Welcome to the School of Health Care Studies
Health Care is work of man, in all senses of the word, with both its challenges, possibilities and limitations, working with and for people. Whether you are a patient, a doctor, an allied health professional or a nurse, your aim is always to provide the correct care for the client or patient concerned. And you do not do that on your own, it is teamwork.
See Programmes above for more detailed information; for an overview of this programmes (in Dutch), visit our Dutch website.
The School of Health Care Studies offers currently two English taught programmes:
The Dutch taught programmes in our school are:
- Speech and Language Therapy;
- Medical Imaging and Radiation Therapy;
- Nutrition and Dietetics;
- Dental Hygiene;
- Health Care Management;
- Master Physician Assistant;
- Master Physiotherapy/Exercisetherapy for People with Chronic Diseases.
These very diverse programmes all share one thing: they train for a specialist profession in Health Care. The advantage of having so many programmes together is that, in the course of your training, you will already get to know your future colleagues from other specialist fields, beside other things by cooperating with them in projects.
Close cooperation and hands-on
The programmes within the School of Health Care Studies focus on teaching you all the skills and knowledge that you will need in your practice later on. That happens by occupation-directed practical sessions in well-equipped skills labs, by activities in our Health Workshop and through internships and graduating assignments.
As regards our international orientation, we have got high ambitions, which we are going to develop even further in the coming years. As mentioned, Physiotherapy already offers an English-taught curriculum and many of the students in Speech Therapy are German.
It goes without saying that an internship abroad is one of the options offered in all of our departments. Apart from that, our School is constructing a network with foreign partner institutions, so that our students can work on topics from Health Care in the context of international projects.
Last but not least: an excellent atmosphere
We regularly hold enquiries into the way students think about our School. Not only does this hold good for the choice in courses, or for housing, we also investigate if you, the student, feel at home in our School. And an important result of our enquiries confirms our own experience: at our School there is an excellent social atmosphere.
In short, would you like to work with people and with problems related to Health Care? Then you will be in the right place at the School of Health Care Studies!
