Course description

If you study this course, you’ll receive two masters degrees – one from each of the universities you study at.

The course draws on the expertise of six European universities. In your first year, you will study for a European public health masters degree in either Sheffield or Granada (Spain). In your second year, you will choose to specialise in a specific area of public health practice in France, the Netherlands, Poland or Spain. At the end of both years, you will meet fellow students that are studying in all the universities in the programme for a 3 week integration module in Rennes (France), to study and discuss your experiences of the course. 

All six universities involved in the European Masters Programme in Public Health provide high-quality and fully recognised academic training in public health.

Your career

Our public health masters graduates go on to work in very diverse areas, although many find work in a health or public health setting. Of particular note is that a significant percentage go on to undertake further doctoral/PhD study or to work in research or academic settings, which we feel reflects the quality of our research-led teaching in preparing and inspiring students.

Recent graduates from our public health course are now working in public health consultant roles, in data analysis positions, and project management. Students have also found excellent opportunities at the World Health Organisation (WHO), Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and Save the Children.

I study for two years, and my second year is at a different European institution. Next year I will be in Paris studying Environmental and Occupational Health at EHESP (École des Hautes Études en Santé publique). The course is so broad, it gives students space to develop their own interests within public health.
