Those taking Option 1 with more pressure at the outset, must take their first Elective in 2018. You can, however, take a module from another UWC department provided you can attend lecturers, and it is deemed relevant to Public Health, or one from UCT (University of Cape Town’s) Postgraduate Programme.
The Range and Mode of Electives
Your Electives are selected from a range of modules offered in the following ways:
- Distance learning (DL)
- Short Courses offered at Winter School (SC). MPH students can take an MPH Elective which is delivered only as Short Courses (SC) only at Winter School; if you select one of these, you must attend Winter School, complete all required reading and activities and then complete two assignments.
