Reviews of University of Wroclaw, Wrocław, Poland
Courses offered in University of Wroclaw, Wrocław, Poland
“The University offered me a lot of interesting courses, such as foreign languages, culture studies and literature. Thanks to these opportunities my schedule was full, I had to work hard, and I think I was successfully pushed towards a higher level of education. And, finally, every single day I had to fight my innate shyness, open up and get to know lots of different people, which was great.”
Anastasiya Vedernikova, Russia

Both the student body and academic faculty are made up of people from all walks of life, enabling for intellectually stimulating lectures and seminars of a refreshing nature. The cosmopolitan city of Wroclaw provides a perfect backdrop for studying that would be difficult to fault; the people are warm and friendly, the nightlife is bustling and there is plenty to see and do in terms of cultural activities. My experience so far has been of deep educational emersion in a city that I plan to stay in for many years to come.”
