Poland is one of the favourite destinations of the students of UCAM for their mobility programmes and the University of Wroclaw is the one that has had the closest collaboration with the Murcian university throughout the last twenty years. More than 150 students and around 60 professors have participated in international exchanges between both universities throughout these last two decades.
This special relationship is reflected in the visit of Patrycja Matusz, vice-Chancellor for International Relations of the Polish university, to the Los Jerónimos Campus, to hold a work session with Pablo Blesa, vice-Chancellor for International Relations and Communication of UCAM.
“The University of Wroclaw is very prestigious and it has a high intellectual, academic and scientific level in the European context. Its own Government has selected it as one of the top-five universities of its country. It is the first university with which UCAM signed a mobility programme 20 year ago and the result of this work are a lot of doctoral theses, international projects, important researches and academic and teaching relations”, says Pablo Blesa.
Considering the road we have travelled together, it does not come as a surprise the fact that the two universities have proposed new collaboration modalities: “We want to strengthen the relation and focus it on the future with projects linked to the field of international relations at an academic level. UCAM has launched the first edition of its Master’s Degree in International Relations and it is developing a programme for a Bachelor’s Degree in the same field that hopefully will see the light very soon and will be able to count on the presence of professors from the University of Wroclaw”.
Patrycja Matusz also highlighted the intention of the Polish university to re-activate and strengthen students’ exchanges with UCAM, encouraging its students to come to Spain: “Many Spanish students go to Poland with an Erasmus grant but only a few Polish students come to Spain and we want to change that trend”.
