I’ve studied on AGH for both Bachelors and Masters. From the experience of me and my friends, the quality of classes and curriculums varies between faculties. In some fields like telecommunications, energetics or automatics, AGH employs plenty of world-class trained staff ready to share their experience; in others, there could definitely be some improvement when it comes to presenting the knowledge and learning opportunities in more student-friendly ways. One thing can be sure – if you are serious about learning, here you will have many opportunities to find your way and gather knowledge in any field.
What has been most important to me – I truly don’t think you can find a better place when it comes to truly experience the student life. Kraków is a great city, full of the energy of youth, strong communities, and immense opportunities – and the best access to it is on AGH campus, where everything is condensed and easily accessible.
AGH can offer everything a young student can expect… and so much more! Totally recommend to anyone looking for a place to start their adventure with higher education.
I am studying at this university for 3 years now and what I can tell you from current perspective is that it was a very good choice! The classes are on a pretty high level, it depends of course on the lecturer. What definitely could be improved is the content of the classes which is often outdated. There is a lot of individual work during the initial few semesters but fortunately, later on, it is replaced by group projects which give the students opportunity to learn how to work in a team. But what I value the most about AGH is the community of students and its relation with university authorities. AGH is the unique place where you can find dozens of students organisations, science clubs and other environments where you can develop your skills the way you want. The university supports those groups actively which results in having one of the most numerous and divergent students’ community. If you are looking for the university with a decent level of education, practical approach to the things you’re learning and an exceptional students’ environment then it will be a good choice for you!
Let me describe it in pluses and minuses, from my personal experience:
+ Amazing students’ organizations, vibrant student life on campus
+ If you are interested to grow, there are countless possibilities to get engaged. For example in my faculty you can conduct part of your research in Tokyo, Japan; you can also apply to a masters program with Inno Energy, get the double diploma from university in Lisbon, and additional scholarship of 800 euro
+ In my Faculty of Energy and Fuels, really interesting research is being done, and there are options to write exciting bachelor/masters thesis
+ Campus is being invested into, and new buildings are raising every year. Some laboratories and facilities are really state-of-the-art
– There are cool options for exchanges, students’ initiatives, but it’s not easy to get to know about them. Sometimes it may seem that they lack promotion or are on purpose hidden by those who know about them but don’t want to lose their privilege
– I am generally disappointed by the level in my particular course; by that I mean that there are many students with extremely low knowledge, but they somehow always pass
– The atmosphere on studies is slightly demotivating; people tend to complain about everything, and few are actually interested in what they study. But it can be overcome by getting engaged in students’ organizations and clubs.
Fields of study: Any engineer-to-be can find a proper area for him or her. There is a great variety of them and they are well described and presented in AGH. Some of the courses are held in English but the whole vision of studying in a foreign language should be improved and adjusted to new trends.
Opportunities for students: There are a lot of student clubs and organizations, a high number of events that improve students’ soft and hard skills as well as those which are just pure entertainment.
Location: All the buildings of the university are in the same place which is very convenient. AGH dorms are right next to the university, so students don’t lose their time on transportation. The whole area of dorms is called Miasteczko Studenckie and this is one of the most exciting spots on the map of Kraków. The main building of AGH is a 15 minute walk from the city centre (Main Square), the most famous and prestigious place in Kraków.
I have chosen AGH because of its amazing student life and location. Those parts were as I imagined them to be – perfect. In the center of the city, everything you’d need is in close distance. Amazing atmosphere at the campus.
Quality of classes varies, depends on the lecturer – some are true teachers who spread knowledge with passion, and even if their class is hard to pass – you’ll still appreciate it. (…) And there are some who should be kicked out and never given any chance to teach, even in preschool. AGH isn’t perfect, but a title from this uni still matters in Poland. Despite all the little quirks it has – I recommend it to my little sister.
I studied at the AGH University of Science and Technology for 5 years (engineering and master studies) and it was a good choice. Although I graduated over 5 years ago, I would recommend these colleges to all those who are interested in technical studies. I think that the level of teaching is very high, cool and well-prepared lecturers. In addition, the university is still developing, offers interesting practical / laboratory classes, you can find nice and future majors or specializations. For this close location of the student town. I got a lot from my studies at AGH, I spent a great time there and I recommend it to all future engineers! 🙂
I studied at University of Science and Technology – AGH and graduated from it with a masters degree in mechanical science. I would recommend it without a doubt – In this place, I learned much more than I could anywhere else – and I write it as a employee in the global automotive company, where every day I have contact with engineers from all over the world. I simply know, that I learned and saw more.
AGH has still some fields where can grow – such as organizing more practical classes, where students could do things, instead of just theoretically learning how to. Also, with some many companies starting businesses in Poland, and really wanting to hire graduates from AGH, I think that University is not trying to work together and cooperate with them on the level that should.
Summarizing, AGH easily can be recognized as one of the top universities in Europe, but on the other hand still can improve.
