European Public Health

With Covid-19 (better known as the Corona virus) spreading around the world, it is clearer than ever before that a virus doesn't stop at borders. Do local, national and international governments work together in prevention and extermination of the virus? As the bachelor's in European Public Health (EPH) is about preventing disease and promoting healthy lifestyles for all Europeans with clear European policy, that's a question you could be discussing with your fellow EPH students!

EPH is for those who are interested in health sciences, healthcare and wellness, but also in national and international politics, administration and management, policy and strategy, communications and media. 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.

  • EPH embraces a multidisciplinary approach: you look at public health through the eyes of a clinician, a legal expert and an epidemiologist
    Dimitri Eerens (Belgium), European Public Health
  • The programme's European angle is unique, as other public health programmes focus much more on the national system of that one particular country.
    Takumi Weegels (Dutch/Japanese), European Public Health
  • For me, the uniqueness of the bachelor's in European Public Health lies mainly with the European context included in the curriculum
    Roubitha David (France), European Public Health
  • Living and studying abroad is a completely different experience than just travelling: it makes me a more independent and a stronger person than I was before
    Natalia Wasowska, European Public Health
