The main activity of ESMug is to take care of Erasmus incoming students through the Tutor Program from the beginning of their studies at the MUG. ESMug is a non-profit student organization, which was created to support the development of international student exchange especially within the framework of Erasmus program. Erasmus incoming students should contact ESMug in the case of problems with accomodation, who/where/what/when and all questions concerning non-study problems (not related to subjects and learning agreement, etc.). ESMug aims to integrate students from abroad by creating an opportunity to meet and spend time together. Providing help and care to students during their first days in Gdańsk is one of its most important tasks. Due to the fact that ESMug and USS share an office, you can obtain ESN contact information in the USS office. CONTACT ul.

Resource Team is a mentor group at GUMed run by older students to aid others in their preclinical studies, admin tasks, and easing transitioning into university life here at Gdansk. We offer one-on-one peer support to younger years through our mentorship program and share personal experiences especially for first year students as they commence their medical studies which can otherwise seem daunting. For this year we have in store lots of exciting events, academic and otherwise. We have introduced the concept of interactive weekly quizzes and case studies on our Instagram stories. We’re also continuing the previously successful tradition of holding mock exams, this time on the university’s moodle (szkolenia) platform, in Anatomy, Histology and Pathomorphology. Moreover, in plans are multiple sport and cultural events integrating the polish division and celebrating the diversity amongst us international students. We work closely with other organizations of GUMed like IRO and Welcome Point.

That being said, please don’t hesitate to contact us for anything from academic questions to restaurant/cafe recommendations or even if you’re just looking for a friend to grab a coffee with! We are happy to be of help 😊
