Ten reasons to choose Odisee
Odisee, the University of Applied Sciences
Our coaches offer personal counselling
At Odisee, everything centres on you. Moreover, you work in small tutorial groups, so there’s plenty of personal attention and no gap between students and lecturers. The lecturers know you. You can go to them with any questions you may have, and they will talk to you about your strengths. They know that you play in a music band, are a sports freak or a passionate scout leader. We keep track of your results personally. For example, we follow your exam results individually so that together we can tailor your course perfectly to your needs and wishes. We believe in the importance of a relationship of trust.
If, for example, you had little in the way of sciences or mathematics in secondary school, you can take a crash course in mid-September, even before you start the programme. Do you need extra support for languages? In that case, you can follow a language workshop. Throughout the year, we also organise sessions on how to study, study methods, study schedules and exam training.
100% co-management of your talents
Odisee goes all out for a talent approach: together, we look for your talents, interests and strengths. From the start of your studies, you will be given the opportunity to set your own priorities. You will make choices about faculty courses, work placements and how you do your assignments and projects. Every student is different and diversity is the norm for us. We encourage each individual with their own otherness to grow as much as possible in their educational process. Towards the end of the programme, you will increasingly immerse yourself in those elements that you prefer and that match your talents and passions.
Our lecturers combine practical experience with theory
Our lecturers are professionals with extensive work experience in their field. They often combine teaching with a job or are researchers. And because we want to offer you the right training, we work together with various partners from the business and educational world.
Co-counseling with your studies
Not all of us can choose a programme quickly and get it right first time. That’s why we help you in your search for the right programme. We hope that this website is a first step in that direction. Even during your studies, you can always contact your lecturers and STUVO+, our student services. And don’t worry if you run into a few problems during your studies next year, we are ready to help with study tips, reorientation, etc.
Are you an enterprising individual?
Do you have a nose for business? Do you have plans to start your own practice or company? At Odisee, you can develop your business plan in the Entrepreneurial Skills elective (ESKI). We also host EntrepreneursCaﬀees for all your questions about business life and we have a whole network of lecturers and experts at our disposal for tailor-made advice. And if you want to get started during your studies, you can choose the status of student-business.
Odisee has an extensive national and international network. Every year, we welcome guest students from partner colleges and universities abroad. You can practice your foreign languages with them when you go for a drink. Most programmes include (inter)national excursions and trips, but of course you can go on an exchange too. Many of our students do one or more work placements abroad, or take the opportunity to do some of their courses abroad, which is very useful for later life, because international experience is an important asset on your CV.
First aid for laptop accidents
Are you looking for a laptop? We have a great offer for you! If you not a high-tech expert, please feel free to drop by our IT department. They will guide you in your search for the most suitable laptop and help you to remove annoying viruses and spam. Our experts can help you with printing, copying, scanning and logging in too.
You will find that you become quickly immersed in university life, either before the academic year starts or in the first weeks. You will become familiar with the Odisee approach, your fellow students, the city and the lecturers. You will learn about your choice of programme and how to get on with it. In addition, every campus has a number of kick-off activities for you, guaranteeing fun from the very start of your studies!
Cool student restaurants
Our student restaurants and sandwich bars serve breakfast, sandwiches, soup, salads and hot meals every day. We resolutely opt for tasty and healthy meals at unbeatable student prices: the dish of the day costs about € 4.
