A contact seminar under Key Activity 107 of the Erasmus+ programme took place on 23 November 2018 in the Collegium Maius Plafond Hall.
The University of Opole was visited by representatives of partner universities: Fujian Normal University from China, Universitas Muhammadiyah Malang from Indonesia and Pannasastra Univeristy from Cambodia. The meeting was organized by the Office of Research and International Cooperation and hosted by Halina Palmer-Piestrak, Deputy Head for International Cooperation.
The meeting was attended by representatives of international departments and scientific institutions of the above mentioned universities. The University from Cambodia declared that it would send students for Master's studies and shorter stays, so the rules of recognition of education and qualifications were discussed; the Chinese asked for a special English Summer School course for philologists to be offered.
The meeting was attended by the Vice-Rector for Research and Finance, Prof. Janusz Słodczyk, who presented the guests with certificates of participation. He also took part in working meetings concerning the admission of foreign students to the UO.
Living conditions in Opole and cultural adaptation were an important point of the talks. A special guest, Jack Reid, a Fulbright scholarship holder at the UO, spoke about the warm welcome to Opole and openness of the students with whom he is currently working.
Guests from Southeast Asia visited us as part of the Erasmus+ KA107 programme for the Faculty of Economics, Philology and Social Sciences, as well as the International Study Programmes Section.
