The University has one of the best lecturers for the programme, highly motivated and knowledgeable. Practice facilities are the highlight of the programme there are world-class and give a realistic feel of what one will be exposed to after completing the programme.
The offered modules are well structured, but the workload becomes a bit overwhelming at some point. A 12 hour day packed with lectures is extremely exhausting. The University Infrastructure needs a lot of work, more classes are needed including student discussion facilities. A 24-hour library would also offer students an edge. There’s a need for proper student representation to be able to facilitate student and university communication. It’s important to state that the university has some construction that is underway but we as students have no idea what is being contracted.
In Conclusion, the programme is structured well, with a professional academic team and the practical work offered is world-class. Naturally, there are a few items that there’s a need improvement, but these don’t affect the quality of education offered, with little effort and elbow grease I believe I will come out a world-class nurse respected by my peers.View more
Studying at VPU is an amazing experience and their international programme truly is changing lives. The teachers go out of their way to teach us in English and dedicate their time to helping us succeed. I do not like the fact that there are way more students than normal, which overcrowds the premises and affects our schedules as we have to begin coming in during the weekends and later in the evening. Students from places like Africa and India came to Poland not only to study but better their lives overall and work. VPU has a great load on their hands but they are clearly struggling with helping us and being accommodative. We can’t apply for work as our schedules are very tight and although the pressure is clearly overwhelming, even for the staff, we are overworked and the expectations we have to meet are still unrealistic.View more
As a foreign student, I was really surprised with how nursing is laid out as a program. The depth each module goes into. I expected to learn a little bit of first aid and then practicals in the hospitals and that’s it. The learning process is very thorough. No stone left unturned, there’s a lot of modules I didn’t even know about that will help if you decide to specialize. I appreciate the stimulation centre, it better prepares you for the outside world. Sometimes the pressure can be too much though. The classes on weekends, the short summer break because of exams in this specific program… there’s barely any time off. I recommend it to anyone who is willing to be focused on school 100% because really there won’t be time for anything else. And you have to be willing to sacrifice a couple of weekendsView more
I have been studying International Business Management at Vincent Pol for the last two years
What I like about it
-Very international atmosphere, I am a black student and I have never experienced any kind of racism here
What I don’t like
-Some lecturers don’t know English well so it’s hard to understand them
-Most of the time lecturers don’t explain they can just read from a source to the students
-I feel like the education here does not prepare me for what is out there
-The library is not up to standard
-Some staff can be really mean
-The facilities are kind of substandard
Overall, I don’t like it and I wouldn’t recommend it.View more
