Admission requirements for Master Health Care Management

In order to be admitted to the master Health Care Management, you must have successfully completed a relevant university bachelor's or master's degree and be able to demonstrate this with a diploma from the relevant educational institution. In addition, you must be able to demonstrate proof of English proficiency (full-time programme) and Dutch (part-time programme) and demonstrate that you have the required mathematics level.

Prior education

Students must have successfully completed a bachelor's degree or a master's degree in a relevant field at a recognised university.

Those who have obtained a Dutch Bachelor or Master of Science degree in:

  • Medicine
  • Business administration
  • European Public Health, with at least one relevant course on healthcare management
  • Health Sciences, with at least one relevant course on healthcare management
  • Human Health and Life Sciences, with at least one relevant course on healthcare management
  • (Business) Economics, with at least one relevant course on healthcare management

Or those students with a bachelor’s or master’s degree obtained at a non-Dutch university related to one of the main disciplines:

All non-Dutch diplomas will be assessed by the admissions office and/or Nuffic. All Dutch and non-Dutch diplomas and applications will be assessed individually by the admissions committee, which will determine whether students are eligible for the master. 

Please note that students holding a bachelor's degree from a university of applied sciences do not qualify for the master's in Health Care Management and will not be accepted. We do offer a pre-master in Dutch.
