When March first started, our University got brighter and more talkative, as students started the next semester of their studies. Among those smiling faces, there were 28 foreign students, who joined Lomza State University of Applied Sciences after having been accepted to study here within the framework of Erasmus+ Programme.
The start of the semester was the perfect time to take a look at the University's intrafructure, visit the Food Technology Hall and the Automation and Robotics laboratories, and to get familiar with the buidlings the Students will be studying in every day for the next couple of months. In addition, Students took part in the polish Crash Course organized by our own MA Barbara Adamiak, who is a lecturer teaching English, and - sometimes - Polish, too! The Students learnt all the important information they may need in the upcoming days, and many of them are interested in continuing the classes on their own. The Orientation Days organized by the International Relations Department for the Erasmus Students turned out to be a great hit amongs the students! Everybody was excited about the prospect of joining in the practical classes and learning from the experts.
On March 10th, Erasmus Students took part in the Integration Evening together with Polish Students. It is an event organized every semester to welcome the foreign Students into the University, and it allows them to get to know one another, as they are mostly coming from different universities and countries. Specifically with this goal in mind, the students were previously asked to prepare short presentations about themselves, their home universities, cities, and countries so that everybody could learn more about other cultures. It was a fascinating journey through many, many countries! This semester, Lomza State University of Applied Sciences is hosting students from Turkey, Italy, Ukraine, The Republic of Kyrgyzstan, Syria, Cape Verde, Yemen, Spain, Lithuania, and Romania.
After the Integration Evening full of insipring talks, meeting the departmental coordinators, and planning the next month, the students officially began their semester courses, and they are attending the classes they had chosen prior to arriving in Lomza. It will be a great opportunity to learn about Poland, Lomza, and our University, and all of the incoming Students are very excited about that!
Welcome to Lomza! We hope you will greatly enjoy the journed you have embarked on!
