It was the first time for representatives of UITM, namely Magdalena Louis and Marcin Smulski, to fly to Morocco and present our university’s educational offer to young people who are ready to take up the challenge of studying in Europe. The representatives encouraged high school students – both from private and public schools – and students of ESITH University and the Civil Aviation Academy, to commence studies in Rzeszow, Poland, at the University of Information Technology and Management.
Presentations took place in the charming tourist city of Marrakesh, in famous Casablanca, which is the financial centre of Morocco, in Rabat – the capital city, and in the seaside resort of El Jadida.
For Moroccans, Poland is mainly associated with … Robert Lewandowski who in recent years made our country famous all over the world, especially in places where football is considered sport n
umber one, and that was the case of Morocco, too. On Wednesday, March 27, streets of Casablanca – whose population is about 3 million – were empty when Real Madrid played a game with their perennial rival FC Barcelona.
Having watched the presentation, young people asked a lot of questions about our educational offer, European certificates, costs of living, as well as weather and the city of Rzeszow. They wanted to know whether Rzeszów is a safe city or if Poland is a sunny country. Most of the questions were answered by a Moroccan, Imad Eddine Salhi, currently our master’s degree student of Management. Imad flew to Morocco to give Magdalena Louis and Marcin Smulski a hand with their recruitment activities. The University of ESITH in Casablanca, where he studied for three years, not only enabled the representatives to promote the educational offer to a large number of students, but also a preliminary cooperation agreement was signed.
What is more, the cooperation with the Mohammed VI Civil Aviation Academy, where flight controllers are trained, is also possible. Mr Menou ,the director of Academy, will pay a visit to our university in the forthcoming weeks.
