We are happy to announce that the SAIL for Students 2016 course will be again organized by the Baltic University Programme. Please notice however that as a consequence, students participating in this course will NOT receive any credits. We can however assure that it will not influence on an academic quality of the course. We are happy to inform you that participating teachers have just being selected from a group of 39 academics from 14 countries. Students will again benefit from the knowledge, experience, and enthusiasm of those 8 teachers onboard available for them during two weeks SAILing.

Now we are looking for the BUP students who are motivated, active, open minded, ambitious, with very good knowledge of English and curiosity to try something new, ready for a hard work and ready for their life´s adventure! We know that there are many such students and we want to award some of them with this trip!

The SAIL (Sustainability Applied in International Learning) course is an undergraduate Baltic University Programme course conducted at sea on-board the tall ship Fryderyk Chopin. The SAIL course is based on the participating teachers’ areas of competences and experiences. This means that each year the SAIL course is different with focus on different thematic areas of sustainability, such as:  Environment; Energy; Climate; Technology; Economy;  Social science; Education, etc. The course will be prepared and run on board by an international group of teachers.
