...for degree students

Making an informed choice

  • Language of instruction - Please consider that all UGent bachelor programmes are taught in Dutch. English is only used in some Master programmes as the main language of instruction. Good language proficiency is therefore absolutely necessary and formally required.
  • Next to a good language command a well-motivated study choice is highly important: look for an study programme to fit you.
  • We want to remind you that students who want to study at our university have to dispose of sufficient financial means to cover all expenses during the whole period of study.
  • Holders of a non-Belgian degree can only be admitted after an application procedure that may take several months. Start your preparations (including applying for a visa) well in advance. Also take into account the deadlines of the administration.
