What new things we will find?
This year’s Fair in Brno will focus on communication with teachers and education advisors, who play a key role in helping students to find their future study. There will be a specialized program of lectures and workshops for teachers and education advisors. Speakers will be various specialists from participating universities and the Ministry of education.
For students, there will be a new mobile app “Gaudeamus Guide”, which will greatly enhance their fair experience.
How would you encourage the students and the visitors for don’t miss it?
The Gaudeamus Fair is a unique opportunity for every student seeking a university or college study. The fair provides complex information about study opportunities in the Czech Republic and abroad in one place. There is also a wide range of advisory services to help even the most indecisive students with their choice.
There are a lot of different exhibitors, could you give them some tips?
I would definitely recommend stopping by the Czech University of technology booth, offering many interesting activities for students and a chance to try out a state of the art flight simulator. The Brno University of technology will offer a test drive of a student-built race car.
At the University of defence booth, you can take part in the demonstration of an anti-terrorist raid by a special forces unit and when you get tired, you can grab an ice-cream made with liquid nitrogen at the Institute of the chemical technology booth.
