Revised NIHES Curriculum on the way

NIHES staff and faculty are currently working hard on preparing a revised curriculum structure for the NIHES Master Programmes. The revised curriculum will offer students a well aligned course architecture, with a coherent set of courses, that will provide a sound foundation in the core concepts of epidemiology and biostatistics.

The main focus and content of the programme will remain the same, but the core programme will comprise of fewer courses that will be longer and better integrated to reduce the assessment load and offer students more time to gain a deeper understanding of the material.

All students will start with the same core curriculum in the first semester. More flexibility has been created with the option for students to choose their specialization during the first semester. After this, depending on the students interest and needs for their research project of choice, specific elective courses may be chosen.

It is envisaged that the revised curriculum will be rolled out in 2021.
