Lielā ceļošanas kampaņa ir sākusies!

 Jau otro gadu pēc kārtas Dream Foundation Latvija organizē 'Lielo ceļošanas kampaņu' - konkursu, kura uzvarētājs saņem iespēju kopā ar kādu no draugiem apciemot vienu no Dream Foundation sadarbības universitātēm ārvalstīs.

Pagājušā gada konkursa uzvarētāja Viola Maido devās uz Stenden Universitāti Nīderlandē. Rezultātā viņai tur tik ļoti iepatikās, ka šobrīd viņa turpina savas studijas tieši šajā unviersitātē. Lasi Violas stāstu par ceļojumu un iespaidiem!

Ja tu arī vēlies piedzīvot ko līdzīgu, droši piesakies konkursam līdz 7.03.! Noteikumi un reģistrācija:

Dear readers,

I am a girl who took part in the competition organized by “DreamFoundation Latvia” and I had a chance to visit my dream university. I decided to go to the Stenden University of Applied Sciences, which is located in the north part of the Netherlands. I have no regrets about my choice because we had an amazing time there.

Firstly, I would like to pay attention to the fact that the organisational part of the tour was perfectly thought-out. We had no time to be bored. Thanks to Stenden and DreamFoundation!

On 12 June, when we got to Leeuwarden (the city where the Stenden University is located), we went to have dinner together with the representative of the university. Although it was the first time we met each other, we got on perfectly with each other, talking about my future plans, the university, my study programme, different experiences from other students, the practical matters, studying abroad and other things. Our meal was in a really luxurious restaurant which is located in the city centre. The city is very small and full of canals, which reminded a typical view of Venice.

A little bit about my study programme. I have always been creative-minded person and that’s why I decided to study Media and Entertainment management. This is a study programme which is oriented on active people who want to develop their career as international media managers. That includes all the media sectors: new media, music, print and audio-visual. You can also learn how to organize a job in a broadcasting company as a publisher, entertainment company or as an event organizer.

The most interesting thing for me was the structure of this programme – firstly, the model of studies - problem based learning. It means that students learn about the subject in context of complex, multifaceted and realistic problems. Secondly, I was excited about the practically oriented assignments, which help students to understand how to bring all the skills learnt from the lectures into effect.

The Stenden University is an internationally oriented institution with sites in The Netherlands, Bali, Thailand, South Africa and Qatar. The university has more than 11 000 students from 85 countries around the world. The brightest impression for me was the programme’s equipment and the variety among international students. Studying in an international environment definitely helps students to become understanding and successful group members. 

Media and Entertainment students have to study both theoretically and practically. For instance, I went to the local party organized by students from this faculty. The assignment was to arrange everything for the local club’s party. The students had to work in different sectors: financial, organizational, and technical. They had to think about quests mood, music and lights. All in all – they were responsible from the beginning till the end. This is the main idea of growing up knowledgeable and practically oriented students.

Finally, I would like to say that I have no doubts that this is my dream university.
