Firstly, I want to say hi and thanks for reading this. I am from turkey and I am aiming to study the bachelor’s degree in Poland. I read some good stuff and some bad stuff about general life like anywhere in this world. But as you can understand, it is a really hard decision. I want to study engineering (Not fully decided which one it is going to be yet.). My first question is about the education quality. I want to come there because I want to take higher quality education and be able to live on my own. There are articles that say there are great universities with european education but I contacted some Turkish who studied or still study in Poland. And they are pretty divided about whether its good or bad. There is not a common thought. That is one of the reasons that I am here writing this and hoping that you will help me. Besides education, I want to ask about general life and the obstacles that I will or might face. As a non-Muslim Turkish boy, what should I expect? I am raised by a modern family in a modern western city. I lived in UK and Italy for a while. But I have no idea if it will be the same like those two. I am not that socialised anyways. My last question for now is about Polish. I will study in English but I know that I MUST learn Polish. It is not because I want it, It is because I feel like I am obligated to learn it to show respect to people and country. But when I am in the learning process, Would it be so hard to live my general life? I am again so grateful that you read this long series of questions and I am hoping that you will help me with this tough situation. With great love and respect from Turkey.
Take acting and public speaking. Vocal skill will affect your earning power more than any other detail, and acting skill will get you a job offer even when you are not qualified for the job. Get "Dress For Success" by John Molloy and consider all the advice for students. (The book is about appropriate clothes, not expensive clothes.)
- The most important benefit you get from school is your address book: professional contacts in your field.
- The difference between a successful person and a very successful person is that the latter knows hundreds more people, and knows them quite well.
- No school will teach you any of the above. They don't even teach how to do well in their school.
I have no information about Polish schools. I have the impression that schools everywhere do not actually teach much. They expect the student to know what to study and how to find it.
