Applying for Oral Health Sciences

Per year, only 1-4 students per graduation profile are selected for the postgraduate master's programme. Specifics about the application process and requirements can be found below. It is important to note that, unfortunately, ACTA does not offer any scholarships or loans to students. However, students with a Dutch degree in dentistry can, under certain circumstances, apply for the so-called levenlanglerenkrediet from DUO.

Because of its international character, the programme is taught in English. However, even though 30-50% of the students are international, the communication with patients is usually in Dutch. Therefore, students are expected to have sufficient Dutch language skills to take a patient's basic medical history at the start of the programme.
