Hi,

I am going to University of Information Technology & Management for Bachelor degree. So, I just want to ask that is there any halal food restaurant in Rzeszow? Plus, what do international students do to earn during a part time job?

Thank you!

Anybody here to help me, please?

I would be very very surprised if there was one.

what do international students do to earn during a part time job?

They generally don't: nobody will go to the effort of getting you the work permit that you need.

I think it would be possible to work illegally on a farm during summer. For example gathering strawberries.

As they write here: They pay is 2zł (0.5eur) for gathering 1 box like on this picture:

But for that somebody who knows polish should help you and I don't know if they would like to employ illegally somebody from middle east (guess), as the person would stand out of the crowd, contrary to Ukrainian.

And Ukrainians can easily get work permits to pick strawberries etc.

You will not be able to work (legally): you would need a work permit in order to work, nobody is going to get a work permit for you.

Minimum salary is around 1000pln net, so 250eur net for 160h per month of work. If you're ready to work for fraction of it, by doing some construction work or farming, then maybe somebody would consider. But realistically no chance, because you would have no permit, no language and no time (studies)

For you it is going to be virtually impossible to get a work permit.

Why would an employer want to go to the time, trouble and expense of hiring you when they can just hire a Pole (or other EU citizen) who speaks Polish (i.e. the language of the work place) and doesn't require him to spend the time and money on a work permit? Especially as you'll only be a part-time employee!

I suspect it's the same old story - someone's been told stories by an "agent" about how Poland is cheap to enter/get a visa, stories about how he can get a part time job and stories about how it's a gateway to the EU.

I really am strongly in favour of introducing a minimum income requirement for non-EU students studying in the EU, as well as preventing them from working during their studies unless it's in a directly related field to the course. 6000 euro/year should be the bare income required.

No, work permit is only given if the company applies for it and proves that they cannot find local worker for the position.

Thank you fellow beings I got a lot much from you people. But still one thing is remained. Do you people think I could survive over there. I mean by making food for myself as there there would gas connection in the university hostel. Is the food cheap over there?

And how much does it approximately cost a one time meal for one person?

Food isn't expensive in PL. Supermarket prices are similar to KSA or the Gulf. Meat is a bit dearer though.

Ok, I have never been to KSA or gulf but thanx anyways. Hope the prices are not too high.

Where is Kashmir ? In India or Pakistan?

If you know prices in Islamabad, then take a look at this comparison:

Indices Difference Info
Consumer Prices in Rzeszow are 33.47% higher than in Islamabad
Consumer Prices Including Rent in Rzeszow are 37.10% higher than in Islamabad
Rent Prices in Rzeszow are 51.71% higher than in Islamabad
Restaurant Prices in Rzeszow are 7.04% higher than in Islamabad
Groceries Prices in Rzeszow are 32.15% higher than in Islamabad
Local Purchasing Power in Rzeszow is 47.57% higher than in Islamabad

+ you have to pay usually around 2000 eur per year Tuition and min. 70eur per month for place in dormitory. If you don't get place in dormitory then room in student's flat would cost min100 eur per month.

But be so kind and tell us your story (you are anonymous anyway). How come that you've heard about Poland ans studies in Rzeszów. It's not the most popular city in Poland, so how come that somebody so far away could hear about it? What do you know about Poland there. And from what sources?

Thanx fellow being. I belong to Rawlakot, Kashmir and living in Karachi, Pakistan because of my education. I got that university via some university search engine. I know the population is quite low there. But I could afford that university so that's why I am thinking to move there.

Thank you!

P.S. Kashmir is still a disputed territory between India & Pakistan, having a line of control and not a solid border means that could be changed at anytime either to Pakistan or India or to fully independent. As, 65% of population is in favor of separate independent state.

Interesting. Now I recall something about disputed territories between India and Pakistan. So it's there. Anyway here you have prices comparison between Kashmir and Rzeszów:

Consumer Prices in Rzeszow are 46.49% higher than in Karachi
Consumer Prices Including Rent in Rzeszow are 63.52% higher than in Karachi
Rent Prices in Rzeszow are 178.18% higher than in Karachi
Restaurant Prices in Rzeszow are 28.24% higher than in Karachi
Groceries Prices in Rzeszow are 34.04% higher than in Karachi
Local Purchasing Power in Rzeszow is 68.72% higher than in Karachi

So if you can afford 50% more for grocery shopping and 3 times more for accommodation and to pay tuition fee and plane ticket to come here, then come here studying.

Thanx fellow. I really got a lot from you. Thank you so much.

But the prices for karachi are mentioned too high like Coke/Pepsi (0.33 liter bottle) is of 0.15€ and not of 0.27 €.

It's restaurant price in the 1st section.

Maybe you will find this article interesting. It's about foreign students in Lublin - next to Rzeszów.

How they are studying in Poland? "More than once I have heard the insults". "It's hard to communicate in English. Apartment? For us there are higher prices"

- My girlfriend was walking the dog. Suddenly came up to her an older man. He began to insult her, threatened, kicked the dog - says Andre from the US. - The only thing that annoys me: I can not communicate with the locals. Police officers, officials or post office workers do not speak English. But the homeless, who talked to her at the station, already so - adds Connor from the UK. We asked the foreign students, how they feel in Lublin

- Lublin how nicely defined my friend, love at second sight. I arrived at the bus station, got out, and saw shack and bazaars everywhere. Such images also I have seen in Kyrgyzstan. And then I found the charming Old Town.

At first I felt a stranger here, although even now - after a four-month stay - I still do not consider the city for my own. I do not have good contact with the Polish students. I do not really want to make friends, and even talk during the breaks between classes. Maybe it is the language barrier - says Bektur Elebesov from Kyrgyzstan (international relations, the second year of undergraduate studies).
