The third international summer school of Educons University, “Urban and Rural Development in Practice”, was held for 4 weeks in July (from July 1st to July 31st). Participants of this year’s summer School were 30 students from Taiwanese I-Shou University and the City University of Hong Kong. During this four-week period, students were placed in a student dormitory in the Educons University campus.
The formal opening of the summer school was held on July 2, 2018. Ceremony has been attended by the participants, the organizers and representatives of the media, as well as the Rector of Educons University Aleksandar Andrejevic, PhD., professor Slađana Čabrilo from I -Shou University, and Theresa Thong, a supervisor of students from Hong Kong.
During the first two weeks, apart from the lectures, students had the opportunity to visit various cultural and historical sites in Novi Sad and the surrounding areas – they have visited the Petrovaradin Fortress, Sremski Karlovci, Perkov Salas, monasteries of Fruška Gora … They participated in various activities such as wine tasting and the Danube Cruise. In addition to exploring Novi Sad, students had the opportunity to visit Belgrade, our capital, and they also visited Vienna and Budapest.
Apart from this, students have been provided with a two week internship program. They had the opportunity to get acquainted with the work of some of the most important companies in Novi Sad – Radio and Television of Vojvodina, NS Fair, NS seme, Vega IT, Elektrovojvodina, Regional Agency of Vojvodina…
After completing the summer school, students were asked to fill in the polls and give their observations, comments and remarks. The results were positive, the students were satisfied with the program and Educons Unviersity. We hope for successful future cooperation with both CityU and I-Shou University, as well as with other universities.
