GHENT UNIVERSITY GLOBAL CAMPUS
Obtained permanent accreditation for all curriculums from the VLUHR.
The study programs offered at Ghent University Global Campus (GUGC) obtained permanent accreditation from the Flemish Council of Universities and University Colleges (VLUHR) in May. Located in Brussels, Belgium, VLUHR is authorized by the decree of April 4, 2003, concerning the restructuring of higher education in Flanders to execute external quality assessments of educational programmes of Flemish universities, university colleges and other statutory registered institutions of higher education.
A panel of experts from VLUHR visited GUGC in November 2019, and intensively reviewed its study programs, focusing on the curriculum, educational resources, and curriculum competitiveness, to determine whether the programs met the standards of higher education set forth by the Accreditation Organisation of the Netherlands and Flanders (NVAO), a quality assurance agency, and comply with all relevant laws and regulations. The Global Campus of Ghent University was founded in 2014, based on VLUHR's Provisional Accreditation, and now offers three undergraduate courses in Food Engineering, Environmental Engineering, and Molecular Biotechnology.
Hosted “Duo Day” for disabled students with Embassy of Belgium
GUGC hosted Duo Day for disabled students on May 28 with the Embassy of Belgium and the Korea Employment Agency for Persons with Disabilities as part of its social contribution activities. Duo Day is an event that invites disabled college students to the embassy and provides them with a one-day job experience.
Student YOON Shinhye (a senior majoring in English Education at Chongshin University) who participated in this one day job experience event, had the chance to visit various facilities and experience work in GUGC. “I was so happy to learn the duties of a foreign educational institute that I was interested in and take the time to broaden my knowledge,” she said, adding “I would like to thank GUGC for giving me a valuable opportunity.” Professor HAN Taejun, President of GUGC, disclosed that “GUGC will provide a wider variety of experiences through various social contribution activities by making the most of its characteristics going forward.”
