About us

Your agent for international students

Yomema links students to a health care organization. The health care organization will be an internship place and is responsible for the student's learning process. The basic principle is that the students actually will fit in with an organization. Yomema selects the best students for this, based on an extensive selection procedure in collaboration with Avans+. Then the health care organization is part of the study trajectory of international students. After completing the study course, students receive a Dutch Bachelor of Nursing diploma.

Hoe werkt Yomema?

Yomema stands for making a substantial contribution to the quality and continuity of the healthcare in the Netherlands. That is why we want to maintain a long-term cooperation in which we collaborate with Avans + to prepare international students for Dutch healthcare system.

In summary, the process looks like this:

  • The student applies.
  • If the profile matches, the student is invited to the selection procedure.
  • The student is interviewed via a video call as part of the selection procedure.
  • YOMEMA searches for a suitable internship placce.
  • If everything goes well, the student will start a 26-week (approximately 6 months) course aimed at: the Dutch language (up to B1 level), intercultural and nursing competences.
  • You fly to the Netherlands to start your full-time study (Bachelor of Nursing) with a corresponding internship of a total of 4 years.

Ons team

The Yomema team consists of professionals who know how to operate within an international context and have experience in training courses. Furthermore, our team is strong in innovation and are therefore able to contribute ideas about the current and future healthcare shortage in the Netherlands and Europe. We would like to introduce ourselves to you.
