Student Life in Poland

Poland is an interesting country for international students thanks to their very affordable tuition and their quality education. The country in the last decade has welcomed more international students than many other central European countries. Foreign students quickly find that life in Poland as a student is very thrilling and immersive.

Poland is a temperate region, there are Winter, Summer, Spring, and Autumn months. The winter months are not too harsh, and students do not have to painstakingly attend classes under harsh weather conditions.

Poland is also a post-communist society, as with these societies there are small traces of their injured past. However, the Polish people in the last decade are very open and accommodating to foreigners.

As it is with studying in any foreign country, students must learn about the culture and lifestyle of citizens in that country so as not to be offensive or rude. Foreign students must learn to respect the people and culture of Poland and carry themselves in an appropriate manner both inside the university environment and outside.

Polish is widely spoken in many student communities now as more and more foreign students are taking an interest in the language. Contrary to stereotypes, Polish is not the most difficult language to learn as several foreign students in Poland are good level speakers of the language.

As a foreign student, you would require basic level knowledge of the language for day to day activities or interactions with the locals.

Also, in Poland, they make use of their local currency, Polish złoty, instead of the euro currency of Europe. As of 2019, four złotys is equal to one euro, one dollar is equal to three złotys and five złotys is equal to one pound.

Many public and private universities in Poland follow international standards, and as such there are very many programs offered in English.

Student life in Poland is like any other European experience but with a Polish twist. Student clubs and associations are very popular as they have been known to foster cultural and social exchange.

Sports and sporting activities are promoted in several institutions in Poland. Sports facilities in many universities are very advanced and available to all students. Poland is a liberal society as well, so different lifestyle choices that are not illegal are very welcomed.
