With an educational mission in Azerbaijan
Dr Eng. Grzegorz Kłapyta, head of the International Relations Office of the Silesian University of Technology, was in Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan, in November, on an educational mission organized by the Perspektywy Educational Foundation.
An educational fair was held there, during which candidates for all levels of studies could learn about the educational offer of the Silesian University of Technology and talk to a representative of our University.
There is a very large number of young people in Azerbaijan and the education system there does not provide them all with the opportunity to study in their own country. Hence the great interest of young people and their parents in such events. The offer of Polish universities is very competitive compared to studies in Western European countries and even compared to paid studies in Azerbaijan.
The Polish delegation also met with Rafał Poborski, ambassador of the Republic of Poland in Baku, and Jakub Piasecki, acting consul. The talks included the socio-economic situation of Azerbaijan, the efficiency of the visa system at the Polish consulate and the possibilities of supporting the promotion of Polish universities in this country by the embassy.
During the stay in the capital of Azerbaijan, a meeting was also held at one of the best university - Baku State University. The Polish delegation was received by prof. Elchin Babayev, rector of the university. There was also an opportunity to talk about possible fields of cooperation, in which representatives of the university authorities and Rauf Hasanov, director of the Centre for International Cooperation, participated.
Representatives of Baku State University expressed their readiness and willingness to cooperate with our university, both in the teaching and scientific fields. All those interested in establishing cooperation with this university, please contact the International Relations Department.
