I'm from Hong Kong and thinking to study in Poland

Hi, I'm a college student from Hong Kong, I haven't been Poland and only know a little about there. I am thinking to study in Poland. I hope that you could help me to answer some questions.

What is the living cost in Warsaw? (I mean average, someone said the living cost is similar to HK when he traveled to Warsaw)

Another question is about my study, I will complete my associate degree this June, I am not sure if I could transfer my credits to Poland and obtain a BA within one year, I am trying to contact some universities now. (because it is possible in some countries.)

Wyzsza Szkola Biznesu-National Louis University
What do you think about this university? It seems good to get an american degree but I am not sure if I could obtain a degree within one year.

Wyższa Szkoła Finansów i Zarządzania (UFM)
How about this university? The reputation? I checked the ranking seems it is out of 100 universities in Poland.

Do you have any suggestions? Any other universities will be suitable for me? Thanks a lot!

Hi. It depends, but for 500 EUR a month you shouldn't starv.

I think that It's one of the best non-public univs.

Never heard of that. There are many private univ-level schools, usually not very impressive - mostly for people, who weren't good enough to pass the exam to public ones, which are for free.

yea same here too, but the ones here have a good reputation, just REALLY expensive.

Thank you so much!
500 EUR is fine, a lot cheaper than studying in the UK or France!

Wyzsza Szkola Biznesu-National Louis University
Yes, I prefer that one too, but they may not accept me because I only want to study one more year to obtain a BA.

For this one Wyższa Szkoła Finansów i Zarządzania (UFM)
Seems they accept credits-transfer. But if the ranking is out of 100, I don't want to waste my money....

Thank you! I hope that I can go to Poland one day, no matter studying or travelling, seems it is a beautiful country.

what about the jagiellonian University in Krakow?

I've heard Krakow is nice too! Do they accept final year (BA) study?

I studied there (in Chicago location) and you won't be able to get a bachelor's degree within one year - that's for sure :). At least 3 years would be needed (depending on your English language level). I don't think you'll find a serious school that will get you a BA within a year. Unless you just care about the diploma, not your knowledge.

500 EUR is fine

But I mean without fees for the univ and If you share a flat with someone else.

And this one is not in Warsaw, I think that It is in Nowy Sącz, south of Kraków.

Where is that one located ? In Warsaw ?

Yes, I think so, but I already studied two years in the university so some overseas universities accept me to obtain a BA within one year. To be honest, diploma is so important and because of my age and financial matters... I want to obtain a BA and then go to work...

Thank you, I will do that!

Yes, in Warsaw.

I thought the living cost is a lot cheaper than the other european countries. But maybe my friend was right, the living cost might be a bit similar to Hong Kong, he spent about 200 EUR for one week in Warsaw.

Oh, really? That's pretty rush for me. Which university?
My English is pretty good and I can speak a little bit French, I don't know Polish.

Does anyone know any universities in Poland accept credits transfer/ accept my two years college study? so that I can obtain a BA within one year?

Thanks!

How good is Wyzsza Szkola Biznesu exactly? I understand that it's a leading institute for business studies, but compared to public universities, are they on par in reputation and employment oppurtunities?
