It is the first project of the nave (National Academic Exchange Agency) aimed at higher education institutions; So far, nave has had only scholarship programs for students and doctoral candidates – the use of several UO students.

The main goal of the program, from which CPW has gained money is to support our university and its research bodies by funding projects aimed at their promotion abroad. In this way, nave wants to activate the scientific entities towards a modern and effective promotion of their educational and scientific offer beyond the borders of Poland and contribute to the creation of effective ways of acquiring foreign candidates for Studies and faculty.

CPW as a UO unit is currently implementing a third project aimed at supporting foreigners staying in Poland. In turn, the nave project will enable more effective promotion of the University of Opole abroad.

The project envisages a m.in. Advertising campaign on social media, creation of films showing the attractive form of Poland, region, university and conditions for studying for foreigners, preparation of information and promotional materials, as well as organization of trips For Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Moldova and Kazakhstan.

Projects aimed at the integration of foreigners in Poland and the promotion of the conditions of studying and staying in Opole are an important element of the internationalisation of the university, which gives results-evidence of this high position of the University of Opole among Polish universities When it comes to internationalization.
