Study in Poland! An Open Day at the Embassy of Poland

Poland’s over 400 universities will tell Irish students why it is worthwhile considering moving to Poland for the next 5-6 years during an Open Day event at the Embassy of the Republic of Poland.

Poland has the largest number of higher education institutions in Europe and many of them are happy to enroll Irish, British and any other foreign students for their over 300 programmes taught through English. It is an impressive chunk of Poland’s 5 000 higher level courses.


Educational emigration becomes a fact: the first Irish student to study medicine in Bydgoszcz, Poland is one of many who choose 5-6-year migration. Taking into account Poland’s 650 years of higher education tradition and increasingly well-known high standards of teaching, programmes like medicine, nursing or physiotherapy see a huge interest from foreign students. Nearly 36 thousands of them (number growing at 17 per cent year on year) add to the general student population bringing Poland to the fourth place in Europe (after the UK, Germany and France) in the number of people attending third level colleges (almost 2 million).


“With diplomas recognized Europe-wide and in most world’s countries and the costs of living at a fraction of what a student would have to spend in other European cities (EUR 250 per month on average) Poland seems a perfect choice” confirms Artur Banaszkiewicz from the Polish Embassy in Dublin. “If an Irish teacher who visited Collegium Medicum in Bydgoszcz was hugely impressed with infrastructure “not seen in Ireland” and if she wants to talk about the experience during an Open Day at the Polish Embassy, we must be doing at least good.”

Information on studying in Poland provided by Ministry of Science and Higher Education as well as brochures, materials and advice on visiting Poland will be provided by the Polish National Tourist Office.
