University College Ghent – Social Work Department
HOGENT is the largest university college in Flanders offering a wide range of programmes at eight campuses across the cities of Ghent and Aalst, in the Flemish part of Belgium.
HOGENT educates and trains future-proof students. In order to guarantee the long-term employability of students in a changing society, future-proof skills are central to every study programme.
HOGENT is internationally geared while maintaining a strong regional connection within the urban context of Ghent. We systematically seek collaboration and cocreation with partners from business, industry and government on a regional, national and international level.
HOGENT is a major player in the field of applied research and research in the arts. We aim to conduct research that is closely connected to our teaching, addresses contemporary societal challenges, favours interdisciplinary collaboration and strives for maximal impact.
