 Onboarding Program at SGH

The Onboarding Program at SGH is an initiative addressed to English-speaking first-year students from India, China and Ukraine who would like to receive support in the adaptation process in the first months of their stay in Poland. The main goal of the Onboarding Program is to help integrate international students with the SGH community and to make it easier for them to acclimate in Poland. Please contact Ms Agata Wierzbińska, our Onboarding Specialist for more details: or +48 22 564 77 75.

The key feature of the program is the assistance provided by a Student Buddy – SGH student from the senior year. The Student Buddy will contact you before your arrival in Poland and will keep in touch for the duration of the program. Your Student Buddy will provide you with the most important information related to student life – show you around the SGH campus, help you navigate student systems (Virtual Dean’s Office and USOS) and introduce you to your studies assistant at the respective Studies Office.
