The International Centre for education about Auschwitz and the Holocaust has prepared a series of proposals for higher education students. As part of the visit to the Auschwitz Memorial Site, they can take advantage of a variety of educational forms, such as study visits and extended thematic seminars, including educational activities: lectures, workshops, multimedia presentations or video lectures conducted by experts from specific fields. The subject of the seminar can be tailored to the interests of students and profile of the University (among others, seminars about the architecture of crime, medicine in KL Auschwitz and camp art).

In preparation for a visit to the memorial site and Auschwitz Museum, students can take advantage of online lessons prepared by ICEAH on specific issues from the history of Auschwitz. Numerous publications and print items of the Museum may be helpful in this respect.

The Museum library also features a multilingual collection of books, about 30 thousand volumes and more than 2.5 thousand magazines devoted to the history of World War II. Students are also assisted by employees of the Archive, Research Centre, Educational Projects and Collections in writing scientific and research papers.

The Auschwitz Museum is also a place where you can perform volunteer work and internship. This form of cooperation with the Museum enjoys great popularity, especially among students who acquire experience in the preparation and implementation of projects in areas of interest to them, among others restoration, education or publishing. One can also be a volunteer “remotely", cooperating with the Museum via online contact.
