Erasmus+ Programme Is Active in 2020/2021 Academic Year
Due to the pandemic, the world has slowed down again this fall, but the Erasmus+ Programme did not stop in March, and is not stopping now, either. Following the procedures and restrictions, the Academic Year of 2020/2021 started with a group of international students from: Spain, Turkey, Portugal, Georgia, and Belarus.
Eight students from six different universities were accepted to study at Lomza State University of Applied Sciences during the winter semester, which is a bit out of ordinary for everybody as our institution decided to implement a hybrid model of studies. Some of the students who joined us this semester applied for a mobility in the previous academic year, but we are glad to be able to host them this fall.
Students enrolled in five different departments on all three faculties, and are attending both virtual and in-person courses in English.
We truly believe that our students will be healthy and safe this ongoing semester. We are happy to have started the winter semester with international students and we wish you all the best on this journey!
Children's Academy with Erasmus+
On Thursday, 21st of November, the International Relations Department organized an event called Akademia Przedszkolaka (trans. Children’s Academy) with help from students from the Erasmus+ Programme about people from different parts of the World.
The subject of the meeting was the diversity of people on Earth. Since there are students and employees from 7 different countries staying at our University, it was possible to introduce each of them separately.
After singing the original anthem of the Children’s Academy, the staff explained the origins of people from different parts of the World. After the initial explanation, Spanish students introduced themselves and began teaching kids how to dance the ever popular “Macarena,” while students from Portugal showed some football tricks, which both boys and girls joined on stage. There was some time to showcase Italy with its love for pizza and pasta, and afterwards everyone could play the Turkish game of cüce- deve (trans. Down-up) which is a popular recreation form for schoolchildren in Turkey. Yet another game was introduced by Milton Correa, a student from Portugal who originally comes from the Republic of The Gambia. The game was more of a race with an egg and a spoon, and children who were willing to participate had to be very careful during the transportation process. At last, no eggs were broken! Children also had a chance to learn a few words in Arabic thanks to Abdelhamid Mahamat, a student of Karabuk University in Turkey, who originates from Chad, a country in north-central Africa. Abdelhamid conducted his whole lesson in Polish, explaining how to pronounce phrases such as “how are you?” and “I’m good, and you?” in Arabic. At the end, after saying a few words about the United States, children could dance the English song “If you’re happy and you know it” with a Fulbright scholar Andrea Baumgartel, who is an Engllish teaching assistant at our University this academic year.
The purpose of the event was to show kindergarten students that – despite all differences related to our origin and language – we are all the same. As always, after the meeting, photographs were taken in a spirit of interaction between different groups of people. Thank you for joining us on this journey and see you next time! Goodbye!
Participate in the Erasmus+ Program!
On October 23rd, the International Relations Department organized the Erasmus+ Program Open Day. During the event, students and staff members were able to find out a lot about mobility options they can choose from. The department started the meeting by informing how to participate in the Erasmus+ Program, its advantages for these who will join, alongside with the quick overview of the procedures of choosing a university or an institution.
In the second part of the Erasmus+ Program Open Day, the audience experienced the presentations of Polish students who participated in the program. Two of our physiotherapy students who benefited from the program, talked about their stay in Athens where they were doing the training. They managed to explore Greece and brought some of their most precious memories with them back to Poland only to squeeze them into their presentation. Not only did Klaudia and Karolina talk about their experiences, but they also engaged the audience when they concluded their speech by claiming to have signed up for yet another mobility for this summer semester. Then, two of the Computer Sciences students showed the audience how they spent their semester abroad in Portugal. Karol and Hubert explained why they had decided to sign up for the program in the first place and they had hoped to experience during their mobility. They spent 5 months in the city of Braganca, and they are constantly benefiting from everything they learnt in the meantime.
During the next part of the meeting, the Erasmus+ students who are currently studying at our university spoke about their experiences and why they decided to participate in the program. The first presentation in English was showed by Abdelhamid Mahamat from Chad, who came to Poland from the Karabuk University in Turkey. Abdel briefed the audience with his journey to Łomża and spoke about the reasons for his decisions to seek discomfort in life. He promoted the Erasmus+ program and its benefits to the students present in the auditorium. After his speech, it was time for the last student to present what he had prepared for the meeting. Tiziano Pacifico, who is a student at the University of Molise in Italy and is currently staying at Lomza State University of Applied Sciences to complete a semester of his Computer Sciences studies.
To conclude the Erasmus+ Program Open Day, the International Relations Department reminded the students to participate in international studies and trainings available for them. Our university offers many beautiful destinations for students wanting to take part in the exchange program.
