What do the foreign students say about their experience?
Jeffrey Hanafie. Student from Indonesia studying robotics in Warsaw, scholar of Łukasiewicz Programme.
“I love the standard of the university here. The scoring system is very fair and transparent both for the professor and for the student. Honestly, the university schedule is tighter than the one that I had before, but I believe it is good for my development.
I could say that the life as a student here in Poland is quite balanced. What I mean by balance is you will have a good standard at Uni, you could find a lot of events from a student to have a good social life as well. Beyond of that, I am saying that Poland also offers you a lot of opportunities for internship. If you want to have the real experience of how the company applies the technology, you can just apply for it! From what I have experienced, various opportunities are widely open.”
Duyen Trinh Duc. Student from Vietnam studying civil engineering in Warsaw.
“What I like most is the atmosphere of the honest pursuit of academic growth. All university I have been studying such as Politechnika Krakowska in Krakow, Politechnika Warszawska in Warsaw, I receive happy smiles of people willing to make my study experience better. My supervisor is a person with a sharp mind, yet moulds my intellect with opening-mind. It is like growing up in a lovely family, with everyone taking together their best. The active participation of students in the learning process is also a so interesting thing. Here, professors compel students to explore their minds and enrich their academic intellect fully. I like it that I can think independently and share my thoughts with my supervisor, who then gives honest feedback.”
