Farida Farajova, student at the University of Maria Curie-Sklodowska in Lublin, Poland (Maria Curie-Sklodowska Universiti in Lublin)
Maria Curie-Skłodowska University is the largest state university in eastern Poland, founded in 1944. The university has over ten faculties providing training for more than one hundred and twenty specialties, including International Relations, Tourism Management, International Communication, Political Science, and others. UMCS provides training for lawyers, economists, and artists. Every year they offer new areas of study, for example, technical physics or the East European Programme, and introduce specialties quoted on the labour market.
The university collaborates with domestic and foreign business centres. It introduces solutions aimed at intensifying the exchange of faculty and students with foreign centers.
Today, the exhibition presents all the opportunities it creates, including its entire range of education fields and scholarships - not only for undergraduate studies, but also for Master's and Doctoral programmes. Training takes place in Polish and English.
We have repeatedly participated in the exhibition. High school or undergraduate students can apply and win a scholarship to study. This year, four students from Azerbaijan were admitted; they study at the Master's programme in International Relations. And every year the interest of our compatriots in the university is growing. This is largely facilitated by the Eduexpo exhibition which promotes international education.
