On the 7th of November 2019 Wageningen University & Research (WUR, Netherlands) had organised the annual Study Abroad Fair. Sofiia Pyshnieva, master student of Faculty of Tropical AgriSciences, who is doing an Erasmus semester abroad at WUR, got a chance to share her experience about living and studying in Prague. A lot of Dutch and international students were curios, how it is to studying at CZU, what programs are taught in English and how expensive are the living costs. More than 25 countries were presented at the Fair. Young people from Europe, Asia, South and North America, Africa were answering questions about their home universities and educational reality around the globe. But Study Abroad Fair is not only about academic mobility, first of all, it is about international cooperation and cultural exchange. Therefore, each country team was welcome to design the stand and describe the cultural heritage of the land! Besides decoration, Czech team prepared famous national meal - česnekovou pomazánku (garlic spread) and variety of sweets (Lázeňske oplatky, Czech honey & Studentská chocolate, etc). The stand was so great, that Czech team (Sofiia and Pavlina Novakova, student of Palacky University (Olomouc)) won a Study Abroad Fair Award for the Best Food Presentation!
