Based on the model of our highly successful 1 year Master in Public Health (MPH), the University of Sheffield is part of a consortium of European institutions offering an integrated 2 year Public Health training programme called Europubhealth+. This European Public Health Master's programme has been supported by the European Commission as an Erasmus Mundus Master’s degree since 2006 and is proud of its Erasmus Mundus badge of excellence. In 2016, the Executive Agency for Education, Audiovisual and Culture (EACEA) has renewed its financial support to the programme for five more years.

The institutions involved in the programme are counted amongst the foremost providers of Public Health education in Europe:

In addition to developing core competencies in public health (in their first year) and specialist training (in their second year), all students on the programme come together for two periods of joint study. At the end of Year 1, students attend a 4 week Global Public Health module in Rennes, France. At the end of Year 2, students reconvene in Rennes in order to discuss and present some of the results from their programme of study.

On successful completion of the programme, students receive two awards, a Master of Public Health from the University of Sheffield for their Year 1 studies and a Masters degree from the University attended in Year 2. Both official Masters degrees are completed by a Europubhealth+ certificate and a joint diploma supplement, detailing the chosen pathway, marks and grading scales.

Based on the experience and excellence of these six European institutions that provide high quality and fully recognised academic training in public health, Europubhealth offers real European added-value.
