Secondary Education (Dutch)


Our department offers quality teacher training based on the three pillars of our curriculum: expertise in two core subjects, supporting subjects and work experience. Students will be qualified to teach 12-to-18-year-olds. We have a strong international focus and encourage local students to have an international experience at home or abroad. 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.
