Slovakia is a progressive and dynamic country, but also a traditional one, and thus very diverse. The society has gone through dynamic changes in the last 2 – 3 decades. From central economic planning to a fully open market economy, Slovakia is now the biggest car producing country (per capita) in the world. Slovakia – or the ‘Little Big Country’ as we say – has been a member state of the European Union since 2004. It is located in the heart of Europe, with the Danube River on the West-South and with the border to Ukraine in the East. Studying in Slovakia is not only about a professional career, it is also about getting to know the country, the culture, the nature. Slovak universities offer their students a lot of extracurricular activities, especially when student organisations are involved – you can do sports, sing in a choir, go hiking in the mountains with other students and much more.
STUDY IN EUROPE
Education in Europe is a combination of high academic standards, centuries-old traditions and consistent quality. It was in European universities that the foundations of higher education were laid, which were later adopted by universities in the New World. It is worth noting that education in Europe is not always worth a lot of money: there are many programs and directions that are quite accessible to applicants with an average income.
European universities provide a fundamental education: this is both theoretical knowledge and practical skills. That is why graduates of European universities are highly valued in the labor market. Diplomas of European universities are in demand all over the world.
In addition, in European educational institutions they provide knowledge that contributes to the development of personality, broadening the horizons and worldview. After graduating from a European university, a former student does not stop learning: the craving for knowledge, for a new one is inculcated for life.
University campuses in Europe, as a rule, are located in beautiful ancient cities with a rich history and magnificent architecture. Graduates of European universities are fluent in one or two foreign languages.
