Health beyond disciplinary borders.
Our place at UCL
UCL is ranked 6th in the world for public health research (ShanghaiRanking's Global Ranking of Academic Subjects 2023) and has a large and vibrant community of academics who are working in health of the public research. UCL Health of the Public will build on the existing excellence of the UCL Population and Lifelong Health Domain and support the development of new research communities and collaborations.
The School will support development of cross-disciplinary joint modules for undergraduates and postgraduates, offer Health of the Public modules to a broad range of students, and support core health of the public teaching across the University to allow more cross-sectoral influence into existing health focussed programmes. It will also link PhD programmes in the health of the public domain to improve research training and to create a new transdisciplinary health of the public cohort of PhD students.
