Report on participation in Education Abroad, Ukraine 2015

Between 15 and 18 of April 2015, Ms. Zenoviya Shits from the Centre for International Cooperation, WUT was representing the University at the international educational fairs "Education Abroad" in Kyiv. The annual fairs held in Kyiv are the biggest event of the year, promoting Ukrainian and foreign universities.

Exclusive stand of Warsaw University of Technology was traditionally located in the "Polish alley " and attracted great interest among the candidates. Even after working hours, the stand was surrounded by many young people, students and their parents. A rich offer of WUT educational programmes and the unique opportunity to study free of charge (based on certificates competition) each year attracts an increasing number of candidates from Ukraine, definitely the largest group of foreign students at WUT. In addition to regular studies in Polish and English, WUT conducts several Erasmus Mundus scholarship programmes,  which Ukrainian students greatly benefit from. It was also a great pleasure to host at the stand the students who returned from exchange programmes from WUT and those from KPI, who visited our university within the framework of summer school of June 2014 and are now interested in studying at WUT.

Promotional and informational activities of our university in the Ukrainian market are not confined to participation in educational fairs, but also include meetings with students and pupils in Kyiv and other cities, and the organization of summer courses of Polish language in WUT combined with tours of the university and the city of Warsaw.

During the stay, Ms. Zenoviya Shits met with candidates from a language school, "Slavic Languages Centre", a technical high school pupils of KPI and Physics-Mathematics  profiled high school "Leader".

During the stay in Kyiv, we also managed to establish many new contacts with representatives of schools, universities and companies to promote studies in Poland.
