The Bachelor of International Public Health (BIPH) offers a unique fully online experience delivered through the ground-breaking PLuS Alliance partnership between UNSW Sydney, Arizona State University (ASU) and Kings College London.

BIPH students address global health issues in a dynamic online environment for joining a workforce that increasingly operates across cultures and borders.

The program has been designed to strengthen the international public health workforce and as a direct pathway into a public health career.

The BIPH prepares students for approaches to emerging global and public health issues, including basic medical sciences, public health surveillance, health promotion, communicable and non-communicable diseases, environmental health, and global health systems.

Students complete a digital portfolio throughout their program that provides an e-passport for their future career as well as undertaking a major capstone project in their final year with opportunity for an immersive field placement in a local or international organisation.
