University of Gdańsk at a fair in Sheffield
On 2 November 2017 the University of Sheffield in the UK hosted the Global Opportunities & Exchanges Fair with the aim of promoting universities from across Europe. Poland was represented by Patryk Wawrzkiewicz, a student at the University of Gdańsk’s Faculty of Law and Administration, currently on exchange in Sheffield as part of the Erasmus+ programme.
As an exchange destination, Poland met with great interest amongst fair participants, especially when compared with other countries of Central and Eastern Europe. Those wishing to visit Poland during a foreign exchange included mostly students from the UK and Southern Europe as well as those with Polish roots.
The numerous questions asked at the fair concerned the option of studying in English. The fact that Patryk Wawrzkiewicz’s European Business Administration course is conducted entirely in English was an additional incentive to consider an exchange with the UG.
