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.
Global engagement: working towards meaningful collaborations all over the world. In the face of global challenges such as climate change, depletion of natural resources, migration, changing demographics, digitalization… higher education institutions all over the world are engaging in cooperative efforts to find solutions for these global challenges, guided by the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
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.
