Student Conference in Maribor - SCiM 2011

Applications are now open for the next Student Conference in Maribor that will take place between the 1st and 11th of July, 2011 in Maribor, Slovenia. SCiM (Student Conference in Maribor) is student conference organized by Student organization of University of Maribor. The department responsible for SCiM is department for international affairs. We organize a lot of projects during the year but SCiM is our biggest one. We can say that it has become a tradition that Student organization of University of Maribor organizes a student conference which purpose is to join students from different countries to debate about important issues of the society around us and to express their opinion through their critical point of view.

First SCiM was organized 14 years ago. Since that time we have been discussing topics, which are provocative and interesting. We have been solving problems concerning nationalism, student mobility and student national policies. We talked about integration of higher education and future of Europe, public access to education, student mobility, employment and unemployment.

This year SCiM participants will have a chance to choose from the following  workshops: photography, video, theater, art painting, improvisation, dance and creative workshops.

There is no participation fee. We cover accommodation, food,  and organization. During SCiM participants are staying in student dormitory and have 3 meals a day (breakfast, lunch and dinner). The only thing that participants have to care off by themselves is transportation to Maribor. 
We would like to invite all the students who are interested in student life, students who want to have a lot of fun and meet new people and friends to join us in Maribor. Among all of you we are going to choose 80 students, according to the motivation letters. Hurry and apply for SCiM to experience unforgettable ten days!
