The College of Business and Administration in Lublin has seen a steady increase in the number of foreign students studying in Polish and English. Currently, a total of 849 foreign students are studying at WSPA, of which 144 in majors taught in English.
In order to meet the needs of the college’s international community, we appointed English-Speaking Students Tutor, whose task is to strengthen the adaptation and integration of the international student community, as well as to support students in issues related to functioning at the college or outside it. Appointing a new position, we want to increase support of students with other cultural backgrounds, reinforcing the college as a committed and caring place, providing our students with a sense of security and comfort in their new environment.
A tutor position has been appointed to Mr. Michal Furmanek, a long-time lecturer in the Management Faculty.
How can the tutor be contacted?
Due to irregular attendance at the college, preferred contact is by phone or email on weekdays between 8:00 and 16:00 and outside of these hours in emergency situations.
