Laurent, who has an IQ of 145, started school at 4 and was in high school at 6 years old.
"Laurent is the fastest student we have ever had here," Sjoerd Hulshof, the director of education at the university, said in a statement, CNN reported. "Not only is he hyper intelligent but also a very sympathetic boy."
His instructors rave about his academic abilities.
"Laurent's absorption capacity is very high, which means that everything goes much faster and we can cover a lot more material in a short span of time," Peter Baltus, a professor at the university and the boy's mentor, told the Times. "It's been quite special and enjoyable."
In his off-time, Laurent has interests similar to most kids, playing video games, posting on social media and watching Netflix.
Ultimately, he would like to develop artificial hearts.
"My goal as a scientist is life extension," he told AD, an online publication in the Netherlands. "My grandfather and grandmother are heart patients and I want to help them."
