Study in Poland


The huge wave of Polish migration to the UK after the accession of the country into the EU back in 2004 has been well documented. But over the past few years, the traffic between the two nations has become increasingly two-way, with a reported rise in the number of Brits moving to the Eastern European country. Some of these are students, drawn to the country for its low tuition fees and similarly low cost of living.There are over 400 courses offered in English in Poland, many of which are at undergraduate level.

In particular, the country’s medical schools are attracting an increasing number of overseas students who have been unable to get into a medical training programme in their own country. However, while many medical courses are conducted in English, Polish language skills are likely to become necessary by the time students begin consultations with patients.

Like many other EU countries, Poland offers inexpensive or even free tuition to EU students. But the cost of living is much lower than Western or Northern Europe, meaning the total cost of a university education can be significantly less.

Poland has some well-respected universities, although on an international scale, it is perhaps unsurprising it fails to make the same type of impact on international rankings as universities in the US, the UK and Western Europe. The University of Warsaw (338th in the 2013–14 QS World University Rankings) and Jagiellonian University (376th) are among the country’s most highly respected institutions.

For high quality of polish educational system:
Polish university education system has a history of 650 years of educating high profile professionals. It resulted with a profit not only for Poland, but also for many countries all over the world, where the Poles brought their profesionalism and the spirit of innovation. Want some examples? Ignacy Domeyko established the geology research in 19th century Chile. Between 1872 and 1876 Ernest Malinowski built the world’s highest located railroad in Peru. Bronisław Malinowski was a creator of modern anthropology. Ten Nobel Prizes were awarded to Polish artists, scientists and other public figures. Maria Skłodowska-Curie is one of only four laureates to receive a prize twice.

Polish academic traditions reach back to 14th century. The Jagiellonian University in Kraków was established in 1364, as the second university in Central Europe. Today’s Polish universities continue the glorious traditions of their predecessors. Warsaw University ifor example is ranked first in the Top Coder international IT ranking.

Polish specialists of all professions are highly appreciated by the recruiters worldwide. Especially Polish doctors, engineers, architects and IT specialists are acclaimed, but other Polish graduates are also considered to be fully prepared to compete on a global job market.

The quality of the system is guaranteed by State Accreditation Committee, which monitors all Polish higher education institutions. According to its control results, over 80% of the Polish universities have outstanding and good rankings.

For low costs of studying and living:
Although Poland undergoes through a process of rapid economic development, the cost of living is still significantly lower than in most of the EU countries. A total amount of 200-400 Euros is enough to cover the basic cost of accommodation, food and transport. The cost of entertainment and participation in cultural events are also much lower than EU average. The basic cost of studies is also very competitive. The minimum rate is 2000 Euro a year, what’s a few times lower than the EU average.

For rapid economical development:
Since 20 years Polish economy has significantly been growing. According to Central Statistical Office’s data, Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in 2008 was in real terms 4.8 per cent higher than in 2007. In 2007 GDP recorded 6.7 per cent growth. The rate of the value added growth for whole economy in 2008 was 4.9 per cent (6.6% in 2007). According to the latest European Commission’s forecast, in 2010 the GDP growth may dip to 2.0 per cent. Taking into account, however, international crisis and -1.8 per cent GDP growth forecast for the EU-25, Poland’s result is a symptom of Polish strong economy. The unemployment level decreases very quickly, falling from almost 20% in 2004 to 9,5 % in 2009.

For high level of personal security:
Is spite of popular image, Poland is much safer than most of the European countries. Even the Nordic countries, considered as very safe, have much higher crime rate than Poland. It’s perfectly safe in here for international students of all races, beliefs and origins.

For outstanding culture and entertainment offer:
Polish culture is well known in the world, for both historical heritage and present achievements. Five Polish writers were rewarded with Nobel Prize. Historical composers like Karol Szymanowski, Fryderyk Chopin and Ignacy Paderewski, and present ones like Henryk Górecki, Witold Lutosławski or Krzysztof Penderecki wrote new chapters in the history of music. Academy Award winners Andrzej Wajda, Janusz Kamiński, Roman Polański, Golden Palm winner Krzysztof Kieślowski and many other film industry artists are recognized all over the world. Polish cultural institutions provide high quality entertainment for all tastes. The number of festivals, book fairs, concerts, gigs, and other kinds of entertainment is massive. There’s also something for sport fans. In 2012 Poland will host the UEFA European Football Championships. On of the most important sport events in the world will attract thousands of fans from all Europe.

Poland holds the fourth place in Europe (after the United Kingdom, Germany and France) in terms of the number of people enrolled in higher education. The total student population, at over 450 university-level schools, is almost 2 million. Each year, almost half a million young people begin their learning at higher education institutions here. Polish university-level schools offer over 200 first-rate fields of study as an integral part of the European Higher Education Area. Most higher education institutions also offer their courses in foreign languages.Polish science is getting stronger and more competitive in the world. Well-trained and very talented researchers work in modern laboratories, participate in international research groups and projects and receive national and international grants. Thanks to the reform of science implemented by the ministry and dynamic growth of funds for science Poland created great conditions for researchers, especially junior scientists. It is the first country in the European Union to support the young generation of scientists in broad, systemic manner.
