Welcome to Summer School Ghent


The Ghent Summer School team is proud to present the 10th edition of their summer program.

Each summer, we welcome students from all over the world to the beautiful city of Ghent, Belgium. We organize a 12-day educational program, completed with various social and cultural activities. Applicants can choose between two different subjects; ‘Health & Migration’ and ‘Sexual & Reproductive Health & Rights’. Both Summer Schools will take place from the 5th until the 16th of July 2020.
Our goal is to provide an unforgettable experience by broadening your view on the subject as well as to introduce you to the finest Belgium has to offer. The mix of nationalities of the participants guarantees an interesting multicultural setting, resulting in long-lasting friendships.

You will attend interesting lectures taught by renowned doctors and professors connected to Ghent University as well as other international institutions. Next, you can enjoy the mesmerizing green of our parks and have your breath taken away by our monumental cathedrals, churches and medieval dungeons. Discuss the day’s lectures to the tunes of local musicians and invigorate body and soul with our peerless variety of beer and exquisite Belgian cuisine. Education and pleasure have rarely -if ever- marched this closely in step.

Interested? You can apply by visiting our website and filling out the application forms on the applications page. We have limited the necessary evil of paperwork to a minimum. Please bear in mind that places are limited, so apply sooner rather than later and nothing will keep you from enjoying your stay in vibrant Ghent!

Corona update


Summer School Ghent is aware of the current outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19) disease, affecting all parts of the world.
Since our Summer Schools ‘Health & Migration’ and ‘Sexual & Reproductive Health & Rights’ are still quite far off, we have no intent of cancelling the Summer School. We will keep you updated on our social media and official website, and applicants via email if any changes occur.

Because of the confusion there might have been, we have decided to extend our deadline to the 20th of March 2020, which will give you enough time to send us your application and become a part of Summer School Ghent 2020.

Note: it is possible that we open applications again after our selection procedure for some additional time, if current applications don’t fill all the available spots after the selections. Because of visum time restrictions, we will only be able to accept European students (or students who don’t need a visum) after the 20th of March. Stay in touch!
