The MUW aspires to a truly international institution and believes that medical training should have an international dimension, based on its high quality and supported by the scientific experiences shared by higher education and research institutions around the world. Participation in the Erasmus programme is an essential element of the MUW-Startegy of internationalisation and modernization, which recognises the central contribution of mobile staff and students as well as participation in European and international cooperation projects on the quality of their educational programmes and the student experience. For many years, MUW has been developing mutual cooperation with EU and third countries in Europe, the United States, Canada and Japan. Our strategic partnership concerns EU and third countries, capacity building with neighbouring and third countries. Since 1998, the MUW has been able to establish, under the Erasmus programme, a fruitful cooperation with 106 European universities from 24 countries. The university participates in numerous cooperation projects and Erasmus thematic networks on educational, institutional and quality issues. The MUW will maintain existing active inter-institutional agreements and conclude new agreements with both the EU and third countries in the area of mobility and staff training, projects and international cooperation networks. The main elements of the internationalization strategy of universities are student mobility and internships, staff mobility in teaching and training, participation in cooperation projects and networks as coordinators and partners. The MUW respects the principles of non-discrimination set out in the program and guarantees equal access and equal opportunities for mobile participants from all walks of life. International students who come to university are cordially invited to participate in all student activities, regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, gender, social class or political beliefs. The university recognizes the importance of preventing all forms of discrimination and university authorities encourage the representation of all groups throughout the university.
The university ensures equal opportunities for women and men and the student assistance system provides financial support to students with disabilities. The Warsaw Medical University makes every effort to ensure the quality of mobility activities and respects the principles of Erasmus mobility. Each student receives a signed and accepted apprenticeship contract before starting mobility. During their mobility period, students receive full academic recognition for activities performed satisfactorily. The implementation of ECTS in the university`s faculties has proven to be an excellent tool for recognition of studies. ECTS is used and used to facilitate academic recognition of Erasmus studies. The university provides a diploma supplement for all graduates. The program`s information is up-to-date and easily accessible on the university`s website to ensure transparency. Equal treatment is guaranteed for home students and arriving Erasmus students. Exchange students at our university can count on the research of their representatives from students and to be helped to integrate into university life.
Erasmus students have students from the beginning of their arrival in Warsaw. Our university`s ESN supports mobility activities and student integration. The university offers places in its dormitories, where Polish and foreign students can find accommodation. Transcripts of the recordings are made available to Erasmus students who arrive in a timely manner. The university is aware of the importance of teaching foreign languages and developing students` language skills, which allows them to participate in Erasmus exchanges.
