Our 11 faculties offer a wide range of courses and conduct in-depth research within a wide range of scientific domains. We are a pluralistic university open to all, regardless of ideological, political, cultural or social background. Our credo is ‘Dare to Think’.
High quality courses
Ghent University is one of the major Belgian universities and one of the leading institutions of higher education and research in the Low Countries. Located in Flanders, the Dutch-speaking part of Belgium and the cultural and economical heart of Europe, Ghent University is an active partner in national and international educational, scientific and industrial cooperation.
We distinguish ourselves as a socially committed and pluralistic university in a broad international perspective. Ghent University is an enterprising university with an international appeal. Driven by our motto ‘Dare to think’ we encourage students and staff members to adopt a critical approach.
In addition to these faculties, Ghent University has five Doctoral Schools just for doctoral researchers. These schools provide support to doctoral students through specialized courses as well transferable skills training, they contribute to a quality culture in research, and take care of the social and international visibility of the doctoral degree.

This integrated vision and actions taken have not gone unnoticed; Ghent University received the European HR Excellence Label in 2014 for its efforts to promote the career of researchers.

To Martians, we are the aliens. Gluten killed the dinosaurs. God is a strawberry. Ghent University challenges you to think critically about scientific (un)truths with frequently absurd statements in Ghent, Courtrai and beyond. After all, something is true until science disproves it, isn’t it? Prove us wrong!

It is because of those who dare to think, who defy dominant views and strong convictions, that the world progresses and we learned that the earth is not flat and that we aren’t the centre of the universe.


Diversity, participation and focus on competitiveness are key elements in our personnel policy. An open business culture is considered a priority, as is the evaluation and support for its workforce. Permanent training is encouraged and support for new employees is considered of the utmost importance. Also sustainability is key. We aim to encourage sustainable work-related travel as much as possible.


Ghent is a vibrant city in the centre of Europe. Combining historical beauty with culture, creativity and an excellent restaurant and nightlife, Ghent is called Europe’s best kept secret by Lonely Planet and ranked as the third most authentic destination in the world according to National Geographic Traveler Magazine.

Ghent is Ghent University and vice versa: the city and the university are complementary partners. Ghent University regularly meets the city council for informative discussions between city, university and students, about hot topics such as environmental and waste disposal policies.
