WHY CHOOSE SLOVAKIA – FROM A STUDENT PERSPECTIVE
With a university diploma, the chances to find a job in Slovakia are high. International students from outside the European Union studying in Slovakia full-time can work during their studies for up to 20 hours a week - and after finishing their studies at a Slovak university, they can work in Slovakia without any special work permit.
Studying in Slovakia is not only about a professional career, it is also about getting to know the country, the culture, the nature. Slovak universities offer their students a lot of extracurricular activities, especially when student organizations are involved – you can do sports, sing in a choir, go hiking in the mountains with other students and much more.
