Why this programme?
How do we prevent a virus (e.g. Corona, SARS) from becoming an epidemic? How do we formulate a policy on patients receiving treatments abroad? The role of the EU is only going to grow in the coming years, also in the healthcare sector. This affects the way we approach the themes within public health and healthcare. National policy is only effective if it’s also coordinated with international authorities.
European Public Health (EPH) is about preventing disease and promoting healthy lifestyles for all Europeans with clear European policy - because diseases, pathogens and other factors that influence health aren’t stopped by borders.
This programme is the only programme of its kind in Europe. It is also very internationally oriented. From the first day, you’re part of an international study environment in which you work with students from all over the world (at least 20 different nationalities).
Is European Public Health for you?

This programme is the perfect example of ‘the extra mile’ since we look beyond the Netherlands
