University of Warsaw offers a variety of faculties and specializations so you can most probably find one that matches your interests. I studied there linguistics and I am satisfied with the practical courses. If you are motivated you can get the best out of this experience and improve your language skills. However, I believe the University should also develop your overall knowledge and attitudes, empower their students but I did not feel it is taking care of this area of personal development enough. It is definitely worth combining your Warsaw experience with an Erasmus one – you should not have troubles with the formalities.
The minus points of the University is its administration and lack of pro-student attitude I did not feel truly welcomed or inspired to develop my knowledge although it is considered to be one of the most prestigious ones to study at in Poland.
What I can recommend is combining your educational experience with the practical one by joining one of the student organizations. It was something that made my student time more enjoyable and interesting. The one I decided to get involved in is European Students’ Forum AEGEE-Warszawa where I met students from different Warsaw universities but also different corners of Europe and discovered new things about others and myself.View more
One of the best universities in Poland, level of studies is deviersified – can can learn a lot if you want and you will study on your own, but also you can pass with minimal grades and get your diploma with no knowledge. Very nice central library and good locations of different campuses. Teachers are ok, some of them are gret specialists but some seems to be ust randomly assigned to the subject they teach. Lots of possibilities for exchanges and volountary/student work. Generally, esier than western univerisites but offers a good range of different majors.View more
One of the best things about this university is the amazing library, which during exams sessions is open all night.
There are quite a lot o activities next to regular classes, a lot of languages courses to choose from and very good sports offer.
The main campus is very nicely located and pretty but unfortunately many faculties are not located there and then the quality of infrastructure differs very much, sometimes being quite bad.
When it comes to classes, it is nice that you can signup for many extra subjects that are not part of your major (such as a history of cinema or knowleadge about Warsaw). The biggest disadvantage is an oldschools style of teaching and testing but it also depends on the faculty.
Overall it is a good university with a lot of opportunities.View more
One of the biggest universities in Poland (more than 200 years of existence) with a lot of traditions and a lot of students. I’ve spent here last few years and I think it’s a good place to study.
The condition of buildings varies between faculties but through the years I see it’s getting better and better. Unfortunately, not all the buildings are accessible for disabled. Especially the oldest ones.
I don’t know all the faculties, but at the Faculty of Management, the equipment is in pretty good condition, though it could be more places to sit between lectures and newer projectors (the quality of those used now is not the best).
There are also some programme changes coming which is a good news for new students choosing this Faculty. I think it’s getting more practical, as far as it can.
Most of the professors are well experienced and have big knowledge that they want to share with students. You can see it, especially if it comes to marketing and strategic management professors, even if their exams are not the easiest.
Sometimes there are some struggles with administration part but it’s not something you are not able to live with 😉
Unfortunately, the Faculty is very big so it’s impossible to know everyone (even students of the same year). The same applies to the whole University. But there are a lot of students’ organizations that make meeting new people very easy.
In general, University of Warsaw is a good place to study and I would recommend studying here.
With no doubt Warsaw University is one of Europe’s oldest and most prestigious universities and lately they’ve been receiving hundreds of International students as they offer plenty of programs in English language, so that’s the positive thing about Warsaw University. On the other hand, the administration and International offices in a lot of the faculties seem to be pretty corrupted as the employees are not that keen to do their job which makes a simple blank paper to take about 5-6 months until they give it to you. So to summarize, Warsaw university is a great place to study in ONLY if you are willing to keep rushing and pressuring the working staff to finish up whatever procedure you want/need otherwise there will be huge confusions at the end of the day.View more
Perfect University with good reputation. By graduating one can find easily job. The level of education is very high, but professors do not give the knowledge to students. Student should study by himself, if so, will be enough to put robots in from of the whiteboardView more
