The workload of an Erasmus course at the University of Warsaw is a lot less than what is expected of a normal academic year at the University of Manchester. This is great during your study abroad as it meant that you have a nice balance between studying and doing things like socialising, travelling, and enjoying the change of lifestyle and culture.
This was also a great opportunity to study a wide range of subjects that had never been on offer to me before in Manchester. I studied the following modules on the Law Erasmus+ programme.
- Criminalistics and Forensic Studies
- EU Food Law
- EU Medical Law and Bioethics
- International Organizations
- Mergers And Acquisitions
- Mixed Jurisdictions Worldwide
- Applied Criminology
- Commercial Law and the Basic Institutions of Company Law
- Constitutional Law
- Freedom Of Speech in The Us Supreme Court Jurisprudence
- Legal Mediation
- Polish Criminal Procedure
All of these were super interesting and engaging topics to study and the lecturers were top class. My favourite class was criminalistics and forensics as it was very hands on when we were analysing fingerprints and DNA samples.
As well as the nature of academic life in Warsaw, the campus itself was so beautiful too, which makes it an enjoyable place to study. The botanical rooftop library garden was a real highlight.
Overall, university life at the University of Warsaw was incredible and I would really recommend a applying for the academic side of the university alone, not just the amazing city it is in!
