About this discipline

Summers seem to be getting warmer while a carpet of snow is becoming increasingly rare and torrential downpours are flooding streets. Do you lie awake over rising sea levels, melting glaciers and daily monster traffic jams? Do you get up to see a helicopter fly over Mars live? And what does the future bring? A new virus mutation perhaps or Elon Musk offering return tickets to space?


Complex problems call for innovative, creative solutions. The natural sciences programme will help you with this. With knowledge and skills from physics, chemistry and biology as well as extra attention for mathematics, you will learn to analyse and understand these issues. In our natural sciences course, you will build a solid theoretical foundation.


Student profile

Nature amazes you time and again and you are looking for clear answers. A scientist is curious and eager to learn. Do you have the ability to work systematically and accurately? Do you take the time to analyse things in detail? Then perhaps you are a new Newton (you know, the one with the apple) and this discipline is for you!


Natural Sciences is a doorstroomrichting. The course is aimed at a continuation of higher education, not at the labour market.


We want to train students of our scientific disciplines to become the scientific entrepreneurs of tomorrow. Entrepreneurs who are confronted with the benefits and challenges of globalisation. That is why we are proud of the European recognised STEM label ‘PROFICIENT’. It guarantees our science students that they will receive STEM education tailored to their needs in a modern, active, inspiring, and pioneering way in close collaboration with Antwerp’s business community.
