I don't work there, but you might find a job in ''Easyjet call center'' or try ''Sheraton Poznań'' 5 mins from university of Poznan.
Also try to get involve in ''Language Exchange Club Poznan'', there are a lot of foreigners, and students that work in Poznan, you might find a job with connection who know!!.. they have multicultural meetings every Thursday at 19:00 - at Bunuba Cafe, ul. Szewska 20a Poznań..

part time job availible in any kind of job ?

Basically, no. There is little or no chance that any employer will go through the trouble of getting a work permit to hire you. If you need a job to fund your studies, don't come to Poland. You can make your plans on the very safe assumption that you will never be able to earn a penny in Poland during your studies.

How can you be a waiter without speaking local language? As to office work, forget it, they'll require Polish and thousands of Poles are after such positions. In order to be a teacher, you need to be qualified and when natives requested, Poles strictly limit hiring to Britons and to some extent North Americans and Autralians (but Americans and Australians need work permit).

So best bet is to expect not to find any work. Polish students need jobs and contrary to you, they speak Polish.

Sorry, life is not as in your dream!

It's practically impossible unless you speak Polish very well, and Polish is a very difficult language that will take you many years to learn. Make your plans on the very safe assumption that you will never be able to earn a single penny during your stay in Poland. If you cannot afford to pay 100% for your stay and studies, then Poland is not a realistic place for you to study. Even Polish students have great difficulty finding work, and foreign students practically never do.

Hi guy
I am a Sudanese citizen and thinking to joining at Poznan University of technology for an one year MSc program, and I am about gathering some information so I found some useful answers here. Mainly I ask for racism cases and anti-equality toward foreigners Students and like me as a Sudanese native mixed Afro-Arab cultured and totally eastern. Even I heard good news about Polish People are likely very friendly and most popular and highly welcoming some others. As I said my main reason for thinking staying there is Study a MSc Mechatronic constructions engineering as well as knowing people form wide different culture. Moreover

@Boom Boom

He is bitter because his visa was rejected and I told him there was no point in wasting money reapplying because he was obviously not really interested in studying as much as gaining entry to the EU. Oddly, he thanked me for the advice at the time.

People have a free will and if they wish to study in Poland (assuming that a Polish Uni accepts them for study), they are entirely free to do so.

However, if you do not speak the language and do not possess any skills which are so fantastic and so unusual that any prospective employer will want to employ you - you will not get any part time work. If you are from outside the EU the employer has to jump through hoops to employ you. They are not willing to do that when they have other candidates for the jobs.

You may get part time work washing dishes, serving, cooking in a restaurant/fast food place - but the amount of money you receive will not go ANY way towards keeping you, your flat, paying all the bills, getting to and from Uni, buying books, paying for incidentals.

If you think that people do not want you to come to Poland - you are wrong. We are trying to SAVE you from living on the streets as you will not have enough money to live anywhere.

The degree you get after studying will not be worth the paper it is written on and you will not be able to stay afterwards in Poland, get a good job, bring your family over and live like you expect to.

Of course, you can prove us all wrong - so come back in 3 or 4 years to this forum and let us know how you got on.

We all wish you well.

If you want to flush your parents hard-earned savings down the toilet and waste the best years of your life for nothing useful, be my guest. If you want to be the victim of unscrupulous scam artists, making them rich and you and your family poor, go right ahead. If you want to end up in the EU database as a persona non grata and never be able to set foot in the EU for the rest of your life, I'm not going to stand in your way.

It's your life, and your (or your parents) money, so it's no skin off my back if you throw it all away by acting stupidly. Knock yourself out! Like Terri say, you are entirely free to do so.

I don't agree with Dominic on everything (particularly about STEM being the only thing worth doing) - but he is absolutely right when he points out that most English language degrees in PL are a complete joke with very limited prospects for non-EU citizens.

(particularly about STEM being the only thing worth doing)

That's not exactly what I say. I say that non-STEM majors are worth pursuing only for top students at top universities. But for the rest, studying at mediocre universities, they are a poor investment, and a complete waste of time and money for any foreigner studying in English in Poland.

Hi! I would like to suggest an interesting part time job. The work is to visit a sport event (football, hockey, etc.) and to cover it online via a mobile app. It does not take too much time. The payment depends on a number of covered matches.

Your chances are astronomically small that you will find a job either during your studies in Poland, If you do not have enough money to pay 100% for your studies and stay, then Poland is not the country for you. Nor are any of the other countries in the poorer parts of the EU where youth unemployment is high: Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Albania, the countries of the former Yugoslavia, Greece, Italy, Spain and Portugal. Male your plans on the very safe assumption that you will never be able to earn even a single penny in any of these countries.

Also, degrees from English-language courses at Polish universities are generally of very low quality and are not helpful for finding work anywhere in the EU. Especially degrees in economics or business related fields. If you want a degree that can help you find a job, then study a field that requires lots of advanced applied mathematics, like econometrics, financial mathematics, financial engineering or actuary sciences. Or study a highly paid field of engineering, like petroleum, geological or biomedical engineering.

The best place to study that is either in your own country, or, if you can afford it, one of the richer countries like the UK, Germany, Switzerland, and especially the US.

Learning Polish will take you many long, hard years. It's not worth the investment unless you have concrete and definite plans for a long future in the country, which you don't have.

My advice is to focus on getting the best education you can in your home country or other Arabic speaking country, in a field that can realistically help you find a job (with lots of advanced applied mathematics).

Sorry but it has to be said, how many threads and times are we going to get the same dumb questions about the same dumb subjects from the same dumb people, please johnnie foreigner listen to what people are telling you, don't come to Poland to ''study'' I'm guessing that your Polish language skills are zero, at best you all have abysmal English and if the ''students'' of the future have to ask such dumb questions like, can I get a job, how much can I earn etc........what hope is there.

Please listen to what Dom, NTF and others are telling you, don't waste your time, effort and money

P.S. message to most non Polish ''students'' we know it's a scam and we're watching you.

Highly unlikely since you don't speak the native language of Poland.

You are not supposed to, but you could tutor / teach English, if you charge around 40zl an hour you should beat any competition.

Just place some ads when you get there see how it goes.

Yes, check this site or many other which talk about it

International students have the right to work while studying in Poland as long as they are enrolled in an Institution. Students who are not nationals of EU member countries must also hold a valid residency permit.

Please i need sincere answers,

I never offer other answers. Always sincere. Sincerity is my middle name.
