Poland – a new destination for education

Poland serves as the geographical and cultural crossroads of Eastern and Western Europe. Since joining the European Union (2004) and Schengen (2007), Poland enjoys a crucial position as the largest of the former Eastern Europe states and one of the most populous and economically sound members of the European Union.

It is a modern and dynamic country full of opportunities for young people willing to get quality education, enhancing their knowledge, improving skills and boosting international experience. It is a hub bridging east and west, north and south, combining cosmopolitan attitude and rich historical legacy. With over 1.9 million students it boasts of the highest scholarisation indices in Europe.

Poland has a lot to offer to international students. It has over 400 public and private higher education institutions, many with centuries of old tradition, well-equipped and internationally recognized faculties. Poland’s education market is growing and the number of higher education institutions has increased five-fold while the number of students quadrupled. Each year almost half a million young people from the US, Canada, UK, Brazil, China, Pakistan, India, Ukraine, Russia, Scandinavian and other European and Asian countries begin their education at Polish universities and colleges.

Polish universities constantly strive for improvement. Qualified faculty, student-centred staff, modern facilities, and a variety of courses taught in English with a state-of-the-art methodology can make Polish universities a good choice for students. Following a generous funding from the European Union, all Polish universities boast of high-tech laboratories.

Due to the diminished demographics in Poland, universities are now particularly interested to take in more foreign students.

All leading universities of Poland offer Bachelors, Masters and PhD degree programmes that are taught in English. The most popular disciplines include medicine, engineering, architecture, humanities, business and finance.
