European Public Health

Study public health and healthcare in Europe.

Many of the most important determinants of health fall outside of the reach of medicine. Identifying and influencing these factors to protect and promote health is the goal of public health. European Public Health (EPH) starts by giving students a high-quality public health education at bachelor level. Learn all about the health status and healthcare systems of European countries, as well as the authorities, institutions, and laws of the European Union.

EPH is for those who are interested in sustainable public health and healthcare systems, but also in national and international politics, administration and management, policy and strategy, communication and media. You’ll learn to bridge the gap between public health 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.
