Two professors from Nicolaus Copernicus University visited ISSA Universidad de Navarra to explain to students the advantages of choosing their University for their Erasmus destination, a decision that students form the Bachelor's Degree in Management Assistance must make in their second year.

"There are 50 universities in Poland and the Nicolaus Copernicus University is the 5th best one" explained the professors in an interview.

Dorota Krupa and Michael Buszko teach at one of the 17 faculties that the University has, the Faculty of Economic Sciences and Management, which offers the Degree in Management, fully taught in English. "The University has students mostly from the North of Poland. There are Polish students and Erasmus students enrolled in that Degree. They choose the subjects that they want", describes Michael, who teaches in that program.

"Torun is a city quite similar to Pamplona. It has around 200.000 inhabitants, of which 30.000 are students. It is a Medieval city protected by UNESCO and very affordable", describes Dorota. "It is much cheaper thanWarsaw. A student residence provided by the University can cost you less than 100 euros a month. Food and entertainment are cheaper than in Spain, up to 20 to 30 % less expensive", described in detail the educator. Michael illustrates the difference using the price of a public bus single ticket. "A one way ticket on the public bus cost you 60 cents". You can even find the average price for many products and services at their website.

The mathematician and astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus was born in that Northern city of Poland. "The University has a very strong tradition of developing science", affirmed the professor Michael. There is a Faculty of Earth Sciences and a Faculty of Physics, Astronomy and Informatics,among others.

"It is a very safe city with many bars and cultural activities", say Dorota, while she showed pictures of the city and gaves an online tour around the Campus.
