Latin was the language of instruction when Ghent was founded in 1817. That changed to French when Belgium won independence in 1830, and changed again to Dutch in 1930. It has 132 departments in 11 faculties and five doctoral schools scattered across the ancient Flemish city, with around 2,000 academic staff looking after 31,200 students.
