Excursion for exchange students

Dear exchange students, 

Tutors for exchange students are organising an excursion for you. It will take place on Saturday, 5th of December. You need to apply to this email, the price is €15. You will find all the information in the attachment.

Usually these trips are very fun and you get to see parts of Slovenia that you would probably not get organised and visit by yourselves. The space is limited to 50 people, so be quick to apply.
The trip is intended for exchange students studying at the Faculty of Arts and their tutors, so if you have friends from other faculties that would like to apply, they will be on the waiting list and if there is any space left, they can come with us.
