It’s hard to pick out any one moment, but getting the chance to make heaps of new friends from all over the world while studying at a great university in an awesome and foreign culture was pretty amazing.

As soon as you arrive, hire a bike. This is really the best way to see the city, and cars and pedestrians are very obliging to the cyclists on the road. Enjoy and make the most of every single minute you are there, because it is truly a once in a lifetime experience that will stay with you for the rest of your life.

I cannot recommend the city of Ghent enough. It is easily one of the hidden gems of Europe. The city centre is very small, with beautiful canals and historic buildings.

I would definitely encourage anyone considering an exchange to do it, you not only get the opportunity to travel to amazing places, but also meet and become friends with people from all across the world, who sometimes offer completely different life experiences to you”

– Hayden, Ghent University

Belgium does live up to its stereotype of it being all about the fries, beer, and waffles – everyone is obsessed.

– Amelia, Ghent University

Ghent is a student city, meaning almost everything is set up to cater to a student’s every need. It also means there are always lots of young people around – and always something to do.
