Podiatry (Dutch)


The Podiatry education in Ghent is unique in Flanders and guarantees a bright professional career and future! The Podiatrist is a paramedic who examines and treats lower extremity problems, with the goal of solving the problem or preventing further deterioration. The full three year bachelor programme is taught in Dutch.

The city centre of Ghent is expecting nearly 80,000 students in the coming weeks. Therefore, starting Monday 7 September, the obligation to wear a face mask will be expanded to the student district. Wearing a mask will be mandatory for everyone aged 12 years or older in the Sint-Pietersnieuwstraat – Overpoort axis and adjacent streets. On top of that, the city calls on everyone to wear a face mask in other busy areas. That way, we continue to protect ourselves and others against the virus.
