What alumni say about us
Alumni Stories: Agata Łotowska
I had a great time writing my thesis, which I prepared under the supervision of professor Justyna Bugaj. I already knew a lot about theory when I was doing my internship. Ms Justyna gave me severe and valuable support, thanks to which writing the thesis greatly pleased me as I felt I was writing about what I wanted to do professionally. The feeling that you are an ambassador of specific knowledge is incredible. I wish all of you to finish your studies with such feeling.
