The 9th edition of the competition for the best international student - INTERSTUDENT has started. Candidates may be nominated by professors, university authorities, student self-government, as well as fellow students. The International Cooperation Department is waiting for nominations until December 11th.
The competition is organized as part of the "Study in Poland" programme. Its aim is to honour foreign students who develop cooperation between cultures and enrich our Polish academic environment. Around 400 international students are currently studying at both campuses of the Nicolaus Copernicus University.

Active participation in the local student environment - cultural, social, ecological, sports and good results in science or involvement in interesting research projects, all these matter in the competition.
