FAQ

The main goal of the Public Health study programme is to promote the health of the population. The Berlin School of Public Health (BSPH) was founded by ASH Berlin, Charité and TU Berlin as a training and research platform in 2014. It is based on the international model of the Schools of Public Health, which carry out multidisciplinary research on the diverse aspects of health. Since 2016, the newly established consecutive MScPH study programme has been qualifying students for management positions in institutions, e.g. at municipal, state and federal authorities, and in the diverse fields of the health sciences. The study programme also provides the basis for commencing a doctorate.

Combining both science and practice, the areas of work and methods covered by the Public Health study programme focus on avoiding illnesses, extending life spans and promoting physical and mental health while considering the fair distribution and efficient use of available resources. Public Health deals with the structure of healthcare and the social conditions for preserving the health of the population.

Further information on the structure of the study programme can be found on the  website of the Berlin School of Public Health.

The study programme is a full-time programme. Subject to application, it can also be studied on a part-time basis (e.g. due to family obligations).

This question is relatively hard to answer as the number of applicants can change from year to year. At the present time, the chances of getting one of the 60 study places are good. Apart from the number of applications, other factors that can influence the likelihood of getting a study place include the “aptitude” of the applicants.

Providing the formal requirements are fulfilled (completed BA-StG with relevance to health), a preliminary selection is made based on grades. Selection interviews are then carried out with the approx. 130 remaining applicants at the end of August in which they are asked about their study motivation. Around 60 applicants will then be accepted (depending on the calculated capacity).
