Life Long Learning (L3)

life long learning anac phdScience and Technology in Analysis progress fast. Therefore, it is important for professionals in analytical science and technology to keep their knowledge up to date. COAST offers trainings in various analytical fields at various levels that allow professionals to expand their knowledge.

Courses from three programs are available for COAST participants' employees. The courses offered are designed for the best students in Analytical Sciences who follow these courses on top of their regular education. Thus they are particularly fit for people who have been working in analytical sciences for a while already.

See 'Courses on Offer' below this page.

ASTP program

The program is designed for selected talented and motivated professional bachelor students at HLO (Hoger Laboratorium Onderwijs). The program for these students starts after their first year and proceeds until their HLO graduation. As a consequence the program offers courses that are suitable for employees at HLO(+) level who wish to broaden their knowledge towards specific analytical techniques. The courses in this program may also be used by HLO-teachers who wich to update their knowledge of specific techniques or acquire knowledge of applications.

MSc+ program

This is the program for selected talented and motivated MSc students in Analytical Sciences. The lecture part of the training is also offered to employees at HLO(+) level who wish to upgrade their training level either by integrally following the program during a period of two years or by following selected courses. Another target group is PhD students who need an introduction to a certain technique or wish to broaden their general knowledge of analytical science of technology.

PhD education program

Offers specialist training at the highest level. The courses are made for PhD students in the relevant field. They are therefore also fit for senior specialists in research environments.
