Following a good tradition in our academy, the new academic year began with the Freshmen Days, during which they get acquainted with the leaders and teachers of the programs, with the capabilities and features of BIA.
This year, the general meeting of freshmen was held simultaneously in two formats – in person and remotely. Those freshmen who were vaccinated gathered in the conference room, and the rest took part in the solemn event in the format of a video conference.
With the beginning of the new academic year, the freshmen were cordially congratulated by Professor, Vice-Rector of BIA for Academic Affairs Zhanna Caurkubule. She familiarized new students with the capabilities of BIA, with the peculiarities of the educational process at the academy.
Heads of educational programs and directions Boris Heimanis, Irina Plotka, Marina Gunare, Zhanna Chernoshtan, Julia Mahmudova, chairman of the admissions committee of BIA Marina Lihushina addressed the freshmen with warm words of welcome. They wished the students a creative and responsible approach to mastering their chosen professions.
At the end, the freshmen took part in a tour of the academy. They have already visited the Central Scientific Library, the European, Latvian and Russian centers of the BIA and got acquainted with the exposition of the BiArt student gallery.
