APPLY

APPLICATIONS FOR 2022/23 ARE NOW CLOSED. The procedures described below are for 2023/24.

Here is a guide you should read before applying

Eligibility 

Applicants must meet minimum requirements to enrol in this Master’s programme:

  • Hold a Master’s degree or first year Master’s degree (M1, MSc) in epidemiology, biostatistics, public health, mathematics or related fields;
  • or successful completion of 4 years of study in epidemiology, biostatistics, public health, mathematics or related fields;
  • or hold a Bachelor’s in epidemiology, biostatistics, public health, mathematics or related fields;
  • Knowledge of English language (you may be asked proof of proficiency), at the very minimum B2 level.
  • Knowledge of (bio)statistics is appreciated.

The jury favours students who already hold a first-year Master’s degree in public health or related fields.

If you speak French, it may be interesting for you to also apply to the first-year Master of Public Health (itinéraire Recherche / Comparative Effectiveness Research), as we sometimes reject applications for the M2 that would be accepted in M1. Link here.

You do not meet those requirements? Click here to find out about another (short!) degree that we offer, called DU AMSRMA (Advanced Methods in Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses). 

Foreign students: whether you depend on the EEF procedure or not (see below), we highly recommend that you read those pages before applying:

The Master’s team cannot help you with accommodation or visa formalities. Make sure you start those procedures early, especially for accommodation.

This is the procedure for non European students living outside of Europe but living in one of the countries listed here: go on this link to know if you need to go through the EEF procedure. If your country is not listed, then apply directly with us (see below). Contact us at: admissions (@) mastercer . com ; if help is needed.

Campus France uses its own calendar for the “Etudes en France” main procedure. For the academic year 2023/24, applications will open early October 2022 and close late December 2022.
