students, volunteers and readers.
