Author: liga.tuca Date: 06.05.2013

Vidzeme University of Applied Sciences (ViA) has  received 84 applications from all over the world for the participation in the summer school “International Tourism and Event Management” taking place in Valmiera, Latvia, August  4 – 18, 2013. Most applications have entered a competition for the scholarships offered for the programme.

The summer school is planned as a short testing of the features of the new joint programme on International Tourism and Event Management. The plan of two weeks is organized in order to reflect the innovative and interdisciplinary aspects of the joint programme in development. This is also the first platform for common cooperation among the partners who will implement the programme – Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania. Apart from lectures, workshops, the summer school programme also features a number of exciting culture and social activities that the participants can enjoy in the green Latvian summer. This year the summer school period also coincides with the city anniversary festival of Valmiera, so the participants will have a possibility to practice their theoretical skills of event management in this large-scale celebration.

The applications are now to be reviewed by scholarship commissions and the selected participants will be informed by the end of May.
