Epidemiology Postgraduate

Course Description

In MSc Epidemiology Postgraduate and MSc Epidemiology Postgraduate Online, you will examine the distribution and determinants of health and morbidity in specific populations. With evidence-based medicine setting new standards, there is a growing need/demand for specialists working on the design, data collection, analysis, and interpretation of epidemiological and health research. This scientific discipline is increasingly in demand in clinical research (human, pharmaceutical, and veterinary), industry, and policymaking.

Epidemiology Postgraduate is offered in two variants:
- MSc Epidemiology Postgraduate: MSc Epidemiology Postgraduate is a face-to-face programme taught in Utrecht (1.5 years). The programme starts September 2015.

- MSc Epidemiology Postgraduate Online: this variant offers the same content as the face-to-face programme and will be studied online (3-5 years). The programme starts February 2016, deadline for admission and application is October 1st, 2015.

Both variants are highly suitable for applicants who have already completed a postgraduate medical or biomedical degree, such as physicians, veterinarians, pharmacists, and PhD candidates holding an MSc in Life Sciences. For students holding a BSc degree, there is a two-year regular programme.

Please note this Master’s programme is not state funded. This means that this programme:
- has tuition fees of € 28,620;
- is not eligible for study financing from the Dutch student grant and loans system (studiefinanciering); and follows a different application procedure.

Programme objective
