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.
