Do you want to get insights into the Pre-Master's? The programme you need to take depends on your previous or current education. What kind of education do or did you follow?
The Pre-Master's is designed not only to address any deficiencies in your prior knowledge, but it is also an efficient way to find out whether studying at a research university in the field of Health Sciences is right for you. Therefore, the following rules apply:
- We ask you to fulfil the requirements of the pre-master’s programme within one year. Since the amount of 30 credits is equivalent to half a year of full-time study, this should not pose a problem.
- You must earn sufficient marks with one re-sit per course. This means you need to take the Pre-Master’s seriously.
- You cannot expect to be successful in the Pre-Master’s if you approach it half-heartedly: it is meant as a half-year, full-time study programme. That said, in practice, almost all motivated students complete the programme in the allotted time.
