Welcoming students at the start of Ghent University’s semester

We organize welcome sessions for new international degree and exchange students at the start of every semester.

During this current academic year we had successful welcome days and we are convinced that students have settled down in their new city and life.

Still some questions? Check our digital International Student Guide.
