At University College Venlo (UCV), you have the opportunity to focus on health, nutrition and business in an interdisciplinary manner. You design your own curriculum by choosing from a broad range of courses from the Social sciences (e.g. psychology, sociology, economics, health management, public health or law) and Life sciences (e.g. biology, chemistry and informatics and physiology). For example, you can study the topic Nutritional Pharmacotherapy (medicine 2.0) together with Social Psychology.
With the help of your personal academic advisor, you build a tailor-made bachelor's programme, perfectly adapted to the master’s programme or professional position you aim for.
