(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 many people are facing more and more challenges to maintain their work-life balance, stress and healthy lifestyle behavior due to the increasing intensity of life, 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 in coaching lifestyle behavior, counseling 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 co-operation. During the semester some company visits are arranged, so that students will learn about the Belgian corporate culture.

The international semester programme offers a choice out of 14 modules, of which 6 are standard and thus obliged. Apart from these standard modules, the student choses one of the two options below. Within this option, he/she can chose modules with an overall maximum of 30 ECTS.
