Doruk Turkish student in Wroclaw

Who are you? Briefly describe yourself (where do you come from, what do you study, etc.)

Hi! I'm Doruk Ünsal. I'm from Ankara, Turkey. I'm studying Radio TV & Cinema at Ankara University. Currently I'm an Erasmus student at Dolnośląska Szkoła Wyższa in Wroclaw. I'm really in to photography, cinema and music ...

What has surprised you in Poland?

What surprised me most is the kindness of people. I had thought that people can be more cold and distant to me but when I came here in Wroclaw I saw the opposite of this. Everyone is trying to help me and they're making me feel settled and get involved.

How did you come up with the idea of studying in Poland?

Honestly I had few options but I know lots of people that have been to Poland for Erasmus and none of them said bad things. Actually it was really easy for me to made a decision.

Do you remember the first days of studying in Poland? Describe the struggles you went through:

I can say that I had no struggles at all. Except the dorm maybe. (Now I'm staying in a flat) My Polish friends and teachers tried really hard to maintain us a great adaptation process. Our coordinator took us to a city tour ect.

Tell us about the differences between studies in Poland and studies in Turkey:

In Turkey we have lots of exams; maybe because of being an Erasmus student here instead of exams we have to do presentations, assignments and practices. This is the biggest difference that I can see.

What do you like about studying in Poland?

Wroclaw is a well ordered city. Transportation works really good. Living here is really cheap for the other European people. And there are lots of cultural and entertaining events for students. Also the night life is pretty good.

Do you know any famous people from Poland?

Of course; as a student of cinema department I know the importance of Polish directors and cinematographers for international cinematography. According to this I know Krzysztof Kieslowski, Roman Polanski, Andrzej Wajda and Janusz Kaminski. Nicolaus Copernicus and Fryderyk Chopin are other important Polish people that I know. Also as a F1 fan I know Robert Kubica.

Describe the places in Poland, that have a positive influence on you:

I love Wroclaw entirely, but if I had to be accurate I really loved the places like Rynek, Hala Stulecia, Cathedrals and of course at Wroclaw University in Wroclaw.

Tell us about the country you've always wanted to visit, but still haven't:

I can't name one country, I really want to see all of South America

Are you a member of any student's club or organization? Tell us something about it:

I'm a loyal member of every student clubs and organizations about partying:)

Would you like to come back to Poland in the future? Why?

Absolutely! Poland is a great country with a big cultural and historical background. But the most important thing is; people are so kind here. I have lots of good Polish friends that I'm going to miss.
