Greetings from Poland!
Many students think that the Erasmus + program is mainly about studying at a foreign university. Nothing could be more wrong. Thanks to the Erasmus + program, students have the opportunity to do internships at universities or other institutions. These 60 days are changing the lives of many.
For example, I will mention the university that I represent.
The College of Social and Media Culture (CSMC) is an independent HE institution. It was established on 14th August 2001. The founder of the College is Rev. Tadeusz Rydzyk, PhD, the director of „Radio Maryja” and the founder of a TV channel „TRWAM”. At present, Rev. Zdzisław Klafka, PhD, is the Rector of the College. The school has adopted the following epigraph: Fides, Ratio et Patria, i.e. Faith, Mind and Homeland.
At the moment we educate in five fields of study: Political Studies, Journalism and Social Communication, Information Technology, Media Informatics and Nursing. In recent years, our college has been repeatedly evaluated by the Polish Accreditation Committee, the only legally empowered institution in Poland dedicated to the evaluation of the quality of higher education. All faculties at our college have been positively evaluated and Journalism and Social Communication received an award of ‘ ‘outstanding’ – the highest rating awarded by the Polish Accreditation Committee.
Thanks to the excellent cooperation with institutions such as Radio Maryja, TV Trwam or the “Nasz Dziennik” newspaper, Polish and foreign students can undergo internships that directly teach real professional skills.
Besides, you can visit wonderful places in your free time. We have mountains in the south (Tatry, Karpaty, Świętokrzyskie Mountains) and the Baltic Sea in the north of the country.
My university is located in the beautiful city of Toruń. Torun is a city with a tempestuous history, which take in great traditions as well as interesting political, social, cultural and religious events.
Strolling around the Old Town of Torun you can admire a fine architectural complex which originated in the mid-13th century. Many buildings have not been altered. The examples of Gothic architecture of Torun include bourgeois tenement houses, impressive churches, sections of city walls with gates, and the ruins of the Teutonic castle. Here you can follow the footsteps of Nicolas Copernicus, the astronomer who developed the heliocentric system.
The Polish language may seem difficult for many people, but thanks to the well-known Polish hospitality, you will certainly communicate without any problems. However, it is worth knowing a few phrases.
