The Curriculum Validation of Master level public health programmes was introduced in September 2014 and replaced the existing accreditation eligibility criteria.
Curriculum validation operates both as a stand-alone quality mark for curricula and also as a formal prerequisite to begin the process of programme and institutional accreditation.
The validation process confirms that the curriculum and its contents adhere to European standards for a modern comprehensive degree offering through containing the basic structure and core content expected from programmes in public health.
The period covered by the validation is 6 years as part of accreditaiton processes and 4 years as a standalone award.
