The Academic Committee consequently targets events where you can extent and deepen your knowledge and skills with constant reference to your courses. These include workshops with study related themes and contemporary news items, workshops which are designed to improve your writing skills, specifically in terms of how to best outline your curriculum vitae etc. We will furthermore continue the watch and learn evenings where study related documentaries and feature films can be enjoyed- this year exclusively with free popcorn!
Of course our committee would also like to give you a helping hand in case you struggle with the material and subject matter of your courses, therefore we will provide you with summaries and study weeks, so that you wouldn't have to fight over a studying spot in UB during exam periods.
Lastly we are keen to introduce a language café which would primarily function as an additional environment outside the classroom for you to extent your language skills while diving into some cultural experiences and enjoy some culinary finesse related to your chosen language minor; join us and experience a different way of learning!
All in all we have plenty of activities and events installed for you to enjoy yourself whilst targeting your personal development; so stay in touch and get the most out of the Academic Committee!
