2016 University of Ghent Scholarships for Masters Degree Students from Developing Countries in Belgium

University of Ghent Scholarships for Masters Degree Students from Developing Countries in Belgium

Ghent University provides Master Grants to candidates from developing countries who wish to obtain a master’s degree at Ghent University.

During its meeting of 23rd May 2001, the Ghent University Board of Directors decided that special measures would be taken to provide postgraduate scholarships to candidates from Developing Countries who wish to obtain a master’s degree at Ghent University.

In 2016 the call will only be open for students already in their first Master year at Ghent University.

Course(s) Offered: Any approved field
Course Level: Postgraduate (diploma, masters)
Provider: University of Ghent
Country to Study in: Belgium

Eligibility (Who Can Apply?)
Students already in their first master year of one of the below mentioned programmes at Ghent University.

The following should apply for candidates to be eligible:

1). Degree: You should already have obtained a bachelor degree when you submit your application.

2). Nationality: You may apply for a Masters programme (or an International Course Programme, ICP) if you are a national of one of the developing countries on the Master Grants country list (PDF) (or the VLIR-UOS country list respectively). Priority, however, will be given to the categories on the country list with the lowest levels of development and income. Priority will also be given to students applying for an ICP-programme whose country is not on the VLIR-country list but on the UGent list.

Please note that if your country is on the VLIR-UOS country list, you should apply for the VLIR-UOS scholarship instead. See the VLIR-UOS Masters and VLIR-UOS Training Scholarships.

3). Language and proficiency: The application is to be made in English. The applicant should have a very good command of the English language. Click here to see the requirements.
