Education Opportunities in Warsaw

| |
Over the past decades, Warsaw is becoming a popular academic city among foreign students, owing to a high level of education and tuitions cheaper than at the Western European universities. Even if you do not know Polish, several Warsaw universities offer courses as well as graduate and postgraduate programmes in English, French or German. The universities also cooperate with Socrates and Erazmus student exchange programmes all over Europe.

In Poland, full-time day studies at public Higher Education Institutions (HEI) are free of charge for Polish citizens and EU citizens. Foreign candidates who apply for full-time studies are admitted on the basis of their baccalaureate diploma results. In most cases they are also obliged to take either entrance examination or interview in the subject related to their field of study (if they wish to study in Polish, the interview will be held in Polish).

EU & EFTA citizens are enrolled for either full-time or part-time studies on the same conditions as Polish citizens and they may study free of charge (only full-time studies) or pay fees applicable to Polish students, depending on the study programme.
