Study in Bari!
Last academic year WSZOP signed a cooperation agreement with the Polytechnic University of Bari. It is one of two public universities operating in the city. It was founded in 1990, almost 11,000 study there. It cooperates with our university within Erasmus+ programme in two majors: Management and Management and Production Engineering. In last days of October 2019 I had a chance to visit it. We discussed with the team of the local international office about problems related to the implementation of student mobility under the Erasmus+ programme, as well as challenges related to the recruitment of foreign students, including the development of studies in foreign languages.
In addition to excellent housing conditions at the Polytechnic University, the city itself offers many attractions to students. Excellent weather almost all year round, incredibly friendly people, access to the sea and the beach in the very center of the city, a charming old town with a typical atmosphere of southern Italy – just to name few of them.
Four train stations provide the opportunity to easily explore the region and Italy. Even after classes or work, you can reach picturesque towns such as Polignano a Mare or Monopoli within 30 minutes.
And just as important - it's one of the cheapest regions in Italy to live! And tomatoes and orecchiette don't taste better anywhere!
