University of Sopron Virtual End-of-Term Intercultural Event and Quiz

End of Semester - Cover

Dear International Students,

Unfortunately, the COVID-19 situation did not allow us to organise the Welcome Day event for greeting new Erasmus+ and Stipendium Hungaricum students in person and it does not allow to organise the traditional meeting with Mikulás, the Hungarian Santa Claus due around December 6 St. Nicholas Day either. 

In order to help intercultural communication also in these circumstances, we decided to offer a substitute intercultural „event” online and share a series of video presentations during the week after December 6 both in the SOPRON INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS Facebook Group and on the Soproni Egyetem official Facebook Page. For reaching as many spectators as possible, we publish the videos introducing different countries and cultures also on the university websites in the hopes that they will attract the attention of both international and Hungarian students and can support our efforts toward INTERNATIONALISATION AT HOME. 

To make it even more exciting, we invite you also to participate in the Intercultural Quiz following the videos and finishing the online activity next Monday, December 14, 2020. You will have time to fill in the Google questionnaire until December 31, 2020. 

Wishing you good luck for your exams and all the best for the next year!
