Erasmus Student Network

The Erasmus Student Network (ESN) is one of the biggest interdisciplinary student associations in Europe, established in 1990, for the purpose of supporting and developing student exchange between universitites. It is present in 282 higher education institutions, in 34 countries. The network is constantly expanding. SWPS University officially joined the ESN in December 2007. The main goal of the organization is to foster cross-cultural integration among students and educational institutions.

At the beginning of each semeter, SWPS University organizes an Orientation Week, when all Erasmus students, mentors and members of the ESN Team get to know each other. Additionally, there are numerous opportunities to make new friends and spend time together throughout the academic year. During the Erasmus porgram, we also introduce foreign students to Polish culture and history by celebrating the main Polish holidays, explaining Polish customs and inviting students to sample Polish cuisine. Our experience of the past few years shows that incoming Erasumus students find their stay in Poland very enriching and enjoyable.

Study in Capitol of Poland

Warsaw is the capital of Poland. It is a city steeped in history, yet it is focused on the present and looking forward to the future. Within one day, you can travel back in time by taking a stroll around the Old Town, then return to the present and go shopping at one of the modern shopping centers, and finally take the subway, running under the Vistula River, to gaze into distant galaxies at the Copernicus Science Center. During summers, the city hosts numerous events available free of charge, including concerts and music festivals, open air film screenings, and entry to many art galleries and museums.
