On February 8, the Slovak University of Agriculture in Nitra opened its doors to give secondary school students and their families insight into the background of its six faculties. As a part of the Open Doors Day 2013 our visitors had a chance to see the university vivarium , botanical garden or the horse riding area (FAFR Department of Animal Husbandry) and participate in contests and other interesting events.
Students, parents and other guests visited our faculties, obtained information about the study programmes, admission procedure and collaboration of departments with domestic and foreign institutions. There were information materials about the study programmes as well as our university newspaper Polnohospodar distributed.
