The graduation ceremony is supplemented with series of professional discussions where RGSL faculty members and collaboration partners evaluate the current state of the European Union. These activities signify that RGSL alumni, some of them arriving even from Asian countries, highly appreciate the RGSL family and wish to remain part of it!”
