A child prodigy from Belgium is on course to gain a bachelor's degree at the tender age of 9.
Laurent Simons is studying electrical engineering at the Eindhoven University of Technology (TUE) -- a tough course even for students of an average graduate age.
Described by staff as "simply extraordinary," Laurent is on course to finish his degree in December.
He then plans to embark on a PhD program in electrical engineering while also studying for a medicine degree, his father told CNN.
His parents, Lydia and Alexander Simons, said they thought Laurent's grandparents were exaggerating when they said he had a gift, but his teachers soon concurred.
concur[kənˈkɜːr]: vi. 同意；一致
"They noticed something very special about Laurent," said Lydia.
Laurent was given test after test as teachers tried to work out the extent of his talents. "They told us he is like a sponge," said Alexander.
While Laurent comes from a family of doctors, his parents have so far not received any explanation as to why their child prodigy is capable of learning so quickly.
But Lydia has her own theory.
"I ate a lot of fish during the pregnancy," she joked.
The TUE has allowed Laurent to complete his course faster than other students.
"That is not unusual," said Sjoerd Hulshof, education director of the TUE bachelor's degree in electrical engineering, in a statement.
"Special students that have good reasons for doing so can arrange an adjusted schedule. In much the same way we help students who participate in top sport." alt="比利时9岁神童将从大学毕业 职业理想是研发人造器官">

Child prodigy Laurent Simons has left his university course, following a dispute over his graduation date.
Laurent, 9, made world headlines in November when news emerged that he was due to finish his studies in electrical engineering at the Eindhoven University of Technology (TUE) in the Netherlands in December.
Now, a dispute between TUE and the Simons family has seen Laurent terminate his studies without graduating.
TUE said it had recommended Laurent finish his studies by mid-2020, rather than at the end of December, because of the number of exams he still has to pass.
"This would still be, in every way, a phenomenally fast schedule," the university said in a statement sent to CNN.
TUE said Laurent's father, Alexander Simons, had "repeated his explicit wish that his son should obtain his bachelor degree at the age of 9, which means that Laurent must successfully complete his bachelor within ten months for a study that normally lasts three years." alt="神童事件后续：因父亲和校方谈崩 劳伦特没能大学毕业">
