University of New South Wales (UNSW) President and Vice Chancellor Professor Ian Jacobs, presented the honorary degree, said both organizations have common values and a shared commitment to creating a better world through improving healthcare.
“The new Master of Public Health (International) program reflects these shared goals and builds on our considerable mutual strengths in health and education. I look forward to growing these enduring links between Australia and India,” Professor Jacobs said.
Students enrolled in the Master of Public Health (International) will have access to advanced learning tools and technology with a fully comparable experience to face-to-face learning.
