For the third time in a row, we are conducting a course to prepare foreigners to study in Poland. The course is financed by the National Agency for Academic Exchange and run by the Center for Polish Language and Culture. This year, we are hosting scholarship holders of the program. General W. Anders - 60 people from Belarus, Ukraine, Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan.

In the 2020/2021 academic year, the Center carried out an one-year preparatory course for study in Poland for foreigners - Polish government scholarship holders. The course, financed by the National Agency for Academic Exchange, was primarily aimed at increasing the competences in the field of the knowledge of the Polish language (in all skills) and transferring new and supplementing the acquired knowledge in major subjects in the fields of study selected by candidates in Poland. Moreover, the aim of this type of course is to familiarize foreigners with Poland, its history and culture.

In academic year 2019/20 the Center conducts a one-year preparatory course for candidates to study in Poland. It is intended for foreigners and the Polish Diaspora – the holders of the Polish government scholarship. The purpose of the course, first of all, is to develop Polish language skills (including all language competences) as well as to deliver new knowledge and supplement the existing one in the fields of study chosen by the candidates.
