Afbeelding Psychosocial

Experiencing life as a student is not always as easy and fun, and you may encounter emotional and/or relational difficulties that keep you off your concentration, your studies… We know it isn’t easy, but we’re here if you need us. You can arrange an appointment with one of our dedicated staff members who will listen to your story. Entirely confidential.


Our Social Service Division doesn’t offer any therapy services, but can help you in finding a therapy in the medical field that might be helpful for you, by using our Psynet. This is a network of independent psychologists specialised in specific fields, such as relational problems, eating disturbance, depressions, dealing with grief and addictions.

First you will have to apply for an intake conversation with one of our staff at the Social Service Division. Based on this, your file will be appointed to the commission of the Office for Student Services and Student Life for approval.

Upon official agreement of this commission, you can sign a agreement in which University College Ghent agrees upon a number of sessions with a psychologist. You only pay € 2,5 per session and the psychologist can contact the confidential advisor at the Social Service Division for feedback on your progress.

It’s possible to extend the amount of sessions, if deemed necessary by the psychologist.
