Course content

This is a two-year dual degree programme provided by the Europubhealth Erasmus consortium of which the University of Sheffield is a member. The course draws on the expertise of eight European universities and, through a competitive application process, offers scholarships and self-funded places each year.

In your first year, you will study core competencies in public health at either the University of Sheffield, University
College Dublin, taught in English, or the University of Granada, taught in Spanish. In your second year, you will choose to specialise in a specific area of public health practice at a consortium member university in France, the Netherlands, Poland, Belgium or Spain, and also undertake a placement and dissertation. At the end of the first year, you will join other students and study on a 3 week integration module in Rennes.

Students who successfully complete the two-year programme will receive a Masters degree awarded by the university where the first year was studied and a Masters degree awarded by the university where the second year was studied.
