To answer the both of you, I am applying to the 6 year MD program at Poznan University of Medical Sciences. I am planning on possibly getting a flat if I do go to Poznan near that school.
You'll be fine there - there's a lot of multinational students, including 200 Norwegians and an endless amount of black/Asian people there too. If you do come, there's plenty of accommodation nearby - but I'd actually recommend living in the city centre instead. For what it's worth, the worst trouble I've ever seen with medical students wasn't with Poles, but with rude and drunk medical school students.
Well, that is good to know! I won't be feeling so alone.
Heck, if you come, give me a shout and I'll introduce you to many different people :)
Your tan color could be a great help in Poland, since they will know that you are not from there, and they will all want to help you.
Please stop talking nonsense - seriously. No-one is going to care less about her colour - except perhaps Polish guys that are interested in something "exotic".
Poland is one of the most careing place I have ever been to.
Are you sure you didn't visit a different Poland?
Yes, there were racial problems in Poznań recently but they concerned gypsies.
Some might argue that this wasn't a problem.
Me, I'm sitting on the fence - although the easiest way to deal with it would be to simply ban the use of hair gel ;)
