Also, their 'Buddy' programme ensures you have Belgian student to help you settle down quickly and make friends as soon as you arrive. The university is modern and classes are small so teachers are also coaches and mentors and are very helpful and professional. Howest provided us with new learning practices and methods - it was great to get more practical and hands-on experience.

Howest was the best choice for Erasmus experience and offered us much more than we expected - this is why we both chose to stay for 2 semesters!

Erasmus is the best opportunity you can use while being a student. The international environment makes you realize that in every situation, the people that surround you matter the most. You make so many unforgettable friendships and memories that you will remember for the rest of your life. Howest was a part of that too - all the teachers and the international office were always very friendly and helpful.

"Thanks to this – in Flanders - unique advanced bachelor in the study of Bioinformatics, qualitative staff members now enter the labour market and they perfectly fit in this niche."

Biological experiments become more and more large-scale and the need for streamlined analyses increases. There is a transition from gene-central to genome-wide studies with implications for an advanced use of computer and statistics. Whereas large-scale experiments become cheaper and faster, the analysis of the results becomes ever more labour-intensive.

A possibility to close the gap between bioinformatics and traditional biology and biomedical research is the availability of ‘bioinformatics scientists’.
Howest plays an important pioneering role in this field. Thanks to this unique advanced bachelor in Flanders in Bioinformatics, qualitative staff members now enter the labour market and perfectly fit in this niche. We are convinced these people will contribute to scientific research in Flanders!

"The student is perfectly coached in small groups."

The Bioinformatics training is a unique training for people who want to approach sciences and laboratory work in a different way. Thanks to the increasing use of informatics, the field of bioinformatics comes more and more to the forefront. The student is perfectly coached in small groups. This way, a unique atmosphere is created and students learn a lot in a relaxed way.

In the beginning, many students might be discouraged by the informatics part of the training, but thanks to the good composition of the course package many pieces of the puzzle slowly form one integrated unit.
