Wednesday February 22 the BEP-event took place. This annual event was organized by us in cooperation with study association AnArchi to inform students about the Beroepservaringsperiode / Professional Traineeship. This two years trajectory is mandatory to receive the title of Architect or Urbanist. In order to get into the BEP, students already have to make the choice whether to follow this traineeship or not at the start of their master, because a special set of courses is needed to get into it. For this reason students are highly encouraged to get informed at this event.
During the BEP-event we were happy to welcome several speakers proclaiming different views on the BEP. The Architectenregister explained some more about the ins and outs of the trajectory and the vision behind it, while two participants in the BEP could tell some more about their experiences of following it themselves. After their individual talks we ended with a collective discussion during which all questions of the audience were answered.
