About us.

It is with great pleasure that we welcome you to HOGENT! As a foreign student you bring with you your cultural traditions, perspectives and contacts. We are sure that your contributions will enrich our learning environment. We are situated in Flanders’ most popular student city Ghent, also known as Europe’s best kept secret and the most authentic historic city in the world. Every year, Ghent attracts 70,000 students for higher education studies, which effectively makes it the higher education capital of Flanders. Welcome to what we trust will be an exciting time at our institution!

Best regards

Koen Goethals
Rector 

About us.

HOGENT strives to excel in education, research, service provision and practice of the arts. Through the expertise of its staff and graduates and the valorisation of its research, HOGENT is making a valuable contribution to a critical, creative and open society.

The mission of HOGENT is reflected in its student mobility, its guaranteed transparent use of ECTS, the stimulation of active staff mobility, the support of international educational projects and international institutional cooperation through internationalisation of curricula and internationalisation at home.

Our international office is a central unit which stimulates, informs, counsels and supports HOGENT in its endeavours to shape this objective. This international orientation is highlighted even more by our participation in Ghent University Association, which aims at an international profile. This partnership enables us to reshape our European and international policy by taking into account the priorities set by the European Community.
