Travelling is the best education!

VEK is known for its many parties and activities. We are here to give all students an incredible year. And by all students, we really mean all students, including those who have travelled to our beautiful city from all over the world.


For both incoming and outgoing students, we and the international team at VEK do everything we can to ensure you have an unforgettable time. Not only can you come to us with all your questions about school, but we also offer a fun mix of activities in the heart of Ghent. As you may have heard, Ghent was voted the best Erasmus destination and we will show you that this title is fully deserved!

Welcome international students!

Our international team will welcome you with open arms and pull out all the stops to introduce you to this breathtaking city. We will welcome everyone to our campus and make sure you can start your adventure with peace of mind. 


Throughout the year, we provide all kinds of activities. For example, we organise an exam fair where you can ask all kinds of questions about the subjects. Moreover, you can get advice from fellow students to help you prepare for the exam period. But of course, studying abroad is not just about studying. It is about meeting new people, exploring another city, rediscovering yourself. That is why we also provide wonderful activities that will make your time in Ghent unforgettable.


Let us take a quick look ahead. For example, this year, we are planning a pub crawl, go-karting, a cosy tapas evening and much more! For these events, international students do not need to be members of FEB. Both Erasmus students and Degree students from all faculties are welcome to join us, so feel free to bring your friends! 

For our Belgian students...

Are you planning to go on Erasmus yourself, but don't know where to start? No worries because we will help you prepare as well as possible for this exciting experience. We provide enough information so that you will know what to expect. Erasmus students from previous years will share their experiences and there will be information about the selection procedure. We will also guide you through all the challenges associated with Erasmus, such as finding a place to stay and communicating with the local faculty. We can't wait to guide you through one of the most memorable periods in your student career!


Don't forget to follow us on Facebook to keep up to date with our events! It is also recommended to join our Whatsapp groups so you can reach us and your fellow students quickly.


If you still have questions or uncertainties, do not hesitate to contact us. We are here all year long to take away your doubts and worries and give you an unforgettable year.


Many greetings and we look forward to getting to know you!
