Why study in Poland

Benefits of studying in Poland?

As a top international student destination, Poland provides an enriching cultural experience to incoming students worldwide. Most of those studying in Poland have only good things to say about the historical landmarks, beautiful landscapes, city life and the great variety of social activities. Many of them consider that the opportunity to study in Poland greatly helped their self-development.

“I will strongly recommend Gdansk for my friends, because it’s a very beautiful, magnificent city with many cultural events. It’s a city with a lot of opportunities – you can develop your personality by attending concerts, plays, museums, but also you can develop on your own. There is a huge business centre here. Worldwide-known companies are investing here, so students have really good opportunities to start their career. Knowledge of languages is a huge bonus, so Erasmus students can easily find a good job.” – Student from Lithuania

“I had a chance to reach the most popular libraries in the world (such as Emerald, Elsevier etc.) for free; I experienced the language and travelled to different countries (such as Hungary and Romania) with my Schengen visa. I made international friends and felt free to make my own decisions, to take risks and plan my future. After this experience, I’m not afraid of visiting other countries anymore. Besides, I feel much more educated (because of our master’s sharing experience).” – Student from Azerbaijan

One of the biggest advantages mentioned by students is the low tuition and living costs, which means it’s relatively affordable and accessible to study in Poland. The university staff and teachers are usually friendly and willing to help and – although there is room for improvement – the services provided at universities in Poland are above average.

“The teachers at CUE were very friendly and genuinely interested in our knowledge and background. They were keen to learn as much from us as we wanted to learn from them. I feel like I learned a lot from my exchange, as I was able to study subjects which I would not normally have chosen in Australia, particularly those relating to the EU.” – Student in Australia

“Compared to the majority of other European countries, Poland is a low-cost country where you can easily find accommodation at low prices. You also have a lot of opportunities to travel to other countries.” – Student in Portugal
