Online Welcome Week

Dear Students!
The new academic year 2020/2021 is ahead of us. For many of you,
it will be the beginning of your student adventure with the Univer-
sity of Warsaw, for others it will be a continuation. This upcoming
academic year will be different for all of us. We all need to face the
challenges of living and studying in a pandemic. Above all, we need
to take on the challenge of maintaining the continuity of high-level
education and academic research.
We can assure you that the Rector’s Team will support you strong-
ly, ensuring optimal conditions for your development not only in
the upcoming academic year. We want online classes to be a useful
supplement to your study process, an opportunity to improve your
competences and expand your knowledge. We would like everyone
to feel good at our University and to be sure that it is the best place
to shape their future.
To guarantee this, we will begin a reform of digital tools used at the
University of Warsaw. We have no doubts that the digitalization of
our University is a process that must accelerate to catch up with cur-
rent standards. We hope that you will also be actively involved in this
process and that the new reality will also reflect your experiences,
expectations and needs.
We encourage you to take advantage of all the opportunities that
studying at the University of Warsaw offers and to actively partici –
pate in the life of our University. We are convinced that the upcom-
ing academic year will bring many opportunities to undertake new
initiatives and develop existing ones.We wish you good studies and constant enthusiasm in achieving your
goals!
With best regards,
Rector and Vice-Rectors
of the University of Warsaw
