The AGH University of Science and Technology (AGH) in Warsaw received a special award to mark the 35th anniversary of the Erasmus+ programme. The commemorative statuette was presented to AGH Rector Professor Jerzy Lis during the 5th Education Congress.
AGH was one of the first universities in Poland to start admitting more students than the number of exchanges (student mobility) provided for in the agreements. This is all thanks to the consistently pursued policy of the university’s authorities, as well as the implementation of the principles of internationalisation.
Erasmus+ is the most popular exchange programme at AGH. In the past academic year, 559 agreements were implemented at the Academy as part of the 2021-2027 programme.
The group of experts who funded the award also appreciated the fact that AGH is willing to share its experiences with universities in partner countries as part of the implementation of Capacity Building in Higher Education projects.
