Students and PhD students from foreign universities have begun a two-week visit to Toruń as part of the 'Learn, discover, enjoy - Summer Camp at NCU' - a summer school organised by the Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń. The project includes three intensive international education programmes in English in a hybrid formula.
The proposal will be open to foreign students and doctoral students, in particular those from foreign academic units with which the NCU cooperates in terms of education, science and research, including universities affiliated with the Young Universities for the Future of Europe - YUFE.
Each participant in the summer school will take part in the activities, which consist of 60 hours of specialised teaching and cultural activities, as well as approximately 18 hours of specialist module attractions and 50 hours of cultural programme. After the week-long online course, a further two weeks will be spent in Toruń. The programmes are divided into three specialist modules delivered by all the faculties of the Toruń part of the University:
