Are we allowed to contact the professors?

Yes, Ghent University has an open communication culture between students, professors and other staff.

Most of the professors are available before/after the class in the classroom to answer your questions.

It is also possible to send an e-mail or make an appointment. Contact details can be consulted in the phone book.

Keep some basic behaviour in mind:

  • Be polite
  • Introduce yourself (also in e-mail!)
  • Keep it formal, adapt your language
  • E-mail is no 'chat box', the respondent is not attached to its e-mail 24h/24h
