ANUApply for the 2020 Master of Applied Epidemiology Program

No, it's not a cricket match! Do you want to be on the frontline addressing public health threats?  Do you want sound skills in epidemiology and to be able to use these to make a difference?  Do you want to add experience to your CV while you’re getting a degree?  If so, the MAE is for you.

The Master of Applied Epidemiology (MAE) Program is Australia’s long standing and globally recognised Field Epidemiology Training Program.  This is a two year research degree that emphases learning at work, from work and for work.  You will spend the majority of your time in a field placement (typically a government health department of other appropriate health organisations) conducting useful and important projects while supported via a tax-free scholarship of $50,000 per annum for your degree.


The MAE has been run by the National Centre for Epidemiology and Population Health at the Australian National University since 1991.  The  scholars before you have investigated over 300 outbreaks, established or evaluated multiple surveillance systems, conducted important projects into communicable and non-communicable disease and then gone on to hold senior positions in health in Australia or work with international organisations including the World Health Organization.  Seventeen per cent of graduates are Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander persons.
