FAQ

Do all students get to use the students hostel? Is it mandatory?

Every international student can stay in a students dormitory – they should inform us while applying so that it can be booked in advance.

Living in a dormitory is not mandatory, a student can rent a room from a private landlord – but this they should do on their own.

How does a dormitory look? How many people stay in one room?

There are mostly double rooms in the dormitories. Bathrooms are shared by a few students. Single rooms are also available however they are in the first place for students with special needs or disabilities. There are kitchens with cookers on each floor.

Does the price for the dormitory include the cost of laundry, electricity, the Internet?

The price of the dormitory includes laundry, electricity, the Internet. There are washing machines and drying rooms. If you want to use Internet in the dormitory you should have your own PC/laptop. You can also use our computer laboratories with free Internet access in our campus open 24 hours a day 7 days a week – in this case you do not need your own computer.

There is an alternative: vegetarian bars Vega or Greenway situated within 20 minutes of walking distance from the university offering a wide choice of vegetarian dishes, including pure vegetarian ones; a lot of students (both international and Polish) cook themselves in the dormitories, all of which have kitchen facilities. Most dormitories also have cafeterias.

How do the international students spend their weekend and holidays?

We wouldn’t say that there is any difference in how Polish and international students spend their free time. Our city offers numerous sport facilities: fitness clubs, skating rings, swimming pools, golf courses, paragliding clubs, a horse-racing track and many more. Wrocław has many green areas. There are paths along the river and channels that attract cyclists and strollers. Wrocław is a little like Venice – we have over 100 bridges here. There are also plentiful cultural events: concerts, opera performances, theatre plays. A student can become a member of a student association, there are many to choose from including: sports, TV, radio, choir, photography.

When there is a holiday typical for our culture like Christmas – we organize a dinner for all the international students.

Can students work part time?

Yes, no permit is required for students of regular (daily) studies. Many employers are interested in providing job opportunities for young engineers: twice a year our university organizes job fairs where employers present their offer to students: with over 135 employers exhibiting in the last edition.

What about the scholarship program?

Foreign students just like students from Poland can get a scholarship after their first year of study for good result.
