Two students of VNTU ─ Ivan Vorobiov elected as a participant, and I, Kseniia Ivchenko, invited as a co-organizer ─ got at the course “Build a bridge, get over it!”, which is held by BEST.
Educational courses are annually held in 95 universities of Europe, which work as local branches of BEST. BEST (Board of European Students of Technology) is the Council of students of European technical universities, a youth, non-profit, non-political, international organization consisting of 33 countries and growing rapidly.
In Vinnytsia BEST we annually hold a similar course, so it was interesting to see from the inside how such courses are held in other centers.
Ivan Vorobiov tells:
“To act as a student of the true European university is a valuable experience, which, in my opinion, each Ukrainian student dreaming to try something new should adopt. Owing to the educational courses from BEST, such a dream becomes a reality.
Most of all I was impressed by the teachers’ approach to the educational process. They communicate with students as friends and always help.”
After such trips no one wants to return to the routine, where every day as the previous one, where there is no such high level of civilization, where bike paths are for pedestrians, and people who graduated universities know in English only “Happy birthday”.
But now I want to evolve and change our life for the better!
