Master Epidemiology: Career

Epidemiologists are mainly employed in health policy, medical scientific research or education.

 

The epidemiologist’s field has greatly expanded over the last decades. Whereas epidemiologists mainly used to focus on research in preventive medicine and public health, their methodological expertise is increasingly being called upon nowadays.

 

The Master of Epidemiology is also a good base if you are interested in participating in clinical, scientific or applied genetic research as an applied clinical researcher. Are you drawn to the academic world? Then a PhD might be something for you. With a PhD, you can work at the university as a researcher and lecturer.

Master Epidemiology: Admission requirements

Applicants should hold a university-level Bachelor’s degree. This degree should be of an academic nature, as opposed to a technical or professional degree.

 

If you have an additional Master’s degree, you are eligible to apply.

 

A degree in Medicine, (Biomedical) Sciences or Public Health gives you a good base for the Master of Epidemiology. However, if you have another academic background and feel that you would benefit from more knowledge in epidemiology, statistics and research methods to strengthen your research, you might be the right candidate as well.

 

Since the programme is taught in English, candidates with a prior degree issued outside Belgium, the Netherlands or Luxembourg are required to demonstrate their proficiency in English. 

 

Students who are still completing their Bachelor’s degree are also encouraged to apply. They have to submit an official letter in English from their university confirming that they are expected to finalise their Bachelor’s studies at the end of the current academic year. They should also submit up-to-date authenticated transcripts with their results of the previous
years.
