STUDY DISCOVERY


We present to you the experiential project Study Discovery, which allows you to visit actual classes at foreign universities, meet your future classmates, and explore the city where you will spend the next few years of your life.

SUPPORTING TALENTS


In Slovakia, there are many young people who have immense talent, but sometimes need help to achieve their dreams. At FGE, we believe it is our social responsibility to help young people fulfill their dreams.

Why did FGE mentoring help me? The people at FGE and my mentor showed me that they believe in me. I also participated in other mentoring programs where they told me that I am not good enough for my goals. The people at FGE believed in me from the beginning. Today, I am leading my successful project, studying in England, and I am happy.

Michaela KNOŠKOVÁ
Mentee 2017

I studied civil engineering in high school, but during that time, I was drawn to management and marketing. However, there was a lot of respect for changing fields of study, so I was hesitant to pursue that path. MiniErasmus gave me the opportunity to try out the faculty “live” and experience university life for a few days. I am currently finishing my third semester at FMUK, and if it weren’t for MiniErasmus, I might have chosen the wrong path.
