Traveling to Sumy State University for Medical Studies
On September 25th, students that chose to study at Sumy State University landed in Kiev International Airport where they were greeted by the country manager and transferred to Sumy city, taken to their hotel.
When moving to a different country, there are specific things that need to be done before you start your studies. The city manager was present to assist in the completion and submission of the registration form for the university and the purchasing of health insurance. The students were taken to have their medical examination and in the next days they continued with opening a bank account, apartment hunting, applying for internet, buying a SIM card from the local telecoms shop and, last but not least applying for a residence permit.
Once all students were settled and ready to concentrate on their studies, the city manager held a dinner party welcoming them to their new country and the SME family. The manager reassured all students that the SME team will be by their side for the full duration of their studies.
