Klaas van der Laan working in a laboratory

First-year student of Biotechnology Klaas van der Laan first did a lower vocational training. What he likes about Biotechnology is that scientific questions are approached in a very practical way.

Real challenge

‘This education is a real challenge for me and I like it a lot. Before this I did the lower vocational training in Laboratory Techniques, so I sort of moved on from there.’

Real-life scientific research

‘With this education I’m widening my horizon on a scientific level, but in a practice-based way. In our research we try to find the answers to practical questions. For instance we make fertilizer or low-calorie beer, or we examine the DNA of bacteria in order to be able to locate them faster – it’s all real-life scientific research!’

‘I would love to graduate in Molecular Biology, so I’ll have a few years of study ahead of me. Never mind – I like it!’
