Description

The Graduate Certificate in Clinical Epidemiology is an introductory program of particular relevance to those in public health. It allows students to gain some research skills and training relevant to their area of employment, whilst not necessitating immersion in study to the same depth as that required for the Graduate Diploma in Clinical Epidemiology.

Career Opportunities

Graduation from these programs helps to prepare for a career in education - Faculty appointments at tertiary institution; research - Research academic or research follow in clinical or public health focused research institutions; policy - Policy formulation, analysis and evaluation roles in government, private industry, or non-profit organisations or Public Health practice - at local or state health departments.

Study a Language

All domestic students can now enrol in an undergraduate Diploma in Languages alongside their main degree program. This diploma will enhance proficiency in another language or languages, and will increase international career opportunities. Subject to course availability, this additional program will generally add an extra year to studies, and students will graduate with a Diploma in Languages as well as their other degree. Please note that all language courses are held on campus (face to face) at Callaghan.

International students cannot enrol concurrently in the Diploma in Languages alongside their primary program unless they can complete both programs within the duration of their primary program CoE. For more information please contact the ESOS Student Compliance Unit ESOS@newcastle.edu.au.
