In the first year, you’ll receive basic training in public health. You’ll study in Sheffield or in Granada, Spain. In the second year, you’ll specialise in an area of public health practice in Denmark, Spain, Poland or France. At the end of the course, you’ll receive two awards, a Master of Public Health from the university attended in Year 1 and a Master of Public Health from the university attended in Year 2.
