The Eugeniusz Geppert Academy of Art and Design has extensive course offerings in English in all art and design disciplines. Students participating in the program will study and interact not only with their peers from Poland, but also with Erasmus exchange students from Europe and beyond. The academy typically hosts more than 70 such residents each year.

The UT student selected to participate in spring 2019 will receive a stipend towards travel, housing, and living expenses for the five months of study (February-June), provided by the Erasmus+ Program. The student will pay tuition and fees to the University of Tennessee during their semester abroad.
