Reviews

“I had decided to continue my studies at Hochschule Zittau/Görlitz (Informatics) after graduation at Neisse University. During my master studies, I applied for a job at Toyota Peugeot Citroen Automobile (TPCA) to become Information Systems specialist. I was hired immediately thanks to all the things I have learned while studying at Neisse University and HSZG. I had deep knowledge about trends in IT plus my communication skills were high above average in the TPCA IS department. I personally recommend studying at Neisse University to everyone I meet. Neisse University is not only about the subject “Information and communication management”. It is a school of life – you live abroad, you feed yourself, you deal with other people, you have the possibility to speak four languages a day, etc. And there is a bonus of an incredible looking CV which unlocks the first door to your dream career.”

“After finishing Neisse University in 2011, I have entered another international study program. While Neisse provided me mostly with hard skills as computer literacy, CEMS Master in International Management is a more business-focused program. After spending an exhausting semester at prestigious Rotterdam School of Management and three semesters at the University of Economics, Prague, I am now about to finish it. During the past two years, I have gained professional experience through various internships in banking, management consulting and FMCG (fast moving consumer goods). Neisse University is definitely a step out of your comfort zone - studying with foreigners in English, moving in and out, subjects that range from programming to psychology. But without it, I would not have been able to achieve what I did, both personally and professionally. Last but not least, one gets to know amazing people. Neisse University opened me the door to pursue an international career. If you are not sure what you want to do but you want to work around the world, I can only recommend applying as this is a really great start that can help you to find your way.”
Marek Lejsek
“Studying at Neisse University altogether was a great experience. Particularly living and studying in 3 different countries, the language diversity and the cohesion of the study group have been stuck in my memory. To my mind, the seminars and lectures built a good knowledge base, and I was able to apply a few learned skills later in my career. Having selected a rather untypical course of studies attracted attention for further applications and has eventually been a great stepping stone for my academic and professional career. Due to the English-speaking environment at Neisse as well as the flexibility and openness gained there I was well prepared for my master studies that I completed entirely abroad. Currently works for Zürich Versicherungs-Aktiengesellschaft as communications manager.”
Katharina Wessels
“I met nice colleagues and teachers during my studies. They were very friendly and I am glad to stay in contact with them. Living in a different town for some time is different from coming there for a visit. l like that NEISSE UNIVERSITY allows us to study in different places. But most I appreciated the opportunity to do an internship in a foreign country.”
Zuzana Brozová
“If you are looking for something unique, NEISSE UNIVERSITY is the place to go. It is a perfect way to grow as a personality. During your journey you will meet a lot of people from different countries, creating unforgettable memories. Because of that uncommon setting, living in three different countries in such a short time, you‘ll certainly get the attention of most of the employers.”
David Braun
“I traveled a lot before starting university and was afraid of getting stuck in one place. Then I heard of NEISSE UNIVERSITY - changing environment each year will not let you get bored with your study and will provide constant stimulation to try new things. The program has all advantages of the Erasmus exchange program but additionally offers security and peace of mind - the accommodation and formal issues are taken care of for you. If I were choosing University again I would choose the NEISSE!”
Krzysztof Stankiewicz
“In 2007 I started the Neisse University as one of my nicest experiences in my study time. Even though, my holidays were shortened because of an English course with national speakers. This course did not just improve my English skills but it also socialized the class. As you already know the main idea was to put together at least 3 nations like Czech, Germany, and Poland. By having these different nations in one class it forces you to speak English not just at school but also when you are hanging out or doing sports. The English language was probably the most attractive thing to me in the beginning. The first year in the Czech Republic in Liberec was not so special to me because I used to live there before. The second year I understood how important my polish classmates were because they helped us to better integrate into the polish culture and to learn the polish language. Whereas in the Czech Republic we learned quite a lot about economics and maths in Poland it was more focused on programming. In Germany, I liked the teaching techniques of the lecturers the most which were little bit different than in the other two countries before. Unfortunately, the time in Germany is only for one semester because the last semester you have to do an internship where ever you want in the world. I along with many of my classmates took the opportunity to do it in Germany. I joined a start-up in Munich where I helped set up the company. My classmate and a good friend Ondřej and I enjoyed our experience so much that at the end of studies we decided to create a video on YouTube “Neisse university documentary” to make the information about the school more accessible and to give others the chance to try it as well. I feel very lucky with my studies compared to classmates from high school that went to well-known universities in Prague etc. I have often seen them fail, to quit or to be kicked out. The problem is for sure not in their intelligence but rather due to the fact that these universities have a huge amount of students that can be just treated as numbers. If you get in troubles and you need help, do not expect help from the university. I do not say it is a rule for all universities, for example, the Neisse University has a really friendly connection to their students because there is one lecturer and max 30 students in any kind of lesson. The Neisse University gave me a broad overview of communication, management and IT. It enabled me to discover the Polish culture in a way I hadn‘t been able to before, even though I had been living just 30 km from the border. The Neisse University showed me that nothing is impossible; it is just a matter of negotiation. After graduating I continued on to a Master‘s degree in Innsbruck.”
