Campus life

Kraków's location is unique for several reasons. In addition to having all the benefits of a large city, including very well developed public transportation, easy access to hostels and student dormitories, and numerous shopping malls and restaurants, Kraków is also very close to the Tatra Mountains (with many ski resorts and trekking routes near Zakopane), beautiful national parks—Pieniny and Ojców, and Dunajec River Gorge, which offers some interesting rafting opportunities.

Student Reviews

Not bad experience
Anonymous rated 3 out of 5 stars

An okay experience. The architecture of the buildings was beautiful. The university’s administrative services are okay. The professors are also good despite not having the required proficiency in the English language. Cultural diversity is also a wonderful thing in this university.
