My program is English Studies with Japanese. I have been in this program since October 2021 (this is my first year). Overall, all the subjects are related to the English language, with different aspects of it. Teachers gave quite a good explanation during classes even though sometimes they would say some problematic things. Overall, the SWPS atmosphere is pretty friendly though. The part that many students didn’t like is the absence of the majority of the on-site classes due to COVID and, then, the invasion of Ukraine. Also, in my opinion, some subjects appear quite boring and unnecessary (in a way that I couldn’t see the use of them in the future) plus some professors are prone to the old-fashioned manner of conducting classes. I am, personally, thinking of changing my degree as English Studies no longer seems that appealing to me, but I suppose it is not really an SWPS issue, but rather my own opinion based on what exactly the course consists of. Also, more on-sight classes would be more appealing to me. Another thing to mention is the absence of classes on the Japanese culture – as someone who studies Japanese, such knowledge would have come in handy. The building of the SWPS in Warsaw has just been renovated and I would say it is pretty modern, has comfortable classrooms, nice cafes and so on.View more
As a psychology enthusiast, I chose SWPS as my university and let me tell you, I’m not regretting my decision. As you would expect from a private school the level of education is quite high- we get to learn about new experiments and have a hands-on experience in researching and dissertations. The academic staff is highly knowledgeable and eager to help with any worries. I could go on and on about the pros of studying at SWPS but I think it’d be good to mention some issues, such as low communication level with some of the teachers both in person and via emails or the indecisiveness about functioning during the Covid-19 outbreak.
Overall, I would highly recommend attending SWPS University if you are interested in psychology. Be ready to study hard and learn a lot of extremely interesting things tho!
The program constructs clearly and the lecturers are very passionate. You get to meet people from many other different countries like Turkey, Malaysia, China etc. The textbook needed for lectures is available in the library and most of them are in perfect condition.View more
One of the main advantages of studying at SWPS University is an opportunity to learn from professionals who have a wide background in various research, workplaces and specialities. The teachers aren’t just experienced – they also capable to explain the complicated material, making it less complex and more digestible for students. The only downside that I can highlight is lower than average level of requirements for passing the courses, which creates a feeling of not being prepared enough for the future careerView more
I liked that the course was challenging and really motivated me to want to pursue my future in the business industry. I managed to learn a lot from the teachers about character as well. I did not like that the schedule and rules were so fixed that it seemed impossible to work whilst going to school. But the overall experience was great.View more
So far it’s been great, it’s a friendly environment where teachers allow you to express your ideas comfortably. The course is quite insightful and the teachers manage to make it interesting. The fellow students are friendly and make it easier for you to share your ideas without feeling silly.View more
Swps serves as a guide point for aspiring psychologists to learn, practice and grow into competent professionals that aid those in need of mental/Therapeutic help. Overall the most enjoyable aspect is the constant increase in knowledge and challenging scenarios posed by the teachers and staff that seek to assist students to the best of their ability. Would definitely recommend to students seeking a career in the field of psychologyView more
There are many things that the university provided for its students. An aspect that I really appreciated is the encouragement of a lot of the professors to get us to apply critical thinking without hand-holding us to the solutions. This involved analyzing clinical articles, creating psychological profiles for both real-life and fictional characters, and several role-playing exercises. The most notable course that I took discussed Schema Therapy, which involved a lot of reenactments on real therapy cases, and analyzing how the theory taught in the course was actually handled in practice. A fault that I can give is not related to the university itself but rather the experience that I had during my final year. You see, COVID forces courses to be online, which hampered the practical exercises that students were meant to undertake in their final year. These exercises would have been relevant to develop their thesis. Instead, most of the focus went on theory. Right now, it’s the student’s job to pick up on whatever he learns and apply that in the real-life without any real hard practice. This is a bit daunting.
All in all, I really appreciated the psychology program at SWPS. It definitely deserves the good reviews that it gets.View more
Studying Management at swps university has been surprisingly beneficial because I am aware that is famously known for its psychology department but so far 2nd year through my studies I can say the management faculty is Top notch and the professors are very willing and the centre of student affairs are ready to listen to any complains or suggestions from all student. as a foreigner living and studying in Poland, I can strongly recommend this university because of how organized and ready to help all the professors and admiration is whenever a student is in doubt or need me.View more
The programme itself was challenging but it did give insight into the international factors of the business world. It would help anyone interested in that sector and it is very interesting and engaging to help entrepreneurs.View more
