Written by admin

The Hasselts University Scholarship invites applications from students residing in developing countries, offering twelve scholarships for a Master’s degree in Transportation Sciences with a specialization in Road Safety. Applications for the International Course Programme (ICP) are currently open.

This scholarship program annually provides opportunities for twelve students from developing nations to pursue an MSc in Transportation Sciences, focusing specifically on road safety. The two-year program emphasizes tackling road safety challenges prevalent in developing countries.

Participants undergo comprehensive training to identify transportation and road safety concerns and devise innovative solutions through an integrative approach. The curriculum revolves around three core pillars:

  2. Environmental aspects emphasize the creation of infrastructure that reduces crash impact and promotes safer roads.
  3. Societal considerations, exploring societal norms and their translation into policy and enforcement measures related to road safety

The program’s interdisciplinary nature integrates psychology, economics, urban planning, environmental studies, engineering, and more into the field of road safety.
