Poland is a modern and dynamic member of the European Union where education really counts. If you wish to learn more about our long and rich tradition of university education, which offers opportunities for young people aspiring to get a European degree recognised throughout the world, then you are invited to study in Poland.

Poland’s University traditions are among the oldest in Europe. In 1364, King Casimir the Great established the Cracow Academy, known today as Jagiellonian University. At the moment, our higher education system is developing rapidly and Poland is fourth in Europe (after the United Kingdom, Germany and France) in terms of the number of people studying at university.

The total student population at over 400 university-level schools is almost 2 million. Polish universities offer over 200 first-rate fields of study as an integral part of the European Higher Education Area, where the level of tuition fees compares favourably with other EU countries.

Poland also plays an active part in the Bologna Process thanks to the introduction of a three-stage education and the European Credit Transfer System. Foreigners studying in Poland can easily continue their education elsewhere in the European Union. Foreign students coming to Poland can expect an attractive and diversified educational range, which meets high European standards – they can study medicine, biotechnology and engineering, but also art and business. Their graduation diploma is recognised in Europe and elsewhere.

Additionally, the Polish higher education system is well developed. The quality of the education provided is monitored and regularly evaluated, by the main Polish institutions in charge of quality assurance in higher education, whom are: the Polish Accreditation Committee, the General Council of Higher Education and the Conference of Rectors of the Academic Schools in Poland.

There are over 5,000 courses available in Poland and each one of them has had to gain the “Polish Accreditation Committee’s” approval. Among them there are a number of fields of study that have received the grade, “Excellent”. The list of excellent fields of study is available at the Polish Accreditation Committee website.

Also by studying in Poland you can benefit from competitive costs of living and studying. Compared to other EU countries, the tuition fees in Poland are really competitive and the costs of living are a fraction of what a foreign student would have to spend in other European cities.
