Moreover, DAAD awarded 20 scholarships for students of GMIT’s Bachelor programs. The scholarship is a highly attractive grant which covers a full tuition fee and monthly allowance of 200 Euro between August 2017 and July 2018.

Open days were held

In 2017, GMIT successfully organized two open days at its campus and each attracted more than approximately 150 pupils, teachers and parents. We believe that our open days are a great opportunity to come and see the GMIT for yourself, and find out about student life in our campus from the people who know it best, our staff and students.

We are improving our event organization year by year based on the survey taken from the participants. Furthermore, we will organize the open day at our campus regularly. The dates will be announced at our website and Facebook page. Stay tuned.

The purpose of the station is to monitor and inform by internet meteorological and air pollution data for researchers and for the public. This is the first fully automatic and comprehensive meteorological station in Nalaikh.

Data obtained by the station will be used for advanced student research, for the assessment of the environmental situation in Nalaikh, as well as to help to identify industrial sites in Nalaikh.

The station consists of meteorological and Particulate Matter measuring units.
