Are you coming to Warsaw for Erasmus Student Exchange at Kozminski University?
Great! This post is dedicated to you! Below you will find all the information you need to know about Kozminski University.
Kozminski University is a private business school in Warsaw. The university is considered to be one of Poland’s highest rated private universities. It was established, not long ago, in 1993 and named after a Polish professor of economics and entrepreneurship. Kozminski University holds the triple crown accreditation (EQUIS, AMBA, AACSB), which less than 1% of school business worldwide hold. The university runs programs in Polish and in English at bachelor, master, postgraduate, MBA and doctorate levels.
The campus area is about 3,4 hectare and consists of four buildings. 3 cafeterias, a bookstore, 2 photocopying offices, 5 coffee machines, a cash machine, a post office are available for university students. Kozminski has 5 student organization offices where students might socialize and gain some professional experience. Also, there is a video of Kozminski Campus. Enjoy!
As any other University, which offers Erasmus exchange program, Kozminski University also has ESN (Erasmus Student Network). They define themselves as “an European student organization whose purpose is to promote and develop international student exchange programs, especially Erasmus”, ESN of Kozminski University on Facebook. People in this students organization are great individuals who make Erasmus experience for other students unforgettable. If you follow their Facebook page, you will be able to know about many parties, events, trips, and meetings organized in your Erasmus University.
The campus is located in Praga Północ (Praga North), which is very well connected with the city center and other living districts like Wola, for example. Nearby metro station and multiple bus and tram connections make the area easily accessible.
Praga is a district situated on the east side of the Vistula river bank. The district has undeniable charm. Many pre-war houses and countless shrines are attracting both Warsaw residents and tourists. Praga, often considered as neglected and dangerous district might surprise with numerous hyped bars, clubs, and restaurants. Considerable lower rental prices are attracting young artists and creative Warsawians to live and work in historic buildings of Praga. That might be one of the reasons why plenty murals and art installations can be found in this neighborhood. Football fans and mass event lovers will find the National Stadium hosting the biggest sport and music events in Poland.
Commuting to Kozminski University might be a headache for the ones living in distant neighborhoods. Unfortunately, the University campus is not located close to metro station. The closest station is Dworzec Wileński from, which you can catch a direct tram (5 tram stops) to the University. We highly recommend checking public transport connections to avoid spending 40 or 50 minutes on buses and trams. On this website you can check the most convenient connections.
The best option, of course, would be finding a flat near the university. You can check Pepe Housing website for finding your perfect place for Erasmus Semester.
