BEST also organises seminars on educational issues, engineering competitions and leisure events.
In a learning event, participants attend lectures and visit companies, industrial plants or research centres and sometimes take part in case studies.
During the projects, the organisation manages the accommodation, transport and activities of the participants. Depending on the project there is a different fee of participation.
The maximum fee is 5 Euro per day (but no more than 55 EUR in total).
Every year BEST publishes on the official website numerous projects and from their site you can view the list of current projects available.
The topics of the learning events cover mainly different technology fields, economics, marketing and management.
At the end of the course, students take an exam to evaluate the participants’s success. An increasing number of courses are recognised by many universities and students attending these courses can get credit from their home universities.
All university students attending a university affiliated with the BEST association can attend the events.
You can access the list of organisations and universities affiliated with the association through the official website.
