Poland – Bydgoszcz

Hello guys, I’m participating in the contest from Yildiz Technical University. My name is Yiğit, I graduated from Food Engineering department this year (2019) and when I was in autumn semester of 4th year I have decided to change my life for 6 months! I wouldn’t normally go because we had a music group with serious goals and important works would begin at that time. But the desire for erasmus was always somewhere in me and it was like the last exit before the bridge for me. A friend of mine (Ece Tipigil) was also great effect in this decision I’m sending her a greetings from here 🙂  and, of course, after a painful process, we found ourselves in Bydgoszcz, Poland. erasmus bydgoszcz

Let’s Talk About Bydgoszcz…

When I saw first time Bydgoszcz, the fact that it is an unknown city and a small town immediately triggered my prejudices. But the exchange rate (PLN=Zloty) was satisfying me incredibly. It was also the best choice since I was not going to get grant. Lots of amazing memories have passed from here. We were like a family consisting of 30 people.

Where Did I Stay in Bydgoszcz During My Erasmus Semester?

We stayed Koszarowa 9A  Ds-1 Dorms and rooms were very large and comfortable. It costs 375 Zloty per month. Our ladies at the reception.. I missed them a lot. We travelled over 10 countries with maybe 30 cities. Whatever, enough for the emotionality 😀  Time to inform;

As you all know, passing in Erasmus courses in Poland is less troublesome than in other countries. In Bydgsozcz, I think it could be easiest one 😀 We were going for all courses. But some of them were finished too eary like 2 months before coming back to Turkey. And also final exams were test and so easy to get high score. Therefore, You can easily pass the exams with high scores. They are so many holidays. Biggest one is Christmas, it was like 2 weeks long. And this is the most satisfying period of your erasmus.
