The AMU Faculty of English’s patronage

Pyrkon is a Fantastic Meeting Spot for everybody, no matter what language they speak! That’s why we want for the program events in English to be even better and more elaborate. Last year the Faculty of English of the Adam Mickiewicz University, that agreed to become patron of the English program events, will help us achieve that goal!
