Bachelor's and Master's degrees in health sciences are among the trendy courses of study in recent years, not least because the population's health awareness is constantly increasing. In the subject of health sciences you deal - depending on the degree programme - with psychological, physical and social conditions of health and illness. The study programmes at private universities, from health management to therapeutic sciences, are as diverse as the forms of study. In addition to classic On-campus programs, distance learning and dual studies are becoming increasingly popular.

Here I show you the most popular Bachelor's and Master's degrees in the field of health sciences and compare the programmes in terms of study content, admission requirements and tuition fees.

Study programmes in health sciences are offered by numerous private universities in Germany. Unfortunately, I cannot give you a general answer as to which university is the best for you.

Bachelor of Health Sciences without NC: Prerequisites at a glance

The special thing about studying at private universities: In almost none of the Bachelor's and Master's degree programmes is there an admission restriction by numerus clausus. Motivation and commitment play more of a role here than the grade on the transcript. For many of the degree programmes, you will therefore still have to write an application and take part in a selection process - especially for the medical degree programmes. In some cases, you will also have to complete internships before starting your studies.

Exemplary for the admission requirements, here are the requirements for the B.Sc. Physician Assistance at Carl Remigius Medical School:

  • You have the General Higher Education Entrance Qualification (Abitur), this entitles you to study at all universities and in all federal states.
  • Or you have the subject-specific higher education entrance qualification, this entitles you to study in the corresponding subject area and in the federal states shown on the certificate.
  • Or you have the University of Applied Sciences Entrance Qualification, this entitles you to study at a university of applied sciences or in a stepped course at a university in the federal states shown on the certificate.

Alternatively, you can also be admitted without Abitur or University of Applied Sciences Entrance Qualification. This is not only possible at the Carl Remigius School, but at almost all private universities that I present to you here. The following is a prerequisite for studying without an Abitur:

  • You have passed a master's examination.
  • Or you have a qualification in accordance with the Ordinance on the Access of Vocationally Qualified Persons to Higher Education Institutions in the federal state of the higher education institution, i.e. either a qualification from a vocational advanced training of about 400 hours, a qualification from a technical school or a vocational or administrative academy, or a passed final examination in a state-recognised training occupation followed by at least three years of professional activity and passing a separate higher education entrance examination.

In addition, for admission to the B.Sc. Physician Assistance, you provide proof of 120 hours of nursing internship in the field of inpatient nursing. The nursing internship can be made up in the course of the first two semesters upon written application.

In addition, all CRMS applicants undergo a university selection procedure.

Career prospects & salary

Career prospects for graduate health economists
© APOLLON University of Health Care Management

The career prospects for a degree in the health sciences are, of course, as varied as the degree programmes I present to you here.

Depending on the degree and the degree programme, you will work, for example, in hospitals, at insurance companies, at health authorities, in care facilities and, of course, in practices. Many graduates are also active in research, either at universities or in pharmaceutical companies.

The possible salary in the health industry depends on numerous factors: of course, the federal state, the degree, the degree programme and also your work experience. As an example, I show you here average salaries of typical professions in the health sciences:

occupationGross salary
Health manager 3,874.-
Health care nurse 2,794.-
Physician Assistant 3,320.-
Nursing Assistant/Nursing Management 3,838.-

For graduates with a degree in health sciences, the average gross annual salary is likely to be between 30,000 and 50,000 euros, depending on the federal state and professional experience.

Distance learning in health sciences

Distance learning and online study programmes have been particularly trendy since 2020 because they allow flexible study from home. Distance learning courses are particularly popular among working people who want to complete an academic Bachelor's or Master's degree part-time.

Interesting universities with distance learning courses in the health sector are, for example, the APOLLON University of Health Care Management and the IUBH International University of Applied Sciences. The latter offers numerous distance learning courses ranging from health management to physiotherapy.

Here are the best distance learning courses in the health sector.

Dual degree programme in health sciences

In the field of health sciences, a particularly large number of dual degree programmes are offered by private universities. Dual degree programmes are usually completed with a double degree, i.e. they conclude with a Bachelor's degree and a vocational degree, for example.

In some universities, the Bachelor's degree is taken over by the student.

At some universities, the practical company even pays the tuition fees, for example in the dual study programme at the IU International University of Applied Sciences.
