Uniwersytet Warszawski
4.0/5
Overall
The University is known from being the best in the country that allows a wide range of courses. It has excellent professors passionate about their fields. 
Linguistics Institutes that I was attending are great for development of your linguistics skills and communication in various specialised fields as law, politics, business or economics.

4.0/5
Overall
Munich offers a lot, not only to people who want to work here but also study. Erasmus program exchange is a great way to meet new people, explore the German culture. Ludwig Maximilian Universitat is well known for the great field of research all over the world. Staff at my faculty was professional and well educated. I enjoy all the classes and professors. I would highly recommend this university.

Housing
Type of housing: On campus
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: On campus
Why?
All the Erasmus community were living at the same residence; thet was positive in the sense that all the foreigners were in close contac; but it wasn┤t so good idea if you wanted to live just with Polish people in order to learn fastly their home language.

Personal comments
When I lived in "Akademik Radomska-Ochota" in Warsaw, we enjoyed a recently re-built building, so it was in perfect conditions; we had some furniture for us as well and all the erasmus students lived almost at the same floor; that made easier the contact among us. But it take some months for the university office to translate us from Hotel Hera, our first residence, to Radomska. There wasn┤t very good organisation. I have to complaint that all the erasmus had to pay 50 zlotys more every month just because we were foreigners. I don┤t think that is quite fair.

Personal recommendation
They started to work with the Erasmus programme just the year I studied there, so they are learning to know about exchange programmes; however, It┤s a very good chance for everybody to know something more abot Poland, and warsaw specially, at one of the most importants universities at the country.

Final comments
Poles know that their future depends on the acces to the European Union, so fron the fall of the communist government they┤ve been opening their mind and culture; most of them speaks English or other language (I was surprised about the lot of poles I met who spoke Spanish). Just one thing more: if you travel to Krakow, do not sleep at the local young hostel, is terrible (I still fell pain in my back);and try to visit Aushwitz, the concentration camp; you shouldn┤t miss it.

Personal comments
It was an authentic adventure: after studying all the advertisements abount banks accounts, I decided to open an account at Bank Pekao S.A.; It was O. K., but I had some language problems at the begginning; later on, my bank at Spain had a problem and I only could get my money throutgh a transfer two weeks after I ordered it (I had to be two weeks eating just spaghetti and bread...nive thing).

Course recommendations
The University of Warsaw has plenty of courses relating to very different aspects, specially relating to Law, Social Sciences and International Relations. I had the chance to attend a course on English and European Law, imparted in English by British professors coming from University of Cambridge. That can give you an idea about the courses thet you can follow at the university or one of their associated centres.

A closer relation in respect to foreign students, if they feel more involved, they can really provide a higer profit making it more famous abroad
