If you choose to study at Hanze University of Applied Sciences, Groningen, you will be joining a learning community where we bring education, applied research and the business field together. And on top of that, you will be living in the best student city of the Netherlands.
At Hanze UAS you are not just part of our academic community. You will apply what you learn to larger issues facing society. We focus on energy, healthy ageing and entrepreneurship. Regardless of which programme you choose, we stimulate and support you to specialise in one of these areas, for example, at EnTranCe, our energy transition testing ground; Health Hub Roden, our medical technology centre; or Cube050, our incubator and business accelerator where students can start and grow their own businesses.
There is only one way to find out what you want to do with your degree and that is gain real-life work experience. That is why you will do at least one work placement during your programme. We have a strong network of national and international business partners in a variety of fields. Work experience not only lets you find out what kind of job fits with you, it also puts you ahead on the job market after graduation.
Groningen is the best student city in Holland, according to research agency Elsevier (2016), ranking first for student facilities, cultural hot spots and food and drinks. Groningen is also the youngest city in the Netherlands. Half of the citizens are under 35 and the 50,000 students make up 25% of the total population. There are numerous student societies and international associations allowing you to fully integrate into Groningen’s social life and making you feel right at home.
Working with people for people, that is exactly what health care is. No matter what your role is, your aim is always to provide the correct care for the client or patient and to deliver care effectively, health professionals learn the importance of collaborative team work. At Hanze UAS we offer a number of health care related courses in English (a bachelor’s programme, summer courses and short programmes). Our English-taught programmes together form the International Health Care School.
The School of Health Care Studies offers bachelor’s programmes in Physiotheprapy (both English- and Dutch taught) and the Dutch-taught programmes Speech and Language Therapy, Medical Imaging and Radiation Therapy (MIRT), Dental Hygiene, Health Care Management, and Nutrition and Dietetics. These diverse programmes all share one aspect, they train students to become health care professionals. The advantage of having so many programmes together in one organisation is that, students become familiar with colleagues from other health professions and work together on multidisciplinary projects. We also offer two master’s degrees, Physician Assistant and Healthy Ageing Professional, both Dutch-taught. In addition to as our bachelor’s and master’s programmes, we offer several short programmes and summer courses focused on health which are English-taught.
Graduates of our degree programmes have a broad perspective on health care as well as specialised knowledge and skills relating to their chosen profession. We offer flexibility in our curriculum, so students can customise their programmes according to their professional goals and personal ambitions. Cooperation with the professional field is important for your career. Students focus on this during their studies as well. The health care sector changes continuously. Our degree programmes are based on the latest developments in the professional field, and the most recent scientific insights so that graduates are able to meet the requirements of the profession.
The School of Health Care Studies is located in the Wiebenga Complex, which is listed as a national monument, near the city centre of Groningen. The building has been renovated and extended, resulting in a balanced mixture of old and modern styles. Our building offers a wide range of facilities, such as a study and resource centre, a multimedia library, project rooms and a canteens. Students of all degree programmes have access to skills labs relevant to various professional fields,
where they can to improve their skills.
Students can expand their knowledge by following our international programmes at our International Health Care School.

You will e able to learn from physiotherapy specialists and have the option to conduct applied research for companies or health organizations in the Netherlands or abroad, through our Innovation Work Places and the research group Healthy Ageing, Allied Health Care and Nursing.
In this health care profession you work with people, from children to the elderly, with physical impairments. It is important to be able to understand a patient’s sychosocial
situation. If you like to promote, maintain and restore physical, psychological and social well-being, physiotherapy could be your future profession. This programme aims to teach students to assess and treat patients with temporary or long-term physical injuries, movement disorders or disabilities. The goal is to achieve the highest possible degree of recovery, activity, participation and quality of life. Graduates may work independently or as a member of a health care team. There are currently more than 150 students from over 30 different countries studying Physiotherapy, at Hanze UAS in Groningen. The majority of students studying Physiotherapy are European. However, many students come from Asia, the United States of America, Australia and the Middle East. The Physiotherapy programme is a full-time four-year programme at higher professional education level, leading to a Bachelor of Science degree.
The focus of both programmes are topical aspects relating to globalisation and health, linked to digital health and selftracking. The programmes, with a view to the future, help students to gain knowledge about prevention and selfmanagement in health, important topics in the health care sector. These programmes are developed in close cooperation with the Quantified Self Institute (www.qsinstitute.org) and are the first educational programmes worldwide that incorporate Quantified Self in education at bachelor’s level.
The course Abdominal Ultrasound concerns with the professional and methodical application of ultrasound. The course focuses on the basic clinical skills needed in
abdominal sonographic examinations. This course is offered by the Dutch-taught educational programme Medical Imaging and Radiation Therapy (MIRT).

The course focuses on the anatomy and pathology of the urinary system, image recognition in ultrasound diagnostics, image quality in ultrasound diagnostics, and artefacts.
In this new programme, you will explore , together with students from other programmes, how people can age “healthily”. As life expectancy increases worldwide, so does the importance of reducing illness and maintaining disease free years. Increasingly, this is the focus of treatment methods in health care. The intensified demands of health care are raising the cost of treatments. However, by using smart technological and nontechnological innovations, we can optimise the quality and implementability of the care and keep it affordable. In this minor you will find out more about life course psychology and the positive influence of self-monitoring and
the effect of taking control of and responsibility for ones own behaviour. You will gain insight into wider societal issues and ethical dilemmas. You will further explore the possibilities that technology offers for the development of new health care concepts. You will also learn more skills that will enable you to communicate with your client group. From the start of the minor you will work in a multidisciplinary team on the project assignment within one of the four of the innovation labs Healthy Ageing.

experiments and learn skills. These workshops are situated on Zuiderdiep and are open to all. Students can also use these workshops to explore a technique or medium for the first time.
