The Military University of Land Forces participated in an international academic module concerning the Common Security and Defence Policy of the European Union.
From 22 to 26 November 2021, at the Theresian Military Academy in Wiener Neustadt, the "Common Security and Defence Policy" module was held as part of the EMILYO programme (military student exchange inspired by the Erasmus programme).

The module was attended by cadets from our University's 11th Training Company: Cadet Sergeant Krzysztof Juzwa, Cadet Sergeant Mateusz Neuman and Cadet Master Corporal Irmina Gromek, as well as cadets from Greece, Romania, Latvia, Lithuania, USA, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Italy, Portugal, Czech Republic and Austria – the host country.

There were 3 officers from the Command Institute of the Military University of Land Forces among the lecturers: Lt. Col. Piotr Pietrakowski, PhD, Major Artur Zielichowski, PhD, and Reserve Major Gustaw Michalewski, PhD, who conducted a series of lectures for the participants on border security and defence policy of the European Union, as well as evaluated student performance when they worked in groups. The module was supported by Zuzanna Stańczyk and Danuta Karbowiak from the Faculty of International Cooperation and Social Communication of the Military University of Land Forces.

The main objectives of the module were to learn, clarify its main aspects and integrate participants. Each day, the cadets worked in groups to prepare a presentation related to the assigned topic and present the problem to the audience to develop linguistic and public speaking skills.

As a conclusion of the module, the participants' knowledge was verified with a test. During the closing ceremony, the lecturers and participants were given thanks and the cadets received certificates and badges from Col. Harald Gell, PhD, the Chairman of the EU Military Erasmus Implementation Group (EMILYO).
