International
Strategy


At SWPS University, we are a diverse community representing many nations, cultures and languages. We believe that this diversity contributes to our strength and the unique identity of our university.

.

International
Mission

Our International Mission rests on two pillars: working towards wide recognition of SWPS University outside of Poland and creating diverse environment for our students to thrive and reach their full potential, and also providing opportunities for our faculty to fully benefit from global collaborations. We believe that international exposure is of great value to students and faculty alike, and that cooperation of scholars across countries and cultures is the foundation of modern science. The International Strategy of our University reflects this belief.

Review our International Strategy 2017-2022

Our goals:

Building the position and image of SWPS University abroad

  • To build a consistent and attractive image of SWPS University for international clients
  • To expand learning opportunities for international students at SWPS University
  • To support international engagement of SWPS University’s researchers

Development of SWPS University as an open and multicultural organization shaping enlightened citizens of the international community

  • To enable SWPS University’s students to gain extensive international experience
  • To create ample opportunities for SWPS University students to work and socialize with representatives of different nationalities, cultures and religions
  • To overcome any signs of discrimination, xenophobia, racism and intolerance on and off campus

Projects supporting internationalization
of SWPS University

SWPS University engages in numerous initiatives propelling our University to become a truly international institution. We participate in several programs aimed at internationalization of Polish universities financed by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education, and Polish National Agency for Academic Exchange (NAWA), such as “International Alumni”, “Masters of Didactics”, and “International Accreditations”.

As part of the accreditations program, financed by the European Social Fund’s Knowledge Education Development Program, SWPS University, as the first higher education institution in Poland, has been recognized for its changemaking efforts with a Journey to Changemaker Certificate (J2CC) by Ashoka.

International mobility
of students and faculty

Providing international exchange opportunities for our students, academics, researchers, and administrative staff through mobility programs is one of the key tools for implementing our International Strategy. Our Erasmus+ network includes more than 80 partners in EU and around the world. Additionally, we have established long-standing cooperation, based on tuition waiver, with some 20 universities in China, Canada, Republic of Korea, or the United States.

Every year, close to a hundred students of SWPS University spend one semester abroad, and an equal number of students from around the world come to SWPS University on exchange programs. The mobility of our faculty is supported through various programs, including research visits, teaching internships, and study visits to generate new partnerships.
