International Festival of Public Health


Epidemiology Summer School

The Division of Population Health, Health Services Research and Primary Care in the School of Health Sciences, Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health at The University of Manchester is delighted to offer a four-week summer school in Epidemiology for students from our partner universities between Sunday 22 July 2018 and Friday 17 August 2018.

The purpose of this summer course is to provide self-motivated international students who are interested in epidemiology and public health with an in-depth introduction to the subject, in a world class learning environment that is enriched with British culture. Ranked 30th in the world, The University of Manchester has a high international standing with 25 Nobel Prize winners. We are particularly proud of our strengths in the Life Sciences and Medicine disciplines.

During the 4-week summer school, students will be taught in small groups by experts in the fields of evidence synthesis, biostatistics, health economics and health inequalities, and will be supported to work together on group tasks to develop their epidemiology skills. Moreover, students will have the opportunity to practice their presentation skills in an academic setting to their peers and Manchester academics. In addition to the academic programme, there will also be plenty of opportunities for social activities. These will include a welcome reception and a farewell celebration (involving Manchester academics and students), and trips to local attractions such as Tatton Park, Chester and Liverpool.

We are confident that the summer school programme will give every participant a fantastic experience that will have lasting impact for the rest of their studies and career.
