"Studying Public Health at Lund University means that I am in an international environment with peers from 20 different nationalities in a fairly small class of about 45 students. As a result, class discussions are current and dynamic. We often work in teams as we would in a real world setting. This programme will undoubtedly lay a strong foundation for my future career in public health – I would not have had this international opportunity if I did not attend the MPH-programme at Lund University”

“There are many excellent international research projects with public health relevance based in Lund and Malmö, including at the Lund University Diabetes Center - which is a leading research center worldwide in diabetes. Since many of these projects are taking place just right here, and within reach, you have a lot of opportunities for your internship and Master’s thesis.”
