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.
The forums and summits are organized as part of the International UBT Fest in order to unite participants and explore topics of interest. In these forums/ summits, participants can learn a lot from the expertise of the presenters, share with others their ideas on elaborate issues, and discuss about the latest trends in various fields.
Hacking and competitions are organized within the International UBT Fest in order to unite people and encourage them to challenge themselves. During these activities, participants can learn a lot from the expertise of the presenters, share their ideas on the elaborated issues with others, and learn about the latest trends in various fields, especially technology.
UBT has fostered a starting platform for entrepreneurs to connect, showcase their potential and explore growing opportunities. As an exhibitor at International UBT Fest participants have the opportunity to present their exciting new products and services to a targeted audience, increase their brand exposure and meet virtually with their current and future clients and partners!

They are a great way for you to learn about practical subjects, learn new projects, and methods in order to better you.
