Welcome at Ghent University for international students

The International Support Team gives international students a warm welcome and helps them before, during and after their arrival at Ghent University.

International students can visit and contact us by mail or phone

Welcoming students at the start of Ghent University’s semester

We organize welcome sessions for new international degree and exchange students at the start of every semester.

And of course, this academic year as well. We invited new international students to our welcome days at het Pand. We organised an information session and afterwards the students talked to some of our partners.

New students were welcomed on 20 and 21 September 2023.

In semester 2 we invite students for the Welcome days on 8 and 9 February. More information and details of the programme are in our digital International Student Guide.
