About

Discover the colourful careers of a greying society with the Health, Ageing and Society programme from Leiden University. Become an expert on healthy ageing, co-creation, innovation and health management of an ageing population.

Overview

This programme has been renamed from Vitality and Ageing to Health, Ageing and Society

What Does this Master’s Programme entail?

There’s more to growing old gracefully than staying as healthy as you can for as long as you can. Maintaining your independence and continued participation in valuable social activities are equally as important.

When it comes to getting old, the internationally oriented Health, Ageing and Society programme from Leiden University will equip you with the kind of knowledge and dedicated academic skills that will enable you to enhance the lives of our senior citizens. Your expertise in the area of ageing will be enriched in three main areas: biological, individual and societal. As no other, you will be primed to play a key role in improving the future of our ageing society.

Why Study Health, Ageing and Society in Leiden?

The master’s Vitality and Ageing is a unique interdisciplinary programme combining various perspectives on ageing as the biology of healthy ageing, public health, and healthcare management. 

You will become an expert in health management of an ageing population. In addition to the knowledge on the ageing  perspectives you will receive extensive training in Academic Development, Communication in Science and Research and Evidence. 

The master’s is appreciated by its students for the personalised study methods and small interdisciplinary set up. Students with various Bachelor backgrounds study together in small groups with extensive guidance from top lectures.
