Developed on the principles of open exchange of information and cross-border learning, Global UBT Fest is designed to provide inspiration to the network by means of International Summer Academies, Forums and Summits, Events and Entertainment, Hacking and Competitions, and many Expo and Start-Up Zones.

The scope and purpose of this academic festival is to:

– provide educational opportunities to students during the summer months
– familiarize participants with UBT as a higher education institution
– help students to develop leadership skills that help them both socially and in an academic setting
– teach time management and other 21st century study skills
– understand specific best practices, through training and demonstration of them in authentic settings
– supplement academic instruction with enrichment activities that are relevant and engaging to students
– network with other participants

This year, due to the pandemic situation of COVID19, everything had to be organized virtually. Therefore, participants could also develop new and enhance existing digital skills such as the use of various online platforms, familiarization with AVR etc. Moreover, some participants could use this opportunity to find new ideas for working with or thinking critically about digital technologies and seek opportunities to explore them, while others could recognize skills they have already developed.
