An informed decision
One cannot discount the impact of the financial factor when deciding to study and/or work abroad. Moreover, students who want to study at Ghent University have to dispose of sufficient financial means to cover all expenses during the whole period of study.
Also, keep in mind that applying for a scholarship and applying for admission at UGent are two different things. Applying for funding does not imply that UGent has received your application as a student/researcher. And being granted funding does not imply that you have been accepted at UGent as a student/employee.
