Why did you choose to go to Poznan, Poland?

Poznan is the 5th largest city in Poland with a great location. There are Warsaw from 4 hours, Berlin from 3 hours and Prague from 8 hours by bus.

In Poznan there are so many cozy cafes and restaurants which are not expensive. The architecture is great as well. You can get to every part of Poznan just in 10-30 minutes.


How long is the scholarship? How much money do you receive to help you with living costs?

I had 450 euro per month. That's enough for food and accommodation.

What is the student lifestyle like in Poznan?

Since I went there as an intern, to work in a company, I cannot tell you anything about student lifestyle.

Would you recommend the city and the University of Poznan to other students?

Of course! Poznan is a great city, I wish I could stay there longer.


What is the food like?

Almost in every cafe/restaurant, they have their own great menu. As I mentioned before, they are not expensive. I've been in so many places and I really enjoyed the food in each of them.

Did it cost you to find your accommodation in Poznan?

Yes, I spent 270 euro per month for a room in a shared flat. The accommodation was in the city center, but you can find something even cheaper in the center.

How much does it cost to live in Poznan?

I guess in general 400-600 euro could be enough.

Is the language easy to get to grips with? Are there language courses available at the University?

I have no idea about the language courses in the universities. The language is not hard to get if you know for example russian, belarusian, ukrainian, etc.

What's the easiest or most economical way to travel to Poznan from your city?

By buses (LuxExpress and FlixBus).

And for eating? Can you recommend some good restaurants in Poznan?

Weranda Caffe, CocoNat - Cafe & Breakfast, Lavenda Cafe & Lunch, Pierozek i kompocik, Zindo, Un Pot...

Is there any other advice that you could give to students going to Poznan in the future?

Learn at least basic polish phrases or words... Not everyone speaks english there.
