Welcome at Ghent University for international students

The International Support Team gives international students a warm welcome and helps them before, during and after their arrival at Ghent University.

International students can visit and contact us by mail or phone. View our contact information.

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.

And of course, this academic year as well. We invite new international students to our welcome days at het Pand. We organise an information session and afterwards the students can talk to some of our partners.

More information and details of the programme are in our digital International Student Guide.
