Master Epidemiology at University of Antwerp

Epidemiology is the discipline which studies the occurrence of health-related events and conditions in populations, and attempts to make links to descriptive and/or influencing characteristics. It does not focus on diagnosis and treatment, but on the factors influencing the infection and on the way diseases spread. As a result, epidemiology is closely related to the field of public health.

 

Mix of theory and practice
During the first year you will gain a more in-depth knowledge on epidemiology, statistics and research methods. You will also be introduced to the practical side by attending seminars and visiting organisations in the field.

 

During the second year you will invest most of your time in your own research for your master’s thesis. You will become even more acquainted with the practical side by serving an internship. You will have the opportunity to spend time abroad for both thesis and internship.

 

Three tracks
Our aim is to equip you with a broad foundation for your work as an epidemiologist. However, you do have the chance to pursue your own, more specific interests through the three tracks we offer: Clinical Epidemiology, Epidemiology of Infectious Diseases and Environmental, Genetic and Chronic Epidemiology.

 

Start: September 2019

 

Application deadline:
EEA national: 15 April 2019
Non-EEA national: 15 February 2019

Why this university?

Let our students tell you why!

Blake Alexander Simmons (USA) - M.Sc. in Biology – Biodiversity: Conservation and Restoration
“This study programme can be considered as pretty international, since almost half of my fellow students are from abroad. I think it’s a great enrichment if you have so much different knowledge and many points of view around. This study experience will certainly make me a better biologist.”

Cyril France (Ghana) - M.Sc. in Development Evaluation and Management
“The study programme is well structured and followed by students from all over the world, which brings a lot of diversity in the classroom.”

Julia Port (Germany) – M.Sc. in Biomedical Sciences: Infectious and Tropical Diseases
“Compared to other European programmes on infectious and tropical diseases, UAntwerp offers courses on broader subject areas such as public health, healthcare, statistics and epidemiology.”

Juliana Pinheiro Maia (Brazil) - M.Sc. in Applied Economic Sciences: Business Administration
“The cases we cover are international and not only considered from a European point of view. The teaching level is very high and the system itself is tough, since there is only one exam at the end of each term.”

Phui San Cheong (Malaysia) – M.Sc. in Computer Science: Computer Networks and Distributed Systems
“The course is quite challenging. The Lecturers expect a lot from the students, so it’s important that you have the required academic background before starting your studies here.”

Slaviša Milovanovi? (Serbia) – M.Sc. in Physics
“UAntwerp has one of the most productive research groups and finest experts.”

Zeynep Savran (Turkey) – M.Sc. in Applied Economic Sciences: Economic Policy
“The thing I like the most in Belgium is how respectful people are for each other, regardless religion or political ideology, for instance. They have respect for diversity, I would say.”
