About the Programme

The University of Opole invites you to participate in the English for Academic Purposes Preparatory Course, which is meant to give the international students language skills necessary to succeed in their further studies or career paths. 

It can be a stepping stone for those who have just finished high schools and need assistance and additional skills to have a smooth transition to life in academia. On the other hand, our course will come in handy for those who simply want to refresh their knowledge before they find themselves in the labour market.

Under careful supervision of our faculty and in a diverse and friendly environment, students will develop their understanding of the Polish culture, learn the basics of intercultural communication and get equipped with all aspects of the English language.

Our Goals

  • Our primary goal is to improve your language and communication skills indispensable for studying at a European university. We focus on English, so that you are able to use it effectively both in the academic environment and in everyday situations. You will also learn the basics of Polish necessary to live and feel comfortable in Poland. 
  • Our programme is student oriented – we strive to enhance the quality of education by means of individual approach and work in small groups, so that we can keep a close eye on their progress and achievement and rendertimely assistance, if needed. 
  • Realizing the trends of modern society and enhanced mobility of people, especially students, all around the world, we want to support the multicultural community formed at our university. Not only students will immerse themselves into the Polish culture, but they will also be a part of the culturally diverse learning environment, make new friends and gain truly international perspective.
