Are you interested in health sciences, healthcare and wellness? But also in national and international politics, administration and management, policy and strategy, communications and media? The bachelor's programme in European Public Health (EPH) might be for you.
EPH is the only programme of its kind in Europe. In European Public Health, it’s about preventing disease and promoting healthy lifestyles for all Europeans with clear European policy.
You’ll learn to bridge the gap between health sciences and national and European public health policy. You’ll also develop the skills you need to work in governmental or healthcare-related organisations, or in EU or WHO units, in positions such as a policy advisor, health officer or prevention specialist.

In that case, you could attend an Experience Day. You will attend classes and experience what it is like to work together with others in a tutorial group. In addition, you will be given the opportunity to ask questions to students and staff.
