Through educational counselling we aim to support future students by helping them with:
- choosing their Bachelor’s degree studies;
- choosing their Master’s degree studies;
- choosing educational opportunities (practice internships, grants abroad etc.);
This project is meant for high school students who wish to join a faculty. Within this caravan, presentations are held about what a career plan means, or a career decision, about how important self-knowledge is when it comes to choosing a faculty. Within specific seminars we talk about what career education ensues and we promote the educational offer of the University of Bucharest.
The Different Week at the University of Bucharest
This project implies the development of non-formal activities for high school students and others.
Every year, our visitors have been students of prestigious high schools in the country and of course, in Bucharest. The students ask for information regarding the study programmes, the credit system, the rules of the University of Bucharest, they ask about lodging, about how grants are awarded, about the libraries which exist in the University, about NGOs in order to perform volunteering activities, and about the academic life; they receive orientation and educational counselling, career counselling, as well as career education and information. Each meeting has ended in sessions of various questions and answers.
The Students – Alternative Lodging project has seen great success among students, as more and more join this programme. Through partnerships with private universities and companies which own private dormitories, the students who do not have accommodation within the University campus are directed to other lodging places, private dormitories, apartments or hosts. Every year there are approximately 400 students who use this type of services.
Through professional counselling we contribute to the planning of the direction of the students’ and of the graduates’ careers by mainly focusing on:
- Identifying the professional interests and the abilities through specific screenings
- Assistance in the creation of the instruments used to search for a job: a CV, a motivation letter
- Training for selection interviews for jobs
- Support in taking decisions regarding the career and in creating a personalized plan
- The identification of opportunities to develop the abilities and competences necessary on the labour market
UB Career Days
Within this programme there are presentations of well-known figures in the field, workshops for personal and professional development as well as other events meant to prepare the students for “the confrontation” with the labour market. Having reached its 6th edition, we are determined to make this event a tradition in the University of Bucharest, just as it was with the UB Education Fair.
THE LIVING LIBRARY – Chatting to Successful People
The Living Library works similar to a normal library, where readers borrow books in which they are interested and read them in a limited time, after which they return them to the library keeper for them to be made available to other people who wish to read them. There is nothing special until now, but…
At the Living Library, books come alive. The pages full of stories the reader browses are nothing else but the personal experiences which those who took the role of “books” choose to share during a relaxing conversation with their “readers”.
Within the career event “THE LIVING LIBRARY – Chatting to Successful People”, the “books” are represented by professionals from different fields of activities who are invited to tell their story in a direct dialogue with the “readers”, who are the students.
