BEST Course in Summer 2020

Hey! You!

Life has many challenges like getting out of bed, making the right decisions and maybe the biggest of them all: the Energy Transition. Nations keep developing and our hunger for energy reached unprecedented levels. The environmental impact of fossil fuels is huge and the rise of cleaner and renewable energy is needed.

Are you able to realize a sustainable transition at the lowest possible cost without compromising the system’s reliability? Then come to our BEST Course in Summer in our lovely city of Leuven, Belgium!

Between the 6th and 15th of July, you’ll first be learning about the Energy Transition. The aim of the course is to give insight into the energy issue in Europe: ensuring an affordable, reliable and sustainable energy provision. Various existing and emerging technologies to facilitate an energy transition are suggested. You’ll get an insight how it’s done in practice through company visits. The seen concepts will be applied for a European country of your choice.

Since it is a basic course, no previous knowledge is required. We will provide you with necessary prematerials so that everyone starts on the same level of knowledge.

You’ll have the chance to hop on a bike and explore Leuven, a city full of ancient heritage that is taken over by the university and now owned and ruled by students! We will guide you around in our cosy and charming city, learn you how to draft a beer like a real Belgian and take you to a visit in one of our many breweries. Be prepared for our delicious chocolate, amazing waffles and the best fries and taste our many excellent beers at the ‘longest bar in Europe‘! You can get a sneak peek in the ‘Leuven in motion’ video made by Basel Zorebieda

Even better, given Belgium’s limited dimensions, we’ll have the chance to explore some of the prettiest other cities in the country to give you the full Belgian experience.

Friends! If there’s one thing you can be sure of after 10 days of learning together, exploring together and having fun together, it’s that you’ll have a sweet set of friends all over Europe to visit afterwards!
So what are you waiting for, don’t be shy, just apply!

Our last course

I loved that I was able to connect with people all around Europe and learn about their cultures. It was amazing sharing stories and interests with all of them, and the fact that we were all students made the bonding process easier.
