About

The Biomedical Sciences. Specializations: Infectious and Tropical Diseases programme offered at University of Antwerp trains highly skilled scientists who are able to conduct research in a wide biomedical field and supervise such research in academic, clinical or industrial settings.

Overview

In this specialisation, you study relevant infectious and tropical diseases, gaining practical insights into the interaction between the ecology and the disease.

The focus of this Biomedical Sciences. Specializations: Infectious and Tropical Diseases programme at University of Antwerp is on research.

You will spend half of your study time on practical research while doing internships and on writing a dissertation. Collaboration between the Institute for Tropical Medicine and the university laboratories provides you with the unique opportunity to participate in high-level research on HIV, malaria and other infectious and imported diseases.

In addition, you are offered the opportunity to study abroad for part of the programme.

Your future

Graduates often go on to work as researchers at the Institute for Tropical Medicine, or in pharmaceutical or biotech companies and university labs where tropical diseases and imported diseases in general are studied.

Learning Outcomes

  • The master can independently analyse, describe and evaluate a biomedical problem and formulate research strategies.
  • The master can independently formulate hypotheses from ‘state of the art’ literature and can independently interpret experimental data correctly in the context of that hypothesis.
  • The master can execute specialized research techniques under supervision, and interpret and report the results.
  • The master can draw the correct conclusions from personal experimental findings and redirect his research plan accordingly.
  • The master can function autonomously in a research team, in multidisciplinary as well as in international research networks.
  • The master can independently and accurately plan and execute experiments, collect scientific data and statistically correctly analyse and evaluate these and report on them.
Job opportunities
