Student Reviews

Way of teaching approach
Provided by ESN rated 4 out of 5 stars

University which gives the opportunity to meet multicultural and diverse people, which enables the transfer of knowledge to the next level. Enabling more practical experience over theoretical knowledge can be improved. Overall, the university is one of the best in Poland.

not what I expected
Anonymous rated 2 out of 5 stars

I expected more practical approach, there's too much theory and unnececary subjects only slightly related to my course.

Not worth it
Anonymous rated 1 out of 5 stars

Low quality education, extremely heavy schedule which doesn't let you study other subjects (so if you are neurodivergent, it might become a torture for you), faculty literally wants to fail as much student as possible. They are not friendly with the students.
