Several events upcoming during the year offer students of the University of Applied Science Stralsund the opportunity to not only study and learn at a beautiful place, but also to enjoy their time in Stralsund in various different ways. The range of events offered is spread from those with an educational background to those combining precious knowledge with unforgettable experiences to those simply introduced for fun purposes, enhancing students’ leisure time.

The Baltic Sea Forum, an international symposium organised by students of the third semester BMS, celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2014, enjoying great popularity and good reputation not only in the region of Mecklenburg-West Pomerania but also worldwide.

Once a year, speakers from all over the world are invited to present their view on topics concerning (inter)national economic problems or current economic issues, providing a variety of perceptions. The symposium gives students the chance to extend their knowledge and to prove their practical organisational abilities by taking care of the whole preparations for as well as of the event itself.

History of the Baltic Sea Forum

As a special highlight reserved for BMS students and respective professors only, the BMS Christmas party has to be pointed out. This nice get-together in December in familiar atmosphere emphasises the team spirit amongst our “BMS family” and serves the common celebration of the Christmas time. By having a nice chat, enjoying a glass of hot wine punch and taking a snack together with your old and new friends you will easily get into Christmas spirit. The BMS Christmas party is complemented by the party organised by international students from all degree courses.

Further events taking place all year long are parties organised by students twice a week or festivals, as e.g. the Campus festivals, when popular bands present their acts and carry the audience away from all academic duties.
