In September we'll be attending a language course for foreigners who want to study in Polish at a Polish University. By the end of the 8 month course we should have university level skills in speaking, reading and writing. We'll be attending the Uniwersytet Mikołaja Kopernika (University of Nicolas Copernicus) in Toruń (about a 50 minute drive from our soon-to-be home in Włocławek).
Our applications are in the mail. This is the first step in obtaining our visas, and already we can tell it is going to be a long process:
-bank transfer of application fee's to the university's account
-our degrees legalized by the Polish Consulate
-a notarized copy of our degrees
Once we are accepted as students, our entrance letters will help us in the visa process.
This process is a tangible marker of the beginnings of our life in Poland.
