• To serve Poland – to build Europe – to understand the world




    Poland’s traditions of academic education go back to 1364 when King Casimir the Great established the Cracow Academy, known today as the Jagiellonian University. The Cracow Academy, one of the oldest in the world, based itself on academies in Bologna and Padua, and, after the school in Prague, was the second university in Central Europe.


    Today, the Polish higher education system is developing dynamically. Poland holds 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 higher education institutions numbers almost 2 million. Each year almost half a million young people begin their education at universities and colleges. Polish universities offer more than 200 high quality study programmes as an integral part of the European Higher Education Area. Most schools offer their courses also in foreign languages.


    Foreign students coming to Poland can expect a most attractive and diversified education offer meeting the high European standards. They can study medicine, biotechnology or engineering, but also art and business. The diploma awarded to them upon graduation is recognized not only Europe-wide but also in most countries of the world.

    Many Polish higher education institutions offer education in foreign languages, mostly in English. All these studies are paid.
