Exchange Master Marine and Lacustrine Science and Management

Incoming Master students in Marine and Lacustrine Science and Management can make a choice among the following courses.

Important notes:
1. Please contact the responsible exchange coordinator, Karolien Van Puyvelde (karolien.van.puyvelde@vub.be), to discuss the selection of courses.
2. Make sure you select courses that are offered during your stay; either semester 1 (fall semester) or semester 2 (spring semester).
3. Check the timetables on www.oceansandlakes.be to avoid overlap of your courses.
4. There is an extra cost of approximately 350 - 400 euro when choosing two field courses (6 ECTS)
5. Some of the practicals have a limited number of students that can participate. Make sure to check this with the responsible exchange coordinator.
6. Several courses are taught at UGhent or Uantwerp, as our Master is an interuniversity programme.
