Why study in Poland?

Poland has signed the Bologna Declaration, which aims to create the European Higher Education Area. Institutions of higher education in Poland have implemented the ECTS (European Credit Transfer System). They are also engaged in international student exchange, based on individual school activity and programs such as Erasmus+. The Diploma Supplement facilitates international recognition of completed education and the acquired qualifications.

The Polish State Accreditation Committee is responsible for monitoring and controlling educational standards in Polish institutions of higher education. The Committee cooperates with accreditation offices in other countries.
