A VISTA is one of the best institutes that I have studied in. My department teachers are friendly and I had great classmates. The study program provides course material in a very comprehensive manner touching on all the relevant topics. I also like that our lecturers use real- life examples and the fact that the infrastructure is very useful. The skills I learnt during the program have helped me immensely in my career. I thoroughly enjoyed the coursework at Bioinformatics (VISTAS).

Senior Scientist , Gilead Sciences, Inc
As a student in the M.Sc. program in Bioinformatics, I gained both the skills and confidence to thoughtfully use a variety of quantitative approaches in my work. The instructors in each course were patient, understanding, and highly skilled. I would highly recommend this program to anyone wanting to expand their quantitative repertoire or for anyone who needs a refresher.
