Master programmes in the framework of development cooperation

Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degrees

are high-quality course programmes at Master level, which were selected for funding by the European Commission. Each course programme is offered by a consortium of universities which are situated in different European countries. As a student of an Erasmus Mundus Master Course you will study in at least two of these countries and after successfully completing the programme, you will be awarded a recognized double, multiple or joint diploma.

5 current and 4 former Erasmus Mundus Master Programmes are currently jointly offered by Ghent University and partner universities.

Postgraduate studies

Postgraduates comprise study programmes of minimum 20 ECTS credits, awarded by a certificate, in some cases referring to a legally recognized professional qualification. They constitute study and learning paths intended to enable students to explore the competences acquired upon completion of a bachelor’s or master’s study, in greater depth and scope, as part of their further professional training.

Permanent training (continuing education)

Permanent training comprises a broad range of courses, life-long learning, education in new or fast developing fields of study. The duration and entrance requirements to these courses are very flexible. Some lead to a specific certificate awarded by Ghent University.
