The University of Warsaw co-organises an international conference entitled “Pros and Cons of Central Admission to Higher Education Institutions in Poland”. It will take place on 14th November at the UW.
The main purpose of the conference is to start a discussion among authorities from Polish HEIs, representatives of the Ministry of Science and Higher Education, and other stakeholders on the possibility to organise, in Poland, central admission for higher education, architecture of such admission and the roadmap.
The good starting point to such discussion would be to hear about the experience of other countries, especially those which participate with UW and MUCI in the EMREX project, that aims to support digital transfer of student achievements and in such way easy delivery of trustful data to admission systems.
Experts from Norway, Finland, Sweden, Denmark will take part in the conference and to share their experience and expertise in business processes involved in central admission to higher education. The participants will speak about how those processes are organized in each country, how the central admission came to live, weather it was a governmental decision or rather bottom up initiative of the institutions themselves. They will also talk about challenges which may be encountered on the way and will share with the audience their personal opinions on pros and cons of the central admission. The information on IT support for the process will also be mentioned.
The presentations will be followed by the panel discussion with the invited guests and the audience.
The event is organised by the University of Warsaw and MUCI (Consortium of Polish Higher Education Institutions)
Participants must register for the conference. The number of participants is limited.
The conference will be held on 14th November at 9.30 in the Senate Hall of the Kazimierzowski Palace (Krakowskie Przedmieście 26/28).
