‘Internationalization for International Students' : What Changes Have Taken Place since the Conference

In light of the latest events, we all want to receive good news sometimes. Therefore, we decided to share with you how the conference 'Internationalization for International Students', which was held on December 13, 2019, has already positively impacted students’ lives.
The conference gathered both international students and representatives of the university administration and became a platform for discussion and exchange of views. It allowed the university staff to speak about the activities of their units and explain how they might be useful to international students. Students, in turn, shared their vision of what improvements could be implemented with their involvement.
