Guide to the heart of Europe

THE TERRITORY of Slovakia has a profuse tradition of hosting scholars, scientists, and students coming from different countries, cultures, and traditions. In the past, however, a comprehensible and all-embracing guide for foreign students was missing. The Fulbright Commission in the Slovak Republic, the Slovak Academic Association for International Cooperation, SAIA-Service Centre for the Third Sector, and the Slovak Rectors Conference have published such a publication for newcomers to Slovakia.

THE TERRITORY of Slovakia has a profuse tradition of hosting scholars, scientists, and students coming from different countries, cultures, and traditions. In the past, however, a comprehensible and all-embracing guide for foreign students was missing. The Fulbright Commission in the Slovak Republic, the Slovak Academic Association for International Cooperation, SAIA-Service Centre for the Third Sector, and the Slovak Rectors Conference have published such a publication for newcomers to Slovakia. The guide features historical highlights marking crucial events that have shaped the nation's development and explains the country's political system, along with listing key demographic data. A list of famous Slovaks and a selection of the most picturesque sites to visit completes the introduction of the country. Students or anyone interested in higher education in Slovakia can find a detailed description of the country's education system and the institutions that are operating in the field. The guide answers all the questions that might arise from the very day of a student's arrival, seasoned with a brief list of useful Slovak phrases, as well as accommodation, dining, and travel tips. The guide, which saw light with the financial support of the Slovak Education Ministry, is distributed by the Fulbright Commission, the Foreign Affairs and Education ministries and SAIA.
