Credits
Projects
International Project 1

In the International Project 1 students will learn to work in the lab in an international setting. For this purpose, they will stay abroad or in Wallonia for one week.

This project stimulates the student in his/her professional development where internationalization/diversity is a must. 

The aim of this OLOD is to teach the student knowledge and English and/or French jargon about relevant biomedical analyses and techniques. In addition, the student is stimulated to develop his/her English/French communication skills.

International Project 3 - Medical Lab Technician

During this project the student will perform a next generation sequencing experiment.
This will start from library prep over sequencing till data analysis.
This project is in collaboration with the Bright Core facility from the university hopspital of Brussels.

International Project 3 - Pharmaceutical & Biological Lab Technician

Lecture (4h):
During these lectures, students will receive a guest lecture on Next Generation Sequencing (NGS).

Practical (4 h):
During this project the students will go through a Next Generation Sequencing experiment in groups.
First they will do the library preparation and sample preparation.
Then the samples will be sequenced and afterwards the data analysis will be done.
This project takes place in collaboration with the Bright Core of the UZ Brussel.

Research
Research in Biolab 1

The student will work on a research project during several weeks in either semester 1 or 2. He/she will write a project proposal. This can be an own idea or you can join a project based on the research that is performed in the Biomedical Science Center. Based on this research proposal, you will make a workplan and perform the experiments in the lab. The results will be written down and presented.

Internships
International Internship Pharmaceutical & Biological Laboratory technician (8 weeks)

The internship first of all offers students the opportunity to apply the competencies developed and acquired in their training, in an actual work environment. They will be confronted with situations that can hardly, if at all, be simulated at the university college. During the internship, students will learn to recognize and solve problems independently and to carry out assigned duties to a successful conclusion. They are expected to prove they are able to function as an individual and as a colleague in an employment context. The internship prepares students for their future professional lives.

The course internship is intended primarily to practice modern analytical techniques and to update the knowledge within the relevant discipline.
Students performing a course internship may work around a specific subject, but may just as well participate in various experiments/studies. The purpose of a course internship is to gain as much experience as possible within a lab. Students write an internship report on the techniques used and the results of the experiments, without a literature study.

Language of instruction: English.

International Work Placement Pharmaceutical & Biological Laboratory Technician (12 weeks)

They are expected to prove they are able to function as an individual and as a colleague in an employment context. The internship prepares students for their future professional lives.


The purpose of the final work internship is to conduct experimental research around a specified problem statement (research topic), the results of which are then incorporated into a thesis, together with a literature study. Students are therefore expected to work around a specific research topic.

Electives
Survival Dutch

The aim of the "Survival Dutch" course is to master the basics of the Dutch language, both written and spoken. Starting from everyday situations, you will learn the necessary grammar and vocabulary in order to function in a Dutch speaking environment.

We strongly recommend incoming students to participate in the Survival Dutch course, organized prior to the start of the semester:
from September 7th - 17th.
