Welcome Day – sign up now!

Another year, another Welcome Day!

We invite all new international long-term degree-seeking students to a welcome meeting – specifically dedicated to providing you with all the information you might need as a new member of the UW community. You will learn about the structure and function of the University, the many opportunities it offers, the basic rules, as well as the University itself.


During the meeting you will have a chance to:

  • learn useful information on UW and living in Poland
  • find out how Welcome Point supports international community at UW
  • meet representatives of crucial Uni offices and find out what they offer
  • learn students rights and obligations with Students’ Union of the UW (at a meeting in English – an adequate information in Polish will take place another day)


You can participate in one of two stationary meetings:

  • meeting in Polish: 28th of September (Thursday)
  • meeting in English: 29th of September (Friday)

Both meetings will begin at 11.00am and will last approximately 3 hours (till 2.00pm).


Main Campus, Krakowskie Przedmieście 26/28

More information will be sent to you after registration.
