Trust Communication Traning Institute, one of the leading training institutions in the country, in collaboration with Skarbek University in Poland last Friday held an open day forum, aimed at acquainting Gambian students about Polish educational system and their partnership with Skarbek University, at the Seaview Hotel in Kololi.

Addressing the gathering, Mr. Simon Peters, the Managing Director of Trust Communication Training Institute, said education is both cheap in Poland and of international standards.

According to him, the programme is open to all Gambian students, regardless of institution.

Mr. Peters, however, said the programme will also minimise the scourge of illegal migration by youths who undertake perilous journeys to Europe. He disclosed that more than 50 Gambians students are presently pursuing courses in Poland.

He also reminded students that education is a vital investment that one can give to his/her child, saying that parents are always happy to see their children successful.

He noted that university education and the cost of living in Poland is cheaper, compared to other universities in some parts of Europe.

Mr. Peters also used the occasion to thank the National Training Authority for their continuous support.

Presenting a paper on education in Poland, Mr. Wojkiech Duranowki Phill, the Executive Director of International Affairs, at Sabarbek Graduate School of Business Economics told Gambian students that his university is the biggest and the most advanced in Poland. He said that their tuition fee is cheap, adding that more than 1000 international students are currently attending the university. He said the university was founded in 1995, equipped with latest technologies.

Mr. Phill noted that the estimated cost of living in Poland is 200 euro per month. He said all students are eligible to work without a working permit during their stay in Poland.

He also stated that after studies, students can come back home and develop their economies and be role models in society.

He also hailed their partnership with Trust Communication as fruitful, saying that it will grow from strength to strength.

Meanwhile, eight Gambian students have secured Polish visas and are expected to leave for studies in Poland anytime from now.
