A Diploma Award requires successful completion of 8 modules, at the master's academic level, but not the dissertation module. A Certificate Award requires successful completion of 4 modules at the master's academic level.

Students are eligible to apply for either the EUCLID MPH degree or the Public Health U Masters-level award, if they have already successfully passed two modules in the Public Health U program at the Masters academic level, AND have not failed any module (failing a module means not achieving a 50% mark after one submission plus two resubmissions).
2. Students wishing to study for a Diploma Award must also apply for the program under the same conditions.
3. Students who have failed a module may still be eligible to study for a Certificate Award.
