More about the Conference
This Student Conference is a joint initiative of the Jagiellonian Language Center and a University faculty as an example of best practice and one of possible ways of cooperation between these University units. It is organized within the Teaching Quality Week (Tydzień Jakości Kształcenia) held at our University.
The Conference Student–Speakers (i.e., Students who deliver talks) will receive a certificate of attendance and will be given an opportunity to take part in a 30-hour language course free of charge. The language course (other than English) can be chosen from the JCJ lektoraty offer for the summer term of 2017/2018 or for the subsequent academic year.

All registered Conference participants (i.e., the audience) will be given a certificate of attendance.
We are looking forward to your attendance at this unique academic event.
