Congress of Polish Student Societies in the UK is honoured to be able to officially invite you to the biggest Polish event in the UK – 13th Congress of Polish Student Societies in the UK! For its 13th edition, Congress once again returns to Cambridge University, one of the most prestigious universities in the world.
Congress provides a platform for discussion on the state of politics, economics, and culture between prominent guest speakers, and students from across the UK and abroad. Over the past 12 editions, we welcomed distinguished speakers such as Mateusz Morawiecki, Radosław Sikorski, Janina Ochojska, Jarosław Gowin, and Aleksander Kwaśniewski. Students from across the UK and beyond will have the unique opportunity to be part of a community which fosters dialogue between professionals, academics, politicians and artists about the future of Britain, the Polish student community, and the whole of Europe.
The conference will feature debates and workshops, as well as provide an exclusive opportunity to network between students and employers. It will be accompanied by many social events and parties, with the grand finale being the wonderful ball at one of Cambridge’s most prestigious locations.
