    People, personalities, approach, environment, feeling of joy at the completion of an assignment, but also having fun while doing it, intellectual challenge in various areas, classmates. All those are highlights from my studies. BISLA taught me a lot, but not only in terms of formal education. It gave me the necessary skill for rational and hopefully also right orientation in current affairs and its contexts. BISLA became a part of my identity forever. I would strongly recommend this school to anyone and the reason for this is absolutely clear to me -- BISLA has no relevant competition in its field in Slovakia, one simply cannot choose better.

    Remembering BISLA always makes me smile. It was the best choice I could have made for my bachelor studies.  That goes as much for gained knowledge through a very effective system of teaching and learning, as for friendships and close relations with the faculty. BISLA completely changed my view of the world, I even dare say it made me a better human being. I heartily recommend it to any high schooler currently deciding what to do with self. Sincerely, I am immensely grateful to all who take part in running this school. While at BISLA, I learned what it means to have a professor, who perceives their work as a calling, not only as a profession.

    BISLA has changed my life in many aspects. I have learned a lot about how our world works (or actually doesn't) and met interesting people throughout the three years of my studies. Being encouraged to express my views supported by evidence and research, critically assess texts and spoken word and simply speak out are very essential in my current studies at Glasgow and havebeen used during my internships and work. The greatest thing about being part of BISLA was that I came to understand myself better, my own identity, my own history. BISLA is a place that makes you feel at home and is definitely worth a try. If one is passionate about changing the world or at least understanding it a bit more, BISLA is the top choice for that.
