Q&A:
#1 What is the maximum fee for a BEST event?
The maximum fee is 4 Euro per day (but no more than 45 Euro per course). Whether a student pays full or reduced fee depends on his country of studies as follows.

#2 Why are the events so cheap?
The organising Local BEST Group (LBG) is trying to get as much money as possibly by co-operating with several organisations. The university is interested in hosting foreign students and in becoming more internationally minded. Companies wish to get access to European-minded students, which is done during the event by company presentations, guest lectures or company visits. In some countries, the student union also provides some financial aid.

#3 How is the selection for the events done?
The organising LBG gets all the applications entered by the students and then will decide on regional aspects (they try to get people from all over Europe, so they in general won’t take more than one student from each city/country), on your Motivation Letter (they have to read many of them, so try to be creative!), and maybe on your educational background (only if you need some previous knowledge for a specific event). The organisers also aim at having equal number of male and female participants. If you don’t know how to start your motivation letter, read our recommendations on how to write a motivation letter.
