Inside BEST

Trainshops,
soft and hard skill trainings

BEST is a social-skill powerhouse offering our students skills they can not get in their regular study. There is a plethora of so-called “Trainshop” courses on a variety of topics. All those trainings are voluntary; but trust us, once you go to one, you’re going to want to go to many more.

General Assembly, Regional Meetings, Committees and Workshops

These events provide the structure of the democratic self governance within BEST. Ever tried speaking in front of 200 people deciding the rules for a few thousand BEST members? And tried to convince them to accept your proposed changes?
There are also a few special Interest Groups called “Comittees”, that care about specific tasks, like the “External Events Comittee” (doing quality assurance), or the “Information Technology Comittee” (ever wondered who programmed the Course Application System? It’s them).

Jamboree, Cultural Exchanges, Motivation Weekends

Those are the events reserved for maximum fun!
Jamborees are like multi-day parties and can get as big as 300 people. With “Cultural exchanges”, two or three BEST groups visit each other and have intense cultural experiences together. Motivation Weekends of other BEST Groups are also a very popular excuse to just drop by and have a party
