2-year half-time day programme


The 2-year half-time day programme is oriented toward students who already have a master's degree in a biomedical domain, have some working experience, and want to improve their skills and knowledge of epidemiology. The 60 ECTS postgraduate programme is complementary to the 120 ECTS Master Epidemiology (MEPI) and is integrated within the structure and expertise of the existing MEPI. One of the main differences is that the postgraduate programme does not require writing a master thesis. It also allows for a more tailored programme.


The programme will improve your knowledge, skills and competencies to design and conduct epidemiological research addressing questions on etiology, prevention, screening, diagnosis, treatment or prognosis of disease (illness) or on enhancing or maintaining health. You will immediately learn to translate it into practice and policy to improve the health of people and populations.
