S&A Success Stories - August 2023
GeoTech 2023-2025: Pre-Departure Session
Abran Idrees, PR for Geotech, organised a Pre-Departure Session on 27th July 2023 for the 2023-2025 Geotechcohort. Coordinators and administrative staff of the Geotech consortium also participated in the session. The principal objective of the session was to discuss common queries for students travelling to Europe for the first time.
The GeoTech consortium provided the necessary information to arrange new students' travel plans, basic do's and don'ts of destination countries, and initial procedures to follow after reaching the first host university city, like opening bank accounts, registration to city council, etc. GeoTech ambassadors shared their experiences regarding what to do before travelling and once students arrive at their respective host universities. There were discussions on future prospects and job opportunities. Hopefully, the session helped the incoming GeoTech students with their travel plans and initial processes in their host university cities.
