Faculty of Veterinary Medicine

In 2017, the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine of Ghent University was ranked as best Veterinary Faculty on the Shangai ‘Academic Ranking of World Universities’. It currently hosts over 2500 students with more than 250 new veterinarians graduating every year. The Veterinary School was founded in 1933 as "Veeartsenijschool" in the heart of the city of Ghent. The Belgian Nobel prize winner Prof. Dr. Cornelius Heymans, played an important role in the establishment of the Ghent Veterinary School. In 1996 the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine moved to a large clinical campus in Merelbeke, a small town in the suburb of Ghent, in order to provide and improve the housing facilities suitable for veterinary medicine.

Ghent University

Ghent University was founded in 1817, during the Dutch reign of Prince William of Orange-Nassau, and thus predates the Belgian nation as we know it today. Becoming ‘Ghent University’ in 1991, it currently hosts over 56000 students and around 9000 staff members. Ghent University has about 120 departments across 11 faculties, offering high-quality research-based educational programs in virtually every scientific discipline. Its appeal as an institute of higher education growing every year, Ghent University is now a top 100 university and the largest university in Belgium.
