The inauguration of the jubilee academic year 2020/2021 will take place on October 7, 2020, at 11.00. Due to the current epidemiological situation, participation is possible exclusively via the online broadcast.

The inauguration of the Academic Year is one of the most important events for our academic community. Although this year, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the inauguration ceremony cannot be conducted as previous editions of the celebration. We however cannot imagine the absence of our friends and UITM partners on this special occasion. Therefore, we invite you to participate in the live streaming of the ceremony via our online broadcast. The inauguration will be carried out in Polish as well as in English.


 The official part of the ceremony will commence with a speech by the Rector of UITM, Wergiliusz Gołąbek, Ph.D., followed by a film summarizing the past academic year. After that follows the most important aspect of the ceremony, the Matriculation, i.e. the admission of Polish and English-language students and participants of the Doctoral Seminar to the UITM academic community. During the ceremony, there will also be distinctions and expressions of the words of appreciation and acknowledgment.

The inauguration lecture will be delivered by Robert Pater, Ph.D., Assoc. Prof., entitled “Economics in 2020 – should we rewrite the course books?”


The inauguration of the Academic Year will open the celebration of the 25th anniversary of UITM. The culmination of these celebrations will be the ceremonial Session of the Senate and the UITM Convention, organized exactly on the day of the establishment of the University (March 8, 2021) and the Gala during which we will not only mention our past but also will make plans for the future (June 2021). The program of the event will also include the Jubilee UITM Ball (September 2021). The calendar of jubilee celebrations will include academic celebrations, scientific conferences, seminars, open lectures, competitions, and art exhibitions, as well as sports and artistic events Due to the dynamically changing epidemiological situation, you shall be updated on the exact dates of individual events and their implementation.
