This unit gives students the opportunity to undertake a special project (a research project or a field placement) in their area of interest in international public health . Students may research their chosen topic or analyse data already collected, then write a report, usually about 2000 words. Alternatively, students may choose to undertake a placement with an international aid agency or with relevant sections of health services overseas or in Australia and then write a report about it. Students arrange with an international public health academic to be their supervisor on a project and agree to expected deliverables. The supervisor provides guidance and assesses the report.
