International Cooperation at Andrzej Frycz Modrzewski Krakow University

One of the pillars of the development of the university is international co-operation. This area of institutional planning entails a variety of initiatives, most of which comprise starting and maintaining contacts with foreign partners, participation in Erasmus, coordination of teaching programmes in English, practical training, joint research projects, exchange of academic staff and students as well as organization of academic conferences, meetings with foreign officials, researchers, diplomats, events celebrating culture, customs and tradition of other countries (Ukrainian Days, Hungarian Days, Slovak Days, election nights in connection with presidential elections in the USA), etc.

AFMKU has singed over 100 agreements with foreign higher education institutions and has maintained linkages with various academic entities in such countries as: Austria, Belarus, Brazil, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Ecuador, Egypt, Finland, France, Germany, Great Britain, Greece, Hungary, Israel, Italy, Lithuania, Morocco, the Netherlands, Portugal, Kazakhstan, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Taiwan, Turkey, Ukraine and the USA.

As a part of the dynamic development of the international co-operation, the Krakow University has received the extended Erasmus University Charter awarded by the European Commission. It enables us to participate in the academic exchange programmes with the higher education institutions from countries in the European Union and European Economic Area. In order to foster the continuation of education abroad, the Diploma Supplement was introduced. The purpose of this document is to provide sufficient independent data on student’s performance during the time of his/her studies to improve the international ‘transparency’ as well as fair academic and professional recognition of qualifications. Additionally, the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) has been implemented. This helps accept on equal basis the courses taken at other higher education institutions in Poland or abroad in the place where the students decide to continue their education.

We have presented a consistent approach to the process of internationalisation of Andrzej Frycz Modrzewski Krakow University since the foundation of our institution in 2000. It stems from the need to face modern challenges posed by the processes of globalisation. We contribute a lot of effort and resources to the development of a multi-faceted international co-operation in order to prepare students to be successful on the competitive markets in Poland and abroad.
