WHAT IS BEST?
BEST Veszprém presents:
How It's Made?
According to local legend, Veszprém was founded on seven hills, like Rome. The seven hills are Várhegy (Castle Hill), Benedek-hegy (St. Benedict Hill), Jeruzsálem-hegy (Jerusalem Hill), Temetõhegy (Cemetery Hill), Gulyadomb (Herd Hill), Kálvária-domb (Calvary Hill), and Cserhát.
Veszprém was the favorite city of Queen Gisela, the wife of St. Stephen. For centuries, the queens of Hungary were crowned by the bishop of Veszprém. The city is still often called "the city of queens."
Veszprém was among the first Hungarian cities to have an university - students studied law and arts here. The university was destroyed by fire in 1276, after which Veszprém became a university town again in the 20th century.

Learning, having fun, getting to know different cultures and people in one event, in one place for 2 weeks. That's how I could describe a BEST course in one sentence.
The participants attend lectures given by the university's teaching staff or by experts from companies. You visit companies, industrial plants or research centres and sometimes take part in case studies. Topics of the learning events cover mainly technology fields, economics, marketing and management. At the end of the course students take an exam, in order to sum up the results of the course and evaluate the participants' success.
Don't waste your time! Apply for a course! You are NOT going to regret it... PROMISe :)
