Corona update: CANCELLATION

In light of the recent developments concerning the COVID-19 pandemic and based on the advice of health care experts, we sadly have decided to cancel our two summer schools ‘Health & Migration’ and ‘Sexual & Reproductive Health & Rights’. 

We truly regret to inform you about this decision, as a lot of time and effort was invested in the organisation of these summer schools. Our team was ready to welcome an amazing group of international students with open arms, but because of the current situation, we are convinced that it would be irresponsible to invite teachers and students from all over the world to Ghent this summer. Therefore, we believe this was the only right decision to make.

Nonetheless, our team is ready and enthusiastic to start organising our summer schools again next year. We will keep you updated when the applications for next year’s edition will open.

If you have any further questions, do not hesitate to contact us. 

We are wishing you all the best and good health for you and your family.
We hope to see you next year!
Keep in touch!

Team Summer School Ghent

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!
