Students have their say

My story at VUB started when I applied for the Erasmus exchange programme. A warm welcome and a variety of activities for newcomers made getting settled in a new city a pleasant experience. It was easy to make new friends, and discovering Brussels and its secrets was very exciting. After my Erasmus exchange, I decided to apply for the Master in Biomolecular Sciences. The diversified programme broadened my scientific horizons and was the perfect choice after finishing a Bachelor in Biotechnology at the University of Gdansk in Poland. During practical trainings I was introduced to many new laboratory techniques and got an overview of scientific work at VUB. The one-year master project was a great opportunity to gain experience in independent laboratory work. I've been living here for three years and I am now working at the laboratory. So my story at VUB continues…
