It is with great pleasure that we welcome foreign students to University College Ghent!
Aiming at an international identity, University College Ghent is looking forward to receiving students from a variety of countries and cultures. 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, which was called “Europe’s best kept secret” by Lonely Planet and listed by Geographic Traveler Magazine as 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!
