Course overview

Clinical and Psychosocial Epidemiology is a highly selective program that only admits the best students interested in health research. The programme focuses on the relationship between clinical and psychosocial factors in the development, progress and treatment of chronic diseases. The program is multidisciplinary and in close collaboration with clinical departments of the University Medical Center.


We offer the opportunity to work with top scientists in their field to ensure that you acquire the necessary skills to perform largely autonomous research in clinical and psychosocial epidemiology. Your class will consist of students with different backgrounds, such as (bio)medical sciences, biology, pharmaceutical sciences, health sciences and psychology.


You have a background in (bio)medical sciences, biology, pharmaceutical sciences, health sciences or psychology and belong to the absolute top of your class.

If you have successfully applied to an undergraduate scholarship in Science without Borders, we offer the possibility to apply to an exchange position in this program.

Because of the very selective nature of this program, we require that you are an advanced student with an excellent academic record in a relevant program. Additionally, you should meet the English-language requirements: TOEFL 92 IBT or IELTS 6.5. Please keep in mind that this program is only for you if your passion is research and you wish to either continue with a master’s or a PhD program after completing your undergraduate degree.

In addition, you need to master basic statistical skills, including probabilities, descriptive statistics, and hypothesis testing. An entrance exam in basic statistics and an interview are part of the admission procedure.
