European Public Health

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.

      Facebook changed its algorythm, and that could be the reason why you haven't heard from us for a while 😦.

      The good news is: you see more posts of family and friends in your News Feed and less posts from company pages. The bad news is: the FHML Facebook page is a company page.

      If you don't want to miss out on posts from a certain page, you can prioritize up to 30 pages whose posts you want to be shown at the top of your News Feed. The image below shows you the path to follow. If you really love us, prioritize us 😚!

      See you 👋
