FAQ about EUCLID awards/degrees 

EUCLID has prepared this FAQ to answer the questions about the usefulness and recognition of the EUCLID MPH degree for Public Health U graduates. 

Public Health U graduates are eligible to obtain the EUCLID MPH without extra coursework and enroll in the online EUCLID Ph.D. in International Public Health. The points below give some background to EUCLID.

  1. EUCLID was established by an intergovernmental treaty in 2008. In December 2012, the United Nations Secretariat confirmed that EUCLID was recognized as accredited and, therefore, its graduates were eligible to use their EUCLID degrees within the UN system.

  2. EUCLID is one of very few treaty-based or multilateral universities whose status has been approved or vetted by the United Nations. However, it is important to note that despite the high degree of credibility consequent upon being an UN-recognized university established by intergovernmental treaty, this does not automatically provide degree accreditation under national laws. EUCLID has this status through its registration (headquarters agreement) in the Central African Republic (and The Gambia). Whenever needed, the permanent delegation of the Central African Republic to UNESCO has sent diplomatic notes to other permanent delegations to facilitate recognition and validation processes if such were needed. For instance, this was done successfully with Kenya in 2016.

  3. You can see more detailed information on EUCLID accreditation on two pages from the EUCLID website: and

  4. EUCLID was listed in the top 50 institutions in a major textbook published by Springer in 2016:

  5. EUCLID MBASD program was ranked number one of the world’s 17 best in 2016 (still current):

  6. Many current and past EUCLID students, many of whom are senior government officials in their respective governments or international organizations, have sent letters of appreciation that are kept on file. We are currently updating our alumni reference page, which is found here:



S. K. - NIGERIA - Consultant, Health Development
The modules have helped me in my work-related as a program officer implementing health project in a rural setting of eastern Kenya. I have created a network of friends that will last for a long time. This network will be useful in teaching career and share experience with new emerging information at global level. I will be able to access to latest research and emerging new developments and trends in the field of public health.
A. N. - CAMEROON - Team Leader, HIV Unit
I will utilize these skills in my public health practice to help me in looking at determinants of health from a wide perspective and also in my contribution in making evidence based public health policies....The knowledge and skills attained during the study of these modules will be of great use to me as a medical professional in public health and to my team of 24 officers who work under me in my current daily responsibilities.
Enrolling in this course has had a great impact on my ability to appraise and evaluate public health problems. I have learnt that research and planning are the bed rock of public health and besides the importance of combining research, healthcare professional and patient into a research team. I have used the knowledge gained in this course developed a health information search curriculum for the final year students of the School of Health Technology in my state. Also, I have been able to apply critical appraisal in solving public health interventions.
S. S. - INDIA - Surveillance Medical Officer, WHO
I will use the skills and expertise learnt from this MPH program to teach up-coming public health scientists with the desire to contribute to the poor and increasingly deteriorating public health situation in African countries where there is a paucity of well trained public health workers and most of whom cannot afford the high cost of public health training abroad.
D. O. - GAMBIA - Paediatrician, Medical Research Unit
I have been selected for the position of Nutrition Specialist with UNICEF. I must acknowledge the immense role PU-MMU played in enhancing my learning and skills. I am ever so grateful to all my tutors for guiding me throughout, and to the student support, helpdesk and IT teams for the backup support.
