Afbeelding Student Council

“HoGent Great Student Representatives” could be the English interpretation of the abbreviation HGSR, though in reality in stands for “Hogeschool Gent Studentenraad”. It’s the official student council of University College Ghent.

Our university college has a long tradition of involving students and the HGSR is one major example of it. Every committee has a delegate of the council, which makes the HGSR one of the most powerful tools to sustain democracy and to let the voice of the student be heard.

Student representative

As a student representatives you basically only have one objective: make student life at University College Ghent better. A brief sketch of some of your activities:

  • Representing your fellow students through elections.
  • Be the buoy for your fellow students with ideas, concerns, suggestions,…
  • Meet and negotiate with the decision makers of University College Ghent’s, the Ghent University Association and the city of Ghent and even the Flemish Government.
  • Lobby your way through agreements, decisions,…
  • Cooperate with a bunch of likeminded youngsters who want to change the world.

Don’t forget: you get a special statute as representative and can be deliberated from restrictions laid out in the Examination and Education Code. But that’s not the main reason why you should do it, of course!
