studied at PULS, Poland
rated 4.5 out of 5 stars
My stay in Poland was amazing. I made a lot of friends and integrated with the polish culture. PULS provided a comprehensive approach to learning, a conducive and cutting-edge environment for studying with friendly and approachable lectures. the favorite part of my program was the field trip to food companies. It was fun and educative.
