Good morning! I am an international student who got accepted in both universities however I soooo confused which one should I choose to start my undergraduate program in. I understand that Warsaw is much bigger than Wroclaw but I've also heard that Wroclaw has a better students life. I need opinions about the 2 universities and the 2 cities asap plz.

Both are great towns but for foreign students I recommend Warsaw over Wrocław due to having a larger expat population.

A very hard call. Wroclaw is a bit cheaper, Warsaw has more people and a degree from their is more prestigious. Both have good student life. Warsaw does have more people from different countries...

In my opinion yes, however Wroclaw is great too. It depends what sort of things you like really.

Is the residence permit process also the same in each city ?

Identical.

Thanks Jon! Could you also please state some advantages and disadvantages of living in both cities or studying in their universities ? so I can just take the final decision.

Thanks again in advance

Life in Warsaw is more expensive, pace of life is faster, and it's a little more competitive. If it's your first time in Poland and you prefer to take your time to get familiar with Poland / Polish people / life in Poland, I'd suggest Wroclaw. Otherwise, if you feel strong about your abilities, are into quick professional life, need a lot of diversity then Warsaw might suit you better. Regarding the weather, overall Wroclaw has more warm days and less snow than Warsaw.

@Nathans,
Thank you soooo much :) that really helped ! I hope it's easy to communicate in English in both cities as I don't speak polish at all but willing to learn it as soon as I get there.

@Wulkan
I speak English, Arabic, a little German. Will I find troubles with communicating with English mostly?

Warsaw will probably pay better.
