HOGENT is the largest University of Applied Sciences and Arts in Flanders offering a wide range of programmes at eight campuses across the cities of Ghent and Aalst, in the Flemish part of Belgium.
The curricula stimulate open-mindedness in students and encourage them to tackle challenges in an interdisciplinary and holistic way.
HOGENT is internationally geared while maintaining a strong regional connection within the urban context of Ghent. We systematically seek collaboration and cocreation with partners from business, industry and government on a regional, national and international level.
Our researchers systematically seek collaboration and cocreation with citizens and with professional partners from business, industry and government on a regional, national and international level. Thus, our research develops our students’ critical thinking, information and research skills, contributes to the ongoing professionalization of our lecturers and makes HOGENT an invaluable innovation partner for the professional field.
