Every year, more and more international students are choosing to study in Poland. Studying in Poland allows these students the opportunity to get to know the country’s rich culture, to see splendid historical monuments, to enjoy some of Europe’s largest and least spoiled natural habitats, and to sample wonderful cuisine. But these are not the only reasons to consider studying in Poland.
Poland has a history of academic excellence dating back to the Middle Ages. Jagiellon University was founded in the 14th century, and today is one of the oldest universities in Poland. Poland is home to several extremely well-respected universities, such as Jagiellon University and Warsaw University, which is often ranked as the best university in Poland.
All of the top universities in Poland offer high-quality programs taught in English, including courses in medicine, engineering, humanities, business, and finance.
The cost of tuition in Poland is exceptionally low - sometimes free to EU students. The University of Warsaw, for example, offers English language courses that cost between £1,300 and £2,500 per year. Tuition in Poland is generally far lower than elsewhere in the UK.
The cost of living in Poland is also significantly lower than in Western or Northern Europe. This makes Poland the great study destination for international students, many of whom are living on a budget.
The health care system in Poland is of a fairly high quality, but you will most likely want to purchase private health insurance coverage before you begin your trip. International students are required to provide proof of adequate health insurance coverage when they apply for a student visa. Having private health insurance in Poland will ensure you shorter wait times and a higher quality of treatment. Most people living in Poland - both citizens and foreigners - use private insurance to subsidize public health care.
Emergency health care is available free for everyone, including people without state health insurance. However, the quality of treatment may not be quite what you are used to, and there will likely be a significant time delay between calling the emergency services and receiving treatment.
