A short guide to studying in Poland: cultural background

share article

Diversity is the spice of life. Different cultures around the globe cultivate different customs, different social norms, and different ways of life. Moving to a foreign country to study may present some challenges arising from cultural differences between your home country and the country where you will go to a university. It is not possible to predict every single situation that you may encounter while living abroad, but being aware that people might do things differently in another country helps to avoid awkward situations or misunderstandings. During our webinar, we will talk about cultural differnces and how they can enrich your study experince.

Watch the whole video or find an answer to a specific question. By clicking the question of your choice, you will be taken to the moment in the video when the question is answered.

“Working with candidates and students from around the world gives me a lot of satisfaction. I graduated from a secondary school in Dublin, Ireland, so as someone who has experienced the process of moving to a foreign country as well as learning in a foreign school, in a foreign language, I know how important the support of the institution and its employees is for the newcomers.”
