Each summer Ghent University students welcome fellow students from all over the world for a 12-day educational programme on the topics of 'Health & Migration' and 'Reproductive Health & Rights', along with various social and cultural activities. Applicants can choose between the two different subjects. Both programmes will take place from the 1st until the 12th of July 2018.
The Summer School 'Health & Migration' and ‘Reproductive Health & Rights’ is a project organized by medical students at Ghent University, in cooperation with the Faculty of Medicine.
The goal of the programme is to introduce students to the reciprocal concepts of 'Health & Migration' and 'Reproductive Health & Rights' in an international context. Therefore, the organizing student board aims to attract students from different nationalities and backgrounds for creating a stimulating and culturally diverse debate in order to broaden the view on the different subjects.
Participants will attend high-quality lectures taught by renowned doctors and professors of Ghent University an various other international partner institutions. At the same time, they will be introduced to the finest Belgium and the City of Ghent has to offer.
'You can enjoy the mesmerizing green of our parks and have your breath taken away by our monumental cathedrals, churches and medieval dungeons. Discuss the day's lectures to the tunes of local musicians and invigorate body and soul with our peerless variety of beer and excellent Belgian cuisine. Education and pleasure have rarely - if ever - marched this closely in step.'
