A Portuguese student wants to study in Poland

I am a Portuguese student who will graduate within 1 semester.
I was thinking of doing masters degree abroad especially in Poland (a friend of mine who was in erasmus convinced me). I researched about Wroclaw and I was very interested.

I have been a few days researching the cost of living, but nothing like talking to Polish guys. In recent years the cost of living has gone up? In research I saw that I can rent a room to pay 250pln. Is it realistic? and food? Roughly, how much spend on average a student in Wroclaw?

I have many questions, because I intend to live in Wroclaw in the next two years. and basically I'm not rich, so I have to search very well.

Since I am still doing research, anyone has advice or suggestions? would be a great help!

Thank you very much!

Sorry my english (one of the reasons for wanting to study abroad)

Olsztyn is several times smaller than Wrocław and 250pln sounds unrealistic here. Rather 350zł and 4 people in the flat ~ 1200zł - 1400zł pcm

and food?

minimum 20zł per day

try here perhaps. There are some useful numbers given as well, so you can simply call them and inquire.
It's much cheaper if you live in a campus than if you are to rent a flat.
Also, if you are to dine at a student's canteen, prices over there are usually reasonable, compared to those in restaurants and bars.

250 PLN for a room is rather impossible. I think that current medium prices are around 400-600 PLN. It is cheaper in dorms, but usually you have to live with someone there and dorms aren't/(weren't in my student period) easily obtainable. But sharing room with some cool company during studies is rather advantage in my opinion. In late 90' it was possible to live as a student on about 700 PLN in Wroclaw. Now, I would say it has to be at least 1000 PLN, and considering you are a foreigner (so your supporting family net will be far far away, you know, you wan't get 2 kilos of cakes after some family event and bring it to Wroclaw..) you need something around 1200-1500 PLN per month.

Actually I considering this in the begining of May :-) but it is unconfirmed yet :-(.
So, I will not bother you now

In a Dormitory you can usually get a room for 300-400 zl per month. But you have to share the room with 1 student.

18 Feb 2010 #9 - There are two dormitories located in the centre of the city

Both of those are central, within stumbling distance of rynek. There are also quite a few dorms in biskupin, but i'm not sure how much they are. I would guess they're cheaper as they are a bit further out, and older. And a bunch of private rooms in Poland.,242.dhtml - and here are some more from the university of technology
