"In the time from February 2010 till February 2011 I spent two very interesting semesters as an exchange student at the Poznan University of Economics. Poznan is a great place worth seeing. […] Next to a number of modern shopping centers and a colorful nightlife you will see plenty of old monuments. Poznan “never sleeps” because throughout the whole year there is a huge amount of events including concerts, galleries, markets, sport events and much more. In addition, the local ESN (Erasmus Student Network) group offered countless activities, trips, workshops and parties. The advantageous location of the city makes it easy to reach and also allows a number of travels through Poland by car, train or airplane.
The Poznan University of Economics provides a proper learning environment and offers an amount of interesting courses for Exchange Students. In these courses I successfully worked together with Polish and other international students. A small number of course participants plus a good support of the professors provided ideal conditions to complete all courses successfully. The time in Poznan was great! […] During my exchange in Poznan I gained invaluable experiences and discovered the great Polish hospitality. For this reason I can only recommend taking this great opportunity that IS:Link provides. I am looking forward for my next visit in Poznan and Poland.“

“I spent the summer semester of 2010 at the Poznań University of Economics, taking part in the local Erasmus programme to which I was enrolled by IS:link. There were several convincing reasons that induced me to study abroad for one semester in Poland. First of all, I wanted to improve my English language skills and conveniently the Poznan University offers courses in English. Then, I always loved to see distant places and I wanted to try getting along on my own in a novel environment and make new friendships. Luckily, all of these wishes very completely fulfilled during my semester in Poznan. I met many great people, broadened my horizon, made many unique experiences, and last but not least had a lot of fun!
[…] Furthermore, we played paint ball, went canoeing, took part in a parade and partied on the tramway, which crossed the city for several hours while playing loud music.
The university is located in the centre of the city, next to two beautiful parks, a castle and several other universities. Public transportation s(tram and bus) usually enables you to arrive at the specific building in a few minutes. The student’s halls of residence are about 3 km far from the university and can be reached quickly by tram as well. Getting around the university campus only takes little time. […]
The Poznań University of Economics, in my opinion, is just amazing. Studying there is very different from studying at the in Germany at the University of Duisburg-Essen. You study in classes of only 30 people and receive a fixed class schedule at the beginning of the semester. Moreover, you usually do not write just one exam at the end of a course. Instead, you have to hold presentations, solve home assignment and work together in project groups during the courses and lectures.
In retrospective, I am very happy that I chose Poland for my study abroad semester, especially as I was in my favourite city, Poznań. Although the many insights I have gained were not exclusively positive ones, I surely have made a unique experience that has advanced me in my personal and academic life and that I would repeat in any case.
