Master of Public Health (MPH) Students
Why did you choose this MPH?
“I chose this MPH after my bachelor’s degree because the 1st year takes into account all the fields of public health and I was not ready to choose a speciality because I was not aware of all of them. Moreover as the MPH is an international track I thought that this experience would have been rewarding for me!”
Caroline Guerrisi, class 2010-2012
Why are you interested in public health?
“As a student, I always had a dream to serve poor and sick people. As Public health deals with different facets of determinants of health, I decided to join Bachelor degree in Public Health in my home country. After my undergraduate, I was working in the sector of community based child health programme. While working, I felt that I lack something which could be fulfilled by pursuing higher specialities. This was how I applied for the course.”
Raju PRAJAPATI, class 2010-2012
Why did you choose this MPH?
“I chose this MPH for several reasons: it is in English, with students from all over the world, in Paris… and above all because the courses seemed very interesting.”
What is your favourite EHESP memory?
“In this MPH, I like the fact that most of the people are very committed to what we are studying: people stay after class, trying to explain to each other, or talking about subjects that they like. There is a real commitment and solidarity that I haven’t experienced in my previous university.”

“My name is Elsie Mlinganiza. I come from Malawi, Africa. Before joining the Europubhealth program, I worked with the Malawi Ministry of Health as a District Nutritionist for 2 years, based at one of the government hospitals. During this time, I developed an interest in Public Health hence I applied for the Erasmus Mundus scholarship. I was one of the successful candidates selected to pursue the EPH program from 2009 to 2011. I chose the University of Sheffield-UK and EHESP School of public health-France pathway. I don’t regret this very good choice as I was taught by the most experienced lecturers who made our studying fun despite the many classes and exams we had to undergo in France.
During the last week of our studies in Rennes, EHESP organized a career day where a number of organizations came to showcase their activities. I met with ACF during this time. ACF was looking for expatriates to work as program managers in various missions across the world. My previous experience as a District Nutritionist plus the vast knowledge and skills gathered from the EPH program within the 2 years made me successful. I was sent to Sierra Leone where I worked as Nutrition and Health Program Manager in a very ambitious and challenging program of strengthening the capacities of local health staff in the management of acute malnutrition.
I am currently waiting to go back to Sierra Leone with ACF on a different mission to be based in Freetown starting on the 1st of September, 2013. I therefore thank the organizers of the career day that made me meet with my employers. All in all I thank the consortium of the Erasmus Mundus and the EPH for giving me the opportunity to experience the different cultures and improve on my career.”
