In order to meet the needs and expectations of the first-year students, the University of Silesia organises Virtual Adaptation Days. The official opening of Virtual Adaptation Days will take place on 5 October 2020 at 10:00 on the University’s fanpage.

It will be an opportunity to get to know the University closer – to find out how it operates, where you can handle the most important matters, what options and forms of support it offers, and a lot more things. During the meeting, the participants will be able to ask questions under the online transmission.
