as you already know these are three different schools... if you want to study computer science you should consider going to Warsaw university of Technology or The university of Warsaw.

there is also quite good private school:

Nieither of them.

Warsaw University of Life Science is about 10 km south from city center in Ursynów, and those two are more or less in the middle of the city (exept from science faculties of University of Warsaw which are in Ochota).

Frankly speaking Warsaw University of Life Science is the richest of them, so has the best equipment. (It was fomerly agricultural school surrounded by fields, which they sold few years ago for real estate and gathered hudge amount of money for modernisation)

But in terms of prestige the best computer science studies are in the University of Warsaw (students from this university every year are in finlals of world championship of programists, and as I remembered they won twice).

There is fourth public university in Warsaw - Warsaw School of Economics but as you see from the name it taches somethnig different)

its very hard to get into a polish university. Unless you write some ******** letter and give it straight to the dean, but you must lie in the letter how you wish to reloceate to poland permanently because of your roots and so on and that you can not do the entry exam.,

Otherwise I think maybe enrolling as an International Student will help ?
