Student's talk:
Putu Waluyo (Indonesia)
There are so many different types of schools offering higher education in Poland that at first I was a bit confused. Now, I tell my friends – If you are into all sorts of machines, engines and engineering – pick one of the Polytechnics. The rest you can learn at a University! ;)

In Poland, higher schools of education can be public or private. Public schools are those, which are financed fully or partially by the state. Private schools are fully financed from private funds. Universities are always public schools, as are medical universities. Whether your school is public or private can make a difference when you wish to apply for a state scholarship.

The following types of schools exist in Poland:

  • Universities
  • Polytechnics or Universities of Technology
  • Higher Schools of Pedagogy
  • Medical Schools or Medical Universities
  • Academies of Fine Art, Film or Theatre
  • Music Academies
  • Higher Schools of Physical Education
  • And others

If you are not sure which type of school would be most suitable for you, our Think Poland agents be happy to help you.
