(English-taught semester) Applied Health and Lifestyle Sciences

Howest English-taught semester Applied Health and Lifestyle Sciences
"Learn to coach, coordinate, communicate and illustrate professional projects!"

In this programme we develop professionals who will facilitate other people in finding their balance in life and work. In a world where, due to the increasing intensity of life, many people are dealing with stress and challenges to maintain their work-life balance and healthy lifestyle behaviour,  there is a need for innovative young professionals who can face this trend. In this open international semester students will meet with a key common interest: to find innovative ways of engaging people and coaching lifestyle behaviour, counselling and the grassroots of human development.

Students from different nationalities and backgrounds learn to coach, coordinate, communicate and illustrate professional projects and apply this knowledge and these skills in an integrated project where they will take the role of the human facilitator in a multidisciplinary team. During the Autumn semester, emphasis will be on theoretical lectures as well as on experiential learning and individual- or group- projects. Students will work on different projects, mostly in mixed teams. The aim is to integrate students from abroad with Belgian students and stimulate teamwork and international communication and cooperation. During the semester, several company visits are arranged, so that students can learn about the Belgian corporate culture.

The international semester programme offers a choice out of 10 modules,  with an overall maximum of 30 ECTS. 

Students who cannot and do not choose language courses such as English for exchange students as a window of mobility can take the Individual Movement Skills module as a back-up.

This English-taught semester is organised by our Bachelor of Applied Health and Lifestyle Sciences (TGW) and Bachelor of Sports and Movement (SB).

This programme is only available in English!
