What is a BEST course?
It is difficult to summarize a BEST course in one word. Throughout the year organizing the BEST group in Europe called "courses", usually two weeks of events where a group of 20 to 30 students participating from all around Europe. You pay a course fee up to 45 euro to participate in such a course. This includes:
- 3 meals a day including at least one hot
- Trip(s) \ company visit (s) including transportation
- Weekend trips
This fee does not include travel (you have to arrange yourself - live Ryanair!), drinks in the evening (often very cheap) and souvenirs.
Each course has a technical subject. There will be several lectures, workshops and excursions held. The activities related to the subject are about 20 hours per week.
20 hours per week of educational activities! So, what are the remaining 148 hours? That time is mainly to social activities, crazy parties, weekend trips, sports, games, and much more. Also think of camp fires, international drinks and romantic sessions.
Does this sound interesting enough? Then it's time to sign up!
