Accommodation, eating out and events


We take care of varied extracurricular activities – each new academic year begins with the Welcome week, which is originally dedicated to the freshers. An obligatory part of each academic year are the Fresher's party, where beginners are welcomed into the student life, and the Faculty Day, when students and lecturers visit various institutions, then close the day with a pre-new year party. As a part of the learning process, students taking Management of events course have to organise an event by themselves. The party of the year is undoubtedly taking place at Turizmijada – an international congress of students of tourism and hotel industry taking place in Budva, Montenegro.
