International Semester Programme

Healthcare Studies (English)

Healthcare studies offers a unique opportunity to meet students and staff from different countries, cultures and professional backgrounds to discuss and debate issues concerning the present and future role of healthcare workers.

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.
