Online Public Health Courses at the People's Open Access Edu Initiative


Really interesting organisation providing reasonably priced/cheap online public health courses. They are not a university but they are accredited by the UK Royal Society for Public Health. As a fellow of the RSPH I'm really pleased that they are supporting this but I heard of this through a LinkedIn Group and not them!

If you have taken one or more of their modules I'd love to know what you thought of them in the comments.

Enrolling in a Peoples-uni module/unit costs £30 each - after 6 modules/units you are eligible for a Diploma and may be eligible to take the Dissertation for the Masters degree (which is equivalent to 3 modules/units) so the total cost of a Peoples-uni Diploma is £180 and Masters is £270.
