Over 150 perspective students together with their parents attended the traditional Spring Open Door Days at the European Humanities University on March 23-29.
“The Open Door Days participants were mainly from Belarus, but this year we saw greater international interest of prospective students from Ukraine, Russia and also among Belarusians residing in Lithuania. The good news is that practically all registered participants came, which shows the high level of motivation among young people interested in studies at EHU and proves that our university holds an important place in the system of higher education in Belarus,” commented Head of Student Recruitment Maksimas Milta (EHU Class of 2013).
That week not only current but also prospective students could be seen on EHU campus. The latter dedicated their last school vacations to get to know the city where they would live the following several years and the university where they would study.
Over the period of one week, school students, at times together with their parents, had a chance to experience student life: attended classes and workshops, walked around Vilnius, met with EHU alumni.
We asked the prospective students why they chose the European Humanities University.
Natallia Kadyrava and Eugenija Logvinova, 16 and 17 years old, Zhodzina (interested in the Cultural Heritage program):
Here we have found the programs which are not offered by universities inside Belarus. There is an individual approach to every student. We like that personal qualities are valued here, that we can express our opinions and implement our creative ideas. This is why we have decided to apply for EHU.
Artemiy Martyniuk, 17 years old, Dziarzhynsk (interested in the Visual Design and Media program):
I have chosen EHU primarily because it is a Belarusian university, it is home away from home. In other words, when I come here, it is still like home. This was the main criterion. For me it is also important that the language of tuition is Russian. I don’t want to go to, for instance, Poland and learn an additional language to be able to study.
Valiantsin Duduk, 17 years old, Baranavichy (interested in the Visual Design and Media program):
I decided to apply for EHU because it offers excellent educational opportunities especially for designers. And it is not far away from home. If you can live and get good education in Europe, why not do it?
Kseniya Ivanova, 19 years old, Minsk:
EHU offers more opportunities than any other Belarusian university, and its programs are by far more interesting.
