The Master in Health Sciences is an ambitious full time 2-year program. Besides lectures (usually Tuesday to Thursday), there is a considerable workload to be done on one’s own. Depending on individual commitment and discipline, part-time work is still possible. At the beginning and end of the terms, there may be block courses scheduled for one or two whole weeks. After the 2nd semester, master students work for 6 months in a research internship (usually 3 days per week) besides visiting lectures at the university.
