Career outcome for graduate students (MSc and PhD)

What happens after you graduate?

One year after our Master's and doctoral students graduate, the Faculty of Health conducts a survey to find out where our alumni end up being employed. This is completed annually.

 100% of our surveyed graduates say that their graduate experience was valuable to their career.

You need a master's now - undergraduate degrees are not enough. I wanted a career in health and working with older adults which is why I picked this program.

This program has helped me get the job I always wanted; without this degree I would not be doing what I am today.

MSc Public Health and Health Systems participant, Spring 2018

I really enjoyed that the School of Public Health Sciences was filled with grad students from various backgrounds. It allowed me to learn about various perspectives on the same topic. I also felt very supported by my supervisor during my time at the School.
