Infectious disease control is a unique one-year multidisciplinary Master's programme given by Södertörns University in collaboration with the Swedish Institute for Infectious Disease Control (SMI). It is a sound preparation for future careers in infectious disease control e.g. within the environmental sector or public health agencies.
This programme has an earlier application period and is aimed at applicants who are non-EEA nationals. Application and tuition fees have been introduced for students with citizenship in countries outside the EU/EEA and Switzerland.
The programme is designed for students with a special interest in the spread and control of emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases. The emergence and re-emergence of major infectious diseases is a growing and potentially gigantic world problem, especially in developing countries with limited resources. A consequence of globalization is that events in one part of the world may rapidly impact on the local health status in multiple world locations.
This programme bridges medical, biological, and environmental aspects of infectious disease epidemiology. You will study infectious diseases both with national and local health perspectives and on how (inter) national strategies have effect on the individual level. Training in statistical data analysis and geographical information systems (GIS) prepares students for the epidemiology module covering the spread and control of infectious diseases in human populations. The 10-week individual project is presented at a final conference including students and lecturers involved in the programme.
Degree of Master of Science (60 credits) in Enviromental Sciences

The government has established two scholarship schemes due to the introduction of fees for students from outside of the EU/EEA/Switzerland.
The first scheme is aimed at students in the twelve countries with which Sweden has long-term development partnerships. These countries are: Bangladesh, Bolivia, Burkina Faso, Cambodia, Ethiopia, Kenya, Mali, Mozambique, Rwanda, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia.
Tuition fee waiver
The second scholarship scheme is aimed at particularly qualified students coming from countries outside the EU/EEA/Switzerland. Central funding is distributed to universities and university colleges, which will in turn award funding to individual students. These scholarships cover only tuition fees, which means that students will need to cover their own living costs.
Fee paying students that applied for a course or programme at Södertörn University can fill in the below application for a tuition fee waiver for the 2014/2015 academic year. The application deadline is 10 March 2014. The following documents must be sent along with your application:
