Welcome to Summer School Ghent

The Ghent Summer School team is proud to present the 10th edition of their Health and Globalization program and the 4th edition of their Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights program.

Each summer, we welcome students from all over the world to the beautiful city of Ghent, Belgium.  We organize a 10-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.
