Educational Fairs for candidates interested in applying for economical and engineering studies took place between 20.07 and 15.08 and were held in the five biggest cities of Uttar Pradesh State (Lucknow, Kanpur, Gorakhpur, Allahabad & Bareilly) of Northern India. During the fairs Polish Council team was actively promoting Poland and study offer of top-ranked Polish universities.
The Polish Council team was distributing detailed information about Poland, as well as the conditions and possibilities of studying and living in our country.
To strengthen the efficiency of promotion of Polish higher education, wide variety of marketing tools were used, including promotional tents, banners, leaflets (approx. 100 thousand copies) and stickers on auto-rikshas.
Despite the harsh weather conditions, namely heat reaching up to 45 degrees and monsoon rainfall, fairs were very successful. It was a very significant step for building the brand of Poland in India. Poland was the only one European country, which was so intensively promoted during this event. The Polish Council Team was warmly welcomed and drew attention of local media, educational environment as well as students participating in the fairs. Representatives of Polish Council were most surprised by the knowledge about Poland presented by some students. Unexpectedly, one of them was even familiar with the history of Polish Solidarity Movement and looked up to Lech Walesa’s personality.
Overall the average amount of candidates who visited Polish Council stands in all five cities reached nearly 180 thousand people. The Polish Council team numbering five members (Shivandra Singh, Jakub Bejnarowicz, Namita Singh, Wojciech Jurojć, Kamila Orłowska) stayed in the capital of the state Uttar Pradesh - Lucknow.
