Within the framework of the EU programmes as well as exchanges programmes funded by the Flemish Government, our students get the opportunity to study or to undertake a work placement at a European or an international partner institution or organisation.
Each faculty has cooperation agreements with a number of partner institutions, amounting to 200 Erasmus+ partner institutions within Europa, 18 Erasmus Belgica partner institutions within the Walloon community of Belgium and 13 bilateral agreements with institutions mostly based outside Europe. Similarly, qualitative projects and work placements are offered in the framework of development cooperation.
Making the knowledge triangle work is not an empty slogan for HOGENT. HOGENT is regionally anchored and internationally oriented. We link higher education, research and business for excellence and regional development. For our research and services HoGent cooperates with regional, national and international partners (business partners, social profit sector as well as the arts sector). Education, research and its valorisation within HOGENT are based within the practice of the (professional) field and society. At the same time expertise is returned to this professional/artistic field. HOGENT focuses on applied research & research in/of arts.
International networks currently play a major part in decision-making processes in and outside Europe. Participation in a network is also essential with a view to future developments in respect of qualitative feedback, professionalization and international accreditation.
