Which Polish Universities are multilingual, and teach Psychology? If so, do any of these Universities have a Campus?

:)

Dziękuję z gory.

You can study Medicine (6 year program) in English in several Polish cities, but you have to pay for your study (even if you are an EU-citizen).

However, I don't know any university where you can study Psychology in English.

It will be difficult to find, if you want to study at a "real" university. There are probably some private "institutions" trying to make money.

Actually, this thread is serious. You know why? I can get a study loan in Holland, and that's in Euros. I don't have to tell you that the Zloty is about four times weaker, so studying in Poland might save me a lot of money.

;)

Me neither, so that's why I was asking. (Studying all of that in Polish might prove too difficult for me.)

I don't want to study Medicine, but thanks for your reply.

fair enough, but getting a degree at home is probably worth the trouble because of the university rankings.

A way to find out is to write to every university in Poland with the psychology dep and ask them.

You have a point. (I'm just exploring my options!)

Well, maybe someone who's reading PF studies Psychology somewhere in Poland. You never know. (Can't you simply e-mail them?)

Well, there's one catch though (and I don't know if that is still the rule nowadays), and that is that you have to be registered at a Dutch University and pay college fee in order to get a college loan from the Dutch govt. In my time, the Uni had to fill in certain forms to prove that you're actually studying there. So if you want to go live on a college loan from NL, be registered at a Dutch Uni and actually study at a Polish Uni, I don't know first of all if this is pssbl and secondly, I'm not sure if you're saving so much money in that case...

You probably have already, but I would check with the Ministerie van Onderwijs en Wetenschappen what the pssbilities are for your plan. Good luck!

I don't know, I've looked at quite a few pages, but I can't seem to find much info about studying abroad, and it looks like a lot of rules have changed since we have the open boarders and all. I'm still busy acquiring my VWO though, but I thought asking a few questions in advance could prove useful.

In my time, the Uni had to fill in certain forms to prove that you're actually studying there.

I guess that's still the same.

So if you want to go live on a college loan from NL, be registered at a Dutch Uni and actually study at a Polish Uni, I don't know first of all if this is pssbl and secondly, I'm not sure if you're saving so much money in that case...

There are different types of loans these days, and I might be able to finance a study abroad with a Dutch bank. I don't think you necessarily have to be registered at a Dutch University anymore, since we're melting into one big, happy Europe.

You probably have already, but I would check with the Ministerie van Onderwijs en Wetenschappen what the pssbilities are for your plan. Good luck!

I know my options in Holland, which look doable, but I was curious about studying abroad, preferably in a cheaper country. (Just asking around.)

Well you could try the Erasmus program, but in order to do that, you will have to be in your second year at a Dutch Uni. This gives you an extra scholarship on top of your college loan and the opportunity to study at a certain number of selected Unis abroad for a certain amount of time.

I have done that 3 times actually, once for 3 months, 9 weeks and 6 weeks.

Just check that out; I think this comes closest to what you want. Don't know if it's still around, but it's a EU program, so it should be.

Here's a couple of links with regards to the Erasmus scholarship program. They might be of interest to you. They are in Dutch though, as they are especially for AJ. Maybe they're in English too, didn't check that.

nuffic.nl/nederlandse-studenten/financiering/beurzen/erasmus-voor-studie

erasmusbeurs.nl

These are just the result of a quick Google for Erasmus beurs. I am sure there is much more info on it. Just have a look.

I know, just wondering if there were other options.

I bet you've had a blast! (Not that it's easy.)

Don't know if it's still around, but it's a EU program, so it should be.

It's still around, and yes, it's a very good alternative. (But I still need to find out if Poland has multilingual Universities.)

:)

yes, you can, that is what I said.

Sorry, but when I hear writing I automatically assume writing letters. (I grew up in the eighties, my bad!) Alright! I guess I'll be sending mails this week then. Thanks.

Yes I did :) Especially the 3 months in London were great :) However, you are expected to produce some results, at least in my time you had to. Else you would have to pay back part of the scholarship, at least that was what I was told before embarking upon it. But Film and the First World War was easy peasy, great and interesting stuff and didn't need too much attention, plus you got to see loads of films as well :) So I had plenty of time performing one of my favourite pastimes: visiting the British- and the Imperial War Museum. Plus the pubs of course ;) I had a small room near Regent's Park on the Crescent in a building especially meant for Erasmus students. It was screamingly expensive, compared to the Dutch standards, but hey, it was London :)

I heard that psychology is a bit more demanding of the student, not that I am attempting to discredit what you have studied. You are obviously well educated.

Hey, don't worry, nothing has changed!

But Film and the First World War was easy peasy, great and interesting stuff and didn't need too much attention, plus you got to see loads of films as well :)

I will have three subjects in University. Psychology, Philosophy and Statistics. I've heard Statistics is a pain in the butt for most people, but I don't expect too much trouble with the first two subjects, because it interests me.

So I had plenty of time performing one of my favourite pastimes: visiting the British- and the Imperial War Museum. Plus the pubs of course ;)

I'm not sure how many time I will have for that sort of thing, but I suspect there will be some time for all of that.

So they pretty much arrange your stay, and accommodate you as a student? Or do you have to arrange everything yourself?

It was screamingly expensive, compared to the Dutch standards, but hey, it was London :)

Oh, I hear you, Amsterdam isn't too cheap either!

:)

I heard that psychology is a bit more demanding of the student, not that I am attempting to discredit what you have studied.

Yeah, I've heard you will have to do a lot of research and examinations for yourself, and conduct surveys with fellow students. (But I think I'm more than curious enough!)

Well, they gave me a brochure with available accomodation and I had to go check it out myself and seal the deal. Pay a (small) deposit and the room was mine. So I guess it was a bit pre-arranged and a bit of my own effort.

*een btje van jezelf en een btje van Honig* :))

I thought it was good that way, at least it was better than to go hunting for a place to live in a city you don't know, which is huge and you don't know the policies and all.

Oh, I hear you, Amsterdam isn't too cheap either!

I was studying at the UvA in Amsterdam, so I was pretty much used to high prices. It's true, Amsterdam isn't cheap, but London takes the biscuit! It's much and much more expensive. Don't know about the situation currently, but back then it for certainly was.

I will have three subjects in University. Psychology, Philosophy and Statistics.

Gee, things have changed. Or I just haven't keeping up to par with developments at Dutch Universities anymore.

*Maar eerst ff je VWO halen* :)

Of had je dat al?

Edit: I once tried to do a course Psychology in a trimester. Got bored a bit - it's not my thing, learning about *Gestalt-theory* by, who was it again, Robert Pearl?

I think it's extremely interesting. I never knew what I wanted to be when I was younger, but I'm 100% positive that this is what I want.

Well, it seems real enough for me! I've looked up psychology.pl and the tuition fee turns out to be 3000 € a year for students from within the European Union, so that's going to be 15.000 € for the whole program.

:)

Dziękuję bardzo Paulina!

If that's true, then why doesn't the whole world study in those places already?

Education in Germany is pretty much completely funded by the tax payer. Sweden and Denmark are also tax payer funded.

All EU citizens must be charged the same tuition fees by law - in the case of Scotland, it's free. Finland also is free, I believe.

Curiously, English students are charged, but that was to avoid Scottish universities being swamped with English students.

I dont think there was any fear of that ;0) Scotland only has three in the top 30 in Britain :D We have the quality and the quanity in England...

And you think it will be different for Dutch students?

Why would it be? You're in the EU, its free! What do you hope to do after you psychology degree?

I think the fear was that English students would especially take advantage in courses like medicine - Scotland is a cheaper place to live in general and a medicine degree is a medicine degree, really.

I wonder what's going to happen if tuition fees go up further for English universities??

And you think it will be different for Dutch students?

Yes, it is. It wouldn't be legal to have free education for only Scottish residents - the fee charged has to be the same for all EU citizens.

Well, if that's true, then they could've told me ages ago!

I want to specialize in Occupational Psychology - also called Industrial or Labour Psychology - and work at a multi-national.

:)

Yes, it is. It wouldn't be legal to have free education for only Scottish residents - the fee charged has to be the same for all EU citizens.

I guess I'll keep an eye on Scotland aswell then. Thank you very much for the tip. I will still need a job and a place to stay though! But maybe there are Scottish housewives who wouldn't mind a Dutch toyboy? I'm not a free-loader, I swear, I will work very hard!

xD

Okay, serious now.

How about something like London University distance courses? Pretty cheap and it looks like a decent program. There are a couple of others as well. Umea University in Sweden for instance..
