  • SIMS

    SIMS is an informal association of the IIS students. Its task is to solve students' problems, so as to bridge the imaginary gap between them and the instructors. Another activity of the SIMS is to organize traditional social and educational events for (not only) the IIS students. These events include, for example, the Welcome Party, the Christmas Party, the year competitions, the Karaoke Party, the IIS Steamboat, competitions with the Institute of Sociological Studies (ISS), lectures on current topics or an Orientation Week for the first years of the Bachelor's degree studies.
