gdm-grafimediatechnologie.jpgWhat?

This international program is conceived to deepen your skills and knowledge in a particular field of study. You will need to choose:

  • 1 LAB: in this LAB you will work individually and creatively on a project. You will be guided and challenged by the lecturers and work in a motivational environment between your peers. You will also receive a lot of freedom, as long as you raise the bar high enough.
  • 2 EXPERT CLASSES: in these classes experts from specialized fields are invited to go deeper into specific niches and topics linked to a LAB. At the end of the classes you will need to pass an exam.
    You will need to choose:
    • 1 expert class linked to your LAB
    • 1 expert class linked to another LAB

As an Erasmus student you will integrate easily as you follow the classes/labs together with your Flemish 3rd year student colleagues. English is the language of instruction, if not you will receive instructions simultaneously in English.
