Admission requirements for Master Health Care Management

To qualify for the master in Health Care Management, students must have obtained a university bachelor degree in a relevant field and evident thorough proficiency in English (full time programme) or Dutch (part time programme) and sufficient proficiency in mathematics.

  • Human Health and Life Sciences
  • Business Economics
  • Medicine

Or students with an (international) bachelor or master's degree obtained at a research-driven university related to one of the main disciplines, such to be determined by the Admission Board:

  • Health Sciences, with at least one course on healthcare management or health policy

Note that all non-Dutch diplomas will have to be assessed by the admissions office and/or Nuffic. All 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 degree from a university of applied sciences do not qualify for the master in Health Care Management and will not be accepted. We do offer a pre-master in Dutch.
