On the 27th of September we welcomed candidates who are becoming UG students in upcoming academic year 2017/2018. Our new students came to Poland from China, Nepal, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Ukraine, Russia, but also from far Brazil and Mexico.
The meeting was opened by Vice-Rector for Research and Foreign Cooperation prof. Piotr Stepnowski. Officers from Science and International Co-operation prepared a presentation for the guests about University of Gdansk, procedures for international students, along with helpful information about the UG Campus, insurance system and health care.
The meeting started a series of events for international students, called “Orientantion Programme”. It includes e.g. a library course, a bus trip around Gdansk, Info-Point-UG and a welcome party in Wroblowka for all international students from all Tricity universities.
