Annual student conference ‘Foreign Languages and Intercultural Communication: Current Development Vectors and Prospects'
The annual student conference ‘Foreign Languages and Intercultural Communication: Current Development Vectors and Prospects' has been held by the School of Foreign Languages since 2016. The departments of German and French host their respective conferences annually as well. These conventions unite future linguists and well-known experts in the field in lively discussions of topical themes and current issues in linguistics and intercultural communication
Besides a busy academic schedule, we offer our students a socially rich campus life. Our numerous social activities and events may reveal your hidden potential as a musician, actor, stage director or a standup comedian. One of such occasions is our annual colourful and joyous Novemberfest festival, a joint effort of the first-year students, with some support on the part of other undergraduates. No less colourful festivities we have in spring during our traditional multicultural Global Villageevent, with our students performing folk dances and songs from a variety of ethnicities, and cooking and eating traditional food from various countries.
