Biomedical Research from Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB) has an excellent reputation in innovative biomedical research which is reflected by the presence of 10 research
clusters on the campus.
The educational programme is very practical and is strongly focused on academic scientific training. We work in small groups and offer an interesting educational programme for open minded critical thinkers. Most professional skills are obtained during the two internships and the writing and defence of a master thesis.
In the last 10 years, 56% of our graduates started a PhD track and 30-40% of the students found a job in biotech companies or the pharmaceutical industry. Belgium also offers great job opportunities in biomedical research, as it has the highest number of clinical studies per capita.
