Relocating to Kiev Medical University 2018
Study Medicine Europe’s growing portfolio of new universities includes Kiev Medical University where SME students effectively relocated to on October 28th.
The SME local team welcomed the students when they arrived at the airport and transferred them by coach to a local hotel to rest and relax ahead of the tasks at hand. The first briefing was held to explain the itinerary for the days that followed. During the briefing, real estate agents were there to discuss accommodation requirements. And, of course, since all students want to connect with their families back home, SIM cards were made available to them.
The schedule for the following day included registering at the university, taking a tour of the campus, opening a bank account and doing the required medical examinations before they get the necessary Residence Permit cards from the Ukrainian State Migration Service. Students were personally accompanied to view apartments and helped in settling in. SME negotiated rental fee and the terms and conditions of the rental agreement for each student and made every effort to smooth the otherwise stressful process of moving into a new apartment.
SME also organized a Networking Event on the 5th of November where students had the opportunity to socialize and meet their new classmates. Students received their timetables along with their Student ID cards and Student Books. Information about the city and university were discussed by current students who were also there to greet the students.
We would like to wish them the best of luck with their studies!
