Within the framework of the Erasmus+ program, 9 UOD students had the opportunity to travel to the Polish city of Nysa between April 24-28, 2023.


9 students and 2 professors from our University participated in a one-week mobility within the framework of the Erasmus+ BIP Program coordinated by the University of Applied Sciences in Nysa, Poland. The Hungarian and Polish representatives, together with fellow students from the Mittweida Hochschule - University of Applied Sciences (Germany) had the opportunity to acquire knowledge in a foreign language (English), to develop their language skills, to solve tasks in an international environment,  in addition to all this, to build relationships with foreign students in their free time and get to know the customs, culture, food and drinks of a new country. However, the project week was preceded throughout the semester by an online learning process of knowledge related to the subject of International Economics, which was taught by one instructor from each of the 3 partner institutions.



We asked the participating students to summarize their experience in Nysa:


"The programme and trip to Nysa officially started on Monday 24 April, but we left on Sunday so that we could be well rested for the classes and activities starting on Monday.


On Monday, the programme started with a welcome from the organisers and teachers, and after a short break, we attended the first lecture. Afterwards we had a few hours of free time to explore the city and in the evening we attended the Integration Party. After some time everyone was free and we had a great evening together with the German and Polish students.



The next day, we had class from 9am, so after a quick get-ready we walked together to the university, which was about a 10-minute walk from our accommodation. After the morning lecture, we took a half hour break and then it was time for the second lecture of the day. After hearing about some exciting topics, our university commitments were over for the day. In the afternoon, we were treated to an exciting sightseeing tour, part of which we walked around and our tour guide shared interesting facts about the city, and the second part of the tour was a small train ride around Nysa. The evening was free time, so we took the opportunity to spend the evening with the other students again.


We spent most of our Wednesday at the university, as we had three lectures that day and also had the opportunity to listen to guest speakers from India on various legal issues. After we finished at the university, a few of us went to the local mall and to the lake, which was about 5 minutes away from our accommodation.


There were no more lectures on Thursday, so we had a full day of activities. In the first half of the day, we visited the Schattdecor factory, where we first listened to a presentation about the history of the company and its employees. Afterwards we were split into two groups and toured the factory, where we were told exactly what each machine does. After we finished, we made our way to the Moszna Castle. Everyone was free to explore and walk around the park and woodland area, as we were given some free time here too..


At this point our journey came to an end, as we left for home on Thursday evening. It was an unforgettable experience and we thank the University of Dunaújváros for making it possible for us!
