Onboarding at UW 2021 – practical workshops for international students

Last academic year you participated in large numbers in our online workshops, for which we would like to thank you very much. Each time there were opinions that you would like to meet live on campus. We also miss you, which is why this academic year we are starting with the first stationary workshops!

Our two ‘Onboarding at the University of Warsaw‘ workshops are dedicated to international students and PhD candidates, both those who start their studies at the University of Warsaw and those who do not fully understand the structure of the University.

The aim of the workshop is:

  • acquainting the participants with the structure of the University of Warsaw, especially with offices and units that address different issues connected with students life;
  • familiarizing participants with the rules and customs of communication in the academic environment in Poland, with particular emphasis on online communication;
  • presentation of the DIVE model facilitating communication in a multicultural environment;
  • familiarizing participants with the dimensions of culture that affect communication during classes at the university;
  • exchange of experiences and discussion on specific situations related to studying at the University of Warsaw.
