After the new Bachelor’s degree “Health” (“Gezondheid”) has been definitively approved by the Dutch-Flemish Accreditation Organization (NVAO) on 22 December 2020, the Bachelor’s degree program will start in September 2021 in Venlo. The program focuses on prevention in healthcare and on innovations within the healthcare landscape in which technology plays an important role. The program responds to the growing need of companies, care institutions and the government for health professionals. Professionals who focus on the whole: on the demand for help from health, the organization and the living environment. And therefore not only on the symptoms (the disease or disorder).
Aranco has been able to support Fontys University in its application for accreditation by substantiating the labor market needs for graduates of this program. We wish Fontys every success with the launch of the new course.
