Afbeelding Policy Objectives

University College Ghent 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, University College Ghent is making a valuable contribution to a critical, creative and open society.

The mission of University College Ghent 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 University College Ghent 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.
