The full-time Health Sciences Master’s is offered in English, with the exception of four courses specifically focused on the Dutch context. The programme has a workload of 60 EC.
The full-time schedule starts with five courses, some of which must be completed before you start your internship. The full-time course schedule includes:
Two eight-week, part-time courses in September and October.
Two eight-week, part-time courses in November and December.
One four-week, full-time course starting in January.
This schedule, known as 8-8-4, represents a full workload of five courses of 6 EC each.
In February, after meeting the course requirements for specialisation, you will start your five-month internship (27 ECTS), which is taken together with a scientific writing course (3 ECTS).
Depending on your specialisation, some specific courses are required. Additionally, you have a choice of elective courses. Electives enable you to deepen your understanding of a specific field or area. They consist of both theoretical and practical aspects of health science research.
The start date of this programme is September 1st.
