Being a student comes with great responsibility. Everything becomes accountable to you and only you. However, you’re not alone on this journey. We are devoted to do everything we can in order to increase the chances of success and for this we offer you a wide range of guidance and counselling services.
New at University College Ghent and not sure if you’re all set to start with your study programme? Take the test and go to start.hogent.be where you can test yourself if you have what it takes to start your studies. After the self-test you will get feedback immediately, including a generated overview of what you might need during your stay. Of course, advice concerning the wide range of study support services will be incorporated in that overview as well. For now the webpages are only available in Dutch.

Students with a recognised disability, extraordinary statute, medical reasons or extraordinary social or individual circumstances can apply for individual measures.
These measures need to comply with four criteria:
The application procedure can be initiated by arranging an appointment with your learning path advisor. Do this as soon as possible, meaning the start of the semester.
During the intake conversation your learning path advisor will look over your learning path and decide whether an individual measure is necessary. The ultimate decision will be taken by your faculty, based on the four formerly stated criteria.

University College Ghent can allocate you an extraordinary statute if you can prove you fall under one of these four categories:
The application procedure can be initiated by filling in the application form for your specific extraordinary statute and needs to be handed in by 15 October at latest. If you enrolled later than usual, the application needs to be handed in 15 calendar days after the date of enrolment. Click here to download each form (in Dutch) to save it on your hard drive. Fill in the form and send it to the corresponding contact person. The Commission will decide within a period of 30 calendar days if you are eligible for the statute. Note that this decision is only valid for one year and needs to be renewed at the start of a new academic year.
