Why should I study here?

The Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń (NCU) was founded in 1945. It is one of the largest universities in Poland, currently comprising 17 faculties (including 3 medical faculties at Collegium Medicum UMK in Bydgoszcz). It provides graduate and postgraduate courses for almost 25 000 students, offering education in over 100 fields of study and 65 postgraduate courses. 

What are the admissions criteria?

Applicants must have all admission information translated into Polish by a sword translator (this usually means using the embassy but check the school website for a full list).  Students must submit a legalized transcript (see country page for more information on this) showing an education level that entitles them to university-level education in their home country. All applicants must also submit a copy of their passport and applicants from non-anglophone countries or high schools must show proof of English proficiency. For medical program applicants: Admissions decisions are made based on applicants' grades in two of the following subjects: chemistry, physics, and biology.  An interview is also used for the decision.

What is student life like?

University Sports Centre provides students with a wide range of sports activities such as basketball, volleyball, aerobics, yoga, steam gym, swimming, judo, aikido, and cycling. Students may also play tennis at NCU Tennis courts or attend horse riding lessons. It is important to notice that the number of students admitted to each class is limited and that priority is given to those who have PE (Physical Education) obligatory in their curriculum. The official representative of all NCU students is the SAMORZĄD STUDENCKI - the Student Self-Government (each faculty has its representative). It cooperates with the authorities of the University and the faculties in matters relating to courses, students' social and material welfare, as well as in cultural matters. Its representatives participate in meetings of the Senate and on councils of individual faculties.

The Myth of American Exceptionalism

Featuring Jennifer Viemont
We're going to be talking about the differences in the educational experience, meaning the academic side of things that students have in Europe versus in the US. So I'm always taken aback when people assume that universities in the US are the best globally.
