Poland is currently among the top countries in the world for higher education. There are more than 400 institutes that offer higher education in Poland. However, what makes Poland one of the best places to study? I will try to indicate the reasons.
I checked “Times Higher Education’s World University Rankings 2022” and https://study.gov.pl/ web page where you can find the best universities in Poland and the advantages you will get if you choose it.
This web sites mostly contain promotions and only the bight site, but one fact is checked by international students and mostly is true, that Poland is ideal for student’s budget. Warsaw is the most affordable European student city according to the 2016 QS Best Student Cities index. After pandemic and Russian invasion in Ukraine, there is increasing rate of inflation in Poland too, but still in comparison to other EU countries, Poland is the most affordable.
Second reason is also obvious, it is the Central Europe, (Never call Poland Eastern Europe). Poland is a member of the European Union (EU), the Schengen Area, North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), United Nations (UN), International Monetary Fund (IMF), United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF), World Health Organization (WHO), World Trade Organization (WTO), Organization for Cooperation and Development (OECD) and many others. Diplomas from Poland universities is recognized by the whole European Union, you have access to the European Union’s study programs and are able to do internships or traineeships abroad. Some of the Medical degrees are recognized by USA too.
Do not forget that Poland has a favorable geographic location. Poland borders Germany, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Ukraine, Belarus, Lithuania and Russia (the Kaliningrad exclave). Its northern border (440 km long) runs along the Baltic Sea coast. Poland cities have an excellent transport connection to the whole European Union, so you can travel a lot.
Third reason is the country itself. Poland has a reach history and the cities you will love to visit: Warszawa (Warsaw) , Kraków (Cracow) , Wrocław , Gdańsk , Poznań, Łódź . Everyone would visit these cities, but there is much more to discover in Poland. You can find 25 “must do” things in Poland on this link https://study.gov.pl/25-things-do-poland .
So, why don’t you plan your next degree in Poland?!
