Ghent University, often abbreviated to UGent, is one of the major universities in the Dutch-speaking region of Europe.

It has around 38.000 students and 8.600 staff. But those numbers are only part of the success story.

In the Academic Ranking of World Universities Ghent University is the highest ranking university in Belgium.

Since 2007 it is among the top 10 most highly regarded international institutions, according to The Scientist's Best Places to Work in Academia Ranking. 

At AGConsult we are proud to be working closely with Ghent University for over 10 years.

The university calls upon our expertise for its web strategy, information architecture and usability . Together, we have worked on their web site, intranet, faculty web sites and online helpdesk. We were intensely involved in the redesign of the university website and corporate identity. We designed, among others, the structure of the new web site. And we fine-tuned the concept of various page types. Based on workshops and multiple rounds of user testing.

All web editors at Ghent University get a basic usability and web writing training by AGConsult.
