How to find courses

IMPORTANT! Make sure you are looking at the Course Catalogue of the envisaged academic year!
Because there are many changes in the study programmes, the old course catalogue is not valid anymore.
  • Currently, the course catalogue for next year is still under construction. It will be final on July 1st 2020.
  • You can click on the name of each course to find Course Specifications.
  • To find the semester of all courses, check the study programme files below. You'll find the semester under 'Session'.
  • The new course schedules will also be available from July 1st 2020. Please note that the current course schedule will not be valid for academic year 2020-2021.
  • You will be able to fill in your curriculum in exchange via Oasis upon arrival in Ghent.
