Ghent University is one of the major universities in the Dutch-speaking region of Europe. Our 11 faculties offer a wide range of courses and conduct in-depth research in both exact and social sciences.
1 September 2014 is a historic day for Ghent University. The first academic year at our brand new Global Campus in South Korea will be inaugurated that day.
Ghent University rises from place 85 to 70 in the recently published Shanghai ranking, an impressive increase. Again Ghent University has the highest score of all Belgian universities in this world ranking of universities.
