Stanislaw Jan Michalowski, president of Maria Curie-Sklodowska University (UMCS), signed a contract with National Chengchi University (NCCU) on Oct. 14 to promote international academic cooperation, student exchange programs and set up plans for future collaboration.
Located in Lublin, UMCS is the biggest publicly-funded university in the east part of Poland. Michalowski said that UMCS has more than 60 programs.
“It’s our first time to collaborate with schools in Taiwan. We are excited, and also hope from this starting point, we can exchange academic knowledgeand research studies in the near future,” Michalowski said.
“Since this semester, NCCU can send two exchange students to UMCS. Likewise, there are two vacancies for UMCS students to study at NCCU,” said Tsai Ching-fen（蔡景雰）, senior staff member in the Office of International Cooperation.
Agata Zietek, professor from the Department of International Relations of UMCS, said that the exchange program with NCCU will help UMCS diverse its campus, now that the majority of its exchange students came from Ukraine for now.
