Health Sciences: International Public Health at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam

How can we control infectious diseases in the Netherlands and abroad?

 

What is the role of nutrition in chronic disorders like obesity or type 2 diabetes? What causes healthcare costs to rise?

If you want to master the skills needed to analyse complex health or healthcare issues, then the Health Sciences Master’s is for you.

 

The programme will enable you to contribute to the development and implementation of interventions that solve major health problems. You also have the unique chance to choose from five specialisations. This enables you to focus on a specific domain:

  •   Health Policy
  •   Infectious Disease & Public Health
  •   International Public Health
  •   Nutrition & Health
  •   Prevention & Public Health

Health Sciences: International Public Health

Contribute to the development and implementation of interventions that solve major health problems.

 

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.

Health Sciences: International Public Health

After completing the Health Sciences Master’s programme, you will be able to identify and collect health-related information from different sources and use this information to analyse health (care) problems.

 

You will be skilled at suggesting relevant interventions based on evidence from empirical epidemiologic population studies. You will also be able to communicate effectively with a variety of stakeholders in the field of Health Sciences. Finally, you will contribute to a multi- or interdisciplinary approach to health problems, health promotion and healthcare in a national or international context.

Health Sciences: International Public Health

I have an international degree

 

The Health Sciences programme is open to both Dutch and nternational Students. The Faculty’s Admission Board will decide upon your admission after having evaluated your complete online application.

 

In order to gain admission to the Health Sciences Master’s programme, you will need to have at least a Bachelor’s degree from an accredited research university including at least three full years of academic study amounting to a minimum of 180 ECTS or equivalent. We do not require a GRE or GMAT test score. A Bachelor's degree obtained at an applied university or higher vocational education (HBO in Dutch) in most cases does not grant direct access to the programme (only exceptionally high ranking students stand a chance of admission).

 

Specific requirements for the Health Sciences Master’s programme

 

Students with university bachelor degrees must meet the following admissions criteria:

  1.  Adequate knowledge in health and/or life sciences (see list of ‘Related Disciplines’ below)
  2.  6 ECTS in Epidemiology
  3. 12 ECTS in Biostatistics
  4. 30 ECTS Biology

 

Coursework in Epidemiology and Biostatistics must be at the university Bachelor level and must be listed on an official transcript/certificate.

 

A motivation letter and a copy of the course transcripts are required. The motivation letter should elaborate on:

  •  which course titles from the transcripts meet the 30 ECTS biology requirement
  •  which course titles relate to the 12 ECTS statistics, elaborating on the content and level of statistical analysis and any statistical programs used
  •  which courses titles meet the 6 ECTS epidemiology and the content and level

 

In the event that the content of the course is not self-evident the admissions committee will determine whether a course qualifies based on the information provided in the motivation letter. It is the applicant’s responsibility to make the case explaining the content of the course in relation to the relevant content.

 

Other Bachelor’s and Master’s programmes

 

All students with other Bachelor’s or Master’s degree outside the field of health and/or life sciences will not be admitted.

 

 

General English language proficiency requirements

 

VU Amsterdam requires all applicants to take an English test. You can, however, begin your application without having the test results. Exceptions are made for students who have completed a Bachelor's or Master's in Canada, USA, UK, Ireland, New Zealand or Australia.

 

The minimum English language proficiency requirements for admission to this Master's programme are:

  • IELTS: 6.5 overall
  • TOEFL Internet-based test: 92 overall
  • Cambridge Certificate in Advanced English (CAE): A, B, C
  • Cambridge Certificate of Proficiency in English (CPE): A, B, C
