Nick Provoost (1980)

About me
I finished my studies in international relations at Ghent University in 2002. After one more year of studies in Louvain-la-neuve (close to Brussels), I left to work in Vienna for 3 years. In 2006 I was happy to move back to my beloved Ghent. I’m currently employed at University College Ghent, where I’m involved in international projects, hosting of Erasmus students, etc.

In my free time I love to travel, to cook (mainly Belgian, Italian and Asian dishes), to explore the city, to visit restaurants, bars, theater, concerts, etc. If it comes to sports I try to swim and to do yoga on a regular basis.

Why Ghent?
With less than 300.000 inhabitants Ghent is not a huge city, but still it offers everything you need and expect from a city.

Ghent is permanently developing, without losing its historical past. It combines old and new architecture. Old buildings get a modern touch and a new function. The students bring in a vivid atmosphere. Here you don’t find a university campus, but the university buildings and the colleges are spread everywhere in town.

The people of Ghent can be quite stubborn, but not really narrow minded. It’s a great city to live in and a great city to explore as a tourist!
