      The aim of the project is to develop and implement a new international curriculum for the Tourism and Recreation programme, as well as improving the accessibility of innovative knowledge, which serves to elevate competencies to a level which meets the needs of the economy, job market, and society.

      The new international curriculum for Tourism and Recreation has been designed, based on leading European and global curricula, in collaboration with our international tourism and recreation teaching faculty. The project encompasses the above-mentioned programme exclusively (one study cycle of 2 years) and will be implemented entirely in English.

      Starting in October, our internationalised Tourism and Recreation programme offers four managerial sub-majors: hotel management, event management, sports management, and gastronomy management. These elements have each been developed in collaboration with an international teaching faculty, in accordance with the latest trends in higher education. Our faculty members include Dr. Christos Anagnostopoulos of Molde University College in Norway, and Dr. Alana K. Dillette of San Diego State University.

      In addition to the above-mentioned benefits, students of the internationalised Tourism and Recreation project will participate in two summer schools. A number of those internship programmes include scholarships covering tuition or the costs of living.

      The project provides for 40 students: 30 foreign and 10 Polish. The group will be comprised of 50% women and 50% men.
