Why Study in Poland?
More and more students each year are choosing to study abroad in Poland. These students are drawn to its high-quality education institutions, low tuition fees, and equally low cost of living.
Located at the center of the Northern European plain, Poland serves as the geographical and cultural crossroads of Eastern and Western Europe. Poland has been a nation of survivors since the foundation of the first Polish state more than 1,000 years ago. Today, Poland is the largest of the former Eastern European states and the most populous new member of the European Union.
Education System in Poland?
Poland’s education system dates back to the Middle Ages. There are over 400 courses offered in English in Poland, many of them at an undergraduate level. The number of higher education institutions in Poland has quadrupled over the past ten years, while the number of students increased fivefold. International students who choose to study in Poland will have the opportunity to receive a quality education in a quickly burgeoning academic environment. All leading universities in Poland offer high-quality programs taught in English, including medicine, engineering, humanities, business, and finance.
Tuition and cost of living
The cost of living in Poland is far lower than in Western or Northern Europe, which means that the total cost of a university education is significantly less in Poland than elsewhere in Europe. The majority of universities in Poland provide some kind of student accommodation. However, due to the low cost – which can be as low as £80 per month for a shared room – the demand for such accommodation is high. If you are interested in pursuing university housing, you should contact your university as soon as you receive your acceptance letter. Many students in Poland choose to live in shared apartments or houses, with costs ranging from £100-£200 per month, depending on the location.
