Poland is a country rich in history and has a long history of university education. Poland have been a much loved study destination recently.
After the United Kingdom, Germany and France, Poland stands fourth in Europe, in terms of the number of people enrolled in higher education. The number of students at over 400 university level schools is almost 1.5 million. Each year almost half a million young people begin their education at universities and colleges. Courses in foreign languages are offered by most schools.
The Bologna Process is actively followed in Poland. The three-stage education modelled on Bachelor/Master/Doctoral studies as well as the European Credit Transfer System, is followed in Poland & hence both Polish students and foreigners studying in Poland are able to continue their education elsewhere in the European Union. In the Erasmus Program, over 43,000 foreign students have come to study in Poland while almost 100,000 students from Poland have taken part of their education in another country within the European Union. They can study not only medicine, biotechnology or engineering, but also art and business. The diploma awarded to them upon graduation is recognised not only Europe-wide but also in key countries of the world.
