The Day of Student Organizations is designed for those who want to further pursue their knowledge from the classroom as a student. Throughout the day, those interested in out-of-school activities will be introduced to the functioning and possibilities of voluntary student organizations. By attending the presentations of the clubs’ representatives, students can learn more about the programmes and focus of the various clubs.
