Health Sciences

Everyone will agree that there is nothing as important as good health. But how do you maintain good health? And what is good health? We already know a lot, but there is so much more to discover. Is this the kind of challenge you're looking for? Then Health Sciences is the right choice for you. Each course of this programme covers a new health sciences perspective, giving you a strong overall picture of the biological, behavioural and socio-scientific aspects of health. You'll combine courses on the influence of food and exercise with the study of topics such as health development and the prevention of illnesses. The career paths you could pursue vary widely, ranging from policy making and project management to careers in communications and consultation.
