Welcome in Ghent, Flanders, Europe! Studying at University College Ghent and living in Flanders' most vibrant student city is making a statement. You want to discover a history that has been in the making since the Medieval era, you want to hear the sounds coming out of many music bars where people with same and different tastes meet. You want to hear, recognise and even talk the many languages that are spoken. Or just stroll through the cosy streets and enjoy a blend of many architectural styles. Here you will find some information on the communities that live in the city, some touristic and practical information on the city itself.
Want to step out of Ghent for a weekend? Did you know we’re situated at the heart of Europe? Traveling has never been so convenient as Flanders is situated right on 2 major axes: Amsterdam and Paris in the North and South, Berlin and London in the East and West. You will find more information on how to discover Europe easily and student-friendly.
Oh, and don’t forget to attend the Welcome Days at the beginning of the academic year. Here you can make yourself more familiar with the institution and the city, but also meet and greet the many others who joined you on your journey!
