The EuroTour promotes – in the spirit of European integration – intercultural understanding and seeks to foster friendship between students of the University of St.Gallen and other universities in and around Europe. Throughout the two weeks of exchange, the forty participants get a unique insight into the hosting country by participating in workshops, company and government visits, as well as sightseeing and cultural events. Through these activities, the students do not only gain insight into different economic issues but also explore the way of living and working together in another country.
EuroTour was established in 1994 with the aim to provide an understanding of the different cultures in the context of Europe during the process of integration. Past exchanges have been situated all over Europe; this year’s exchange will take us to yet another interesting destination within Europe.
This year’s tour will take us to Ukraine! We are going to visit the city of Lviv (in german: Lemberg) and spend an amazing 7 days there. The Ukraine might not be the typical place to travel to, this unique opportunity to gain an insight into the Ukrainian culture through the eyes of local students, is a chance to get to know a country which was off your radar.
The destination for EuroTour 2017 is going to be Lviv, Ukraine! The Swiss trip will take place from 04.08. – 11.08. and the trip in Ukraine from 13.08. – 20.08.2017.
Lectures, workshops, city tours and company visits in both countries. In the last years, activities in Switzerland included visits to the parliament building, local watch and chocolate factories, as well as visiting companies like Hilti AG or Homburger.
Duration & Costs
The project involves a one week program in Switzerland as well as one week in Ukraine. The price for EuroTour 2017 is 750 CHF and includes everything in both countries (e.g. the flight, the accomodation, the food, all entry fees, the transport etc.)
