Eren Turkish student in Bydgoszcz
Who are you? Briefly describe yourself (where do you come from, what do you study, etc.)
I am Eren. I am from Turkey. Also, I am studying civil engineering. It's the fourth semester at UTP in Bygoszcz.
What has surprised you in Poland?
It was so good to see someone can speak English very well. Also, the most surprising thing is transportation for me. Because the trams and buses arrive at the time is written on a table every time. (It's not like this in my country.) I love this!
How did you come up with the idea of studying in Poland?
I have some options to go for Erasmus. But here is little cheaper than the other countries and the classes are in English. Also, Poland has a different architecture at their buildings. I thought that I could see this with Poland's culture.
Do you remember the first days of studying in Poland? Describe the struggles you went through:
I was taken by my friend who is studying here. It was at night. The other day, I met with someone and went shopping. We went outside at night with my friends. We were stopped by the police because crossing the road.
Tell us about the differences between studies in Poland and studies in Turkey:
I think if I wasn't an Erasmus student, everything would be similar with Turkey. But I am sure that this similarity is about student life, not about the procedure of studying. I think it's different here.
What do you like about studying in Poland?
The lecturers are so helpful. You can ask them something except the time of lessons. Also, there is good nightlife here except studying. :)
Do you know any famous people from Poland?
I haven't learnt someone yet.
Describe the places in Poland, that have a positive influence on you:
It's Torun. It's a small city. But I liked there. Also, I will go to Krakow, Gdansk.
Tell us about the country you've always wanted to visit, but still haven't:
It's Spain. I want to go to Barcelona. Also, I have a friend there. He is an Erasmus student like me.
Are you a member of any student's club or organization? Tell us something about it:
Yes, member of ESN in Poland. Because I am an Erasmus student here.:)
Would you like to come back to Poland in the future? Why?
Why not? But I should see somewhere more. Because I am nearly new here. I think there are a lot of places that I can't go. Maybe I can come again and go :)
