Europubhealth: European Masters Programme in Public Health

School of Health and Related Research, Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health

We tackle some of the world’s greatest health challenges to improve the health and care of people across the globe.

I love the University and Sheffield as a city. I did my undergraduate degree here and didn’t want to leave. Whilst what I learnt was related to public health, such as disease outbreak management, the problem solving skills can be applied to other areas in the future.”

Harriet Fidler, Master of Public Health
