Study in Poland for international students
Poland is a great country to study in. You will find a wide range of courses at very competitive prices. Our universities are prepared to accept foreign students, and the university cities offer not only a good learning environment, but also plenty of other attractions.
Our country has a great tradition of education. The oldest Polish university – the Jagiellonian University in Krakow – was founded in the 14th century and is one of the oldest universities in Europe. And so our higher education has its roots in the Middle Ages!
Aditionally today our education can be considered according to European standards. In almost every big city there are public and private universities – thanks to this our educational offer is very vast and rich. We are constantly adapting and enriching it. Diplomas gained in our country are recognized in other EU countries. They can be also more and more easily nostrified in the US, Canada and Australia. Studies in Poland will help you to increase your chances of getting a good job in the European Union and anywhere else!
The high standard of our universities is evidenced by the number of Polish scientists who have made a career around the world. Did you know that the first almost total face transplant in the United States was carried out by a team of surgeons under the direction of a Polish woman, Dr. Maria Siemionow, a graduate of the Medical University in Poznań?
Choosing to study in Poland, you have a chance to get a scholarship from the Polish government, and there are many other opportunities to reduce the cost of studying in our country.
If you want to come to study in Poland, you must meet certain requirements. But no worries! They are no more complicated than those in your country, and here Think Poland agents will do everything to help you. First, you need to have graduated from a school that allows you to start college. Secondly, you should legalize your stay in Poland for the duration of your studies. Thirdly, you need to take care of your health and safety. Finally, depending on the language of instruction during your studies, you will need a certificate attesting your language knowledge at a sufficient level, especially if you would like to study in Polish.
Health and safety
In addition, when coming to Poland for studies, you need a medical certificate stating the absence of contraindications for undertaking studies at the chosen program. Connected to this is also a requirement that you are insured during your stay in Poland. As the medical care in Poland is not free of charge, you should get yourself an insurance policy in case of illness or accident for your whole period of stay in Poland. If you are a citizen of the EU and have a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC), you can make free use of Polish medical care . But if you do not have such card or you are not an EU citizen, you can subscribe to the National Health Fund for about 40 PLN per month. Citizens of the UK, Sweden and Slovakia, on the basis of bilateral agreements, can benefit from Polish medical care free of charge, and students from the Czech Republic can use it in case of a sudden illness or accident. If you have any doubt as to the choice of insurance for the duration of your stay in Poland, do not hesitate to contact for help one of Think Poland agents. That's what we are here for!
