Program description

Health Psychology & Digital Interventions

Erasmus University Rotterdam offers you one of the best master Programs in Psychology in the Netherlands. This master track is for anyone with an interest in the psychology of behaviour change, and the use of digital interventions to promote (mental)health or influence behaviour. In this master you will learn how you can use psychological theory to design and evaluate effective interventions, as well as how technology can be leveraged to provide unique solutions for an increasingly complex society.

Together with our experts, you will take on the challenge to analyze, investigate and solve complex behavioural problems. You will start with exploring how psychological processes are linked to behaviours, and how we can use these insights to design interventions that promote healthier choices. This master trains you to become an all-round professional who is able to apply scientific knowledge in practice. Graduates have an advantage because of their good theoretical basis and excellent research and practical skills.

Tuition fees

Master programs

  • EU: EUR 2.143
  • Non-EU: EUR 15.100

Studying in a foreign country can be very expensive. Fortunately, the Dutch government subsidizes higher education which leads to lower tuition fees for students with a nationality from a country belonging to the European Economic Area (EEA). In recent years, more and more students from outside the EEA have decided to study in the Netherlands, resulting in a growing demand for academic scholarships.

Scholarships & funding

There are scholarships and grants for two groups:

1. Students from abroad, who wish to study at EUR or are already doing so;

2. Students studying at EUR, wishing to go abroad for a while during or after their current study program.
