Structure and Curriculum

Course content

Depending on your language skills, you may follow your first academic year in English at the University of Sheffield (UK), at the University College Dublin (Ireland), in Spanish at the University of Granada (Spain) or in French at the University of Liege (Belgium) to acquire core competencies in public health.

Your second academic year must be followed in a different country in line with your specialisation preferences and language skills. It may be either at Maastricht University in The Netherlands (in English), the Jagiellonian University in Poland (in English), the EHESP School of Public Health in Rennes (in English or in French), or at the University of Granada in Spain (in Spanish).

At the end of each academic year, all Europubhealth+ students participate in a joint Integration Module at the EHESP School of Public Health in Rennes, France (in English) for three weeks.

Combinations of study pathways on offer for the 2-year course

Students of the Europubhealth+ double-degree programme get to study in at least two different European countries of their choice.

Check out in detail the course content offered in each university to make sure you apply for the study pathway best matching your interests and career plans.

During the second year, all EPH+ students undertake an internship lasting from 2 to 6 months. This enables them to apply and refine the knowledge and operational skills acquired during their courses. It provides an opportunity to gain practical experience in the field of public health, to become proficient in research methodology and its practical application, to improve soft skills essential in a professional environment, and to gain initial experience in the public health sector. This internship prepares students for effective collaboration in various professional settings, enhancing their employability and success in the field of public health.

Joint Integration Module

Year 1 + Year 2

At the end of each academic year, a 3-ECTS joint Integration Module focusing on the development of cross-cutting competencies brings together first and second year students for three weeks on the campus of the Europubhealth+ Coordinating Institution in Rennes (France).
