Course content

About the course

This two-year course draws on the expertise of six European universities at the forefront of public health education: Andalusian School of Public Health (Granada, Spain – for Spanish speaking students), Jagiellonian University of Krakow (Poland), Maastricht University (Netherlands), National School of Public Health (Rennes, France), University of Rennes (France), University of Sheffield (UK).

In the first year, you’ll receive basic training in public health. You’ll study in Sheffield or in Granada, Spain. In the second year, you’ll specialise in an area of public health practice in the Netherlands, Spain, Poland or France. At the end of the course, you’ll receive two awards: a Master of Public Health from the university attended in Year 1 and a Master of Public Health from the university attended in Year 2.

Your career

We can help you develop the skills and knowledge you need to understand and improve health services: analytical skills, critical thinking and in-depth knowledge of your discipline. We offer postgraduate courses for health and social care professionals, managers and anyone planning a career in health services research.

Our graduates work in public health, the private sector, health services management, and health and social care, all over the world. They also go on to further public health training or academic research.

An international academic community

As one of the largest multi-disciplinary schools of public health and health services research in the UK, ScHARR is a rich academic community. You will be taught by world-leading experts in health economics, public health sciences, the sociology of health, health psychology, decision analysis, management sciences, epidemiology, medical statistics and information science. They include members of The Academy of Medical Sciences, the Royal Pharmaceutical Society and the Royal Society of Public Health. The 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF) rates us fourth in the UK for research power.

Our staff and students come from all over the world and offer international perspectives to all our courses.

Flexible study routes

We offer both traditional campus-based and online courses. Our high quality online courses are taught by the same expert academic staff who teach our courses in Sheffield and offer an alternative to coming to the UK.
