At the beginning of March, the Bakala Foundation opened a new space for students of secondary schools and universities to study, network, work on projects, or visit interesting workshops and lectures focused mainly on education.
At the official opening of the Student Hub, three excellent former Bakala Foundation scholars shared their valuable study and work experiences. Speakers included – Sara Boutall, an Oxford University graduate who now specializes in artificial intelligence, Kateřina Šimonová, a graduate of Harvard University who now works for the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, and Kateřina Velíšková, a graduate of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
The Bakala Foundation’s Student Hub in the historical Lesser Town of Prague is unique because it’s the first place available to both high school and college students free of charge. In addition to a stylish study lounge with WiFi and printing capabilities, the Student Hub also offers consultations with a Bakala Foundation student advisor, and a library full of textbooks for all those interested in studying at universities abroad.
