Education and Qualifications

The system of primary and secondary education in Poland differs slightly from the one in the United Kingdom. The higher education system is very much similar to the ones in other EU Member States.

 

A general outline of the Polish educational system on primary, secondary, and higher level can be found in a report prepared by the Polish Ministry of National Education and the Ministry of Science and Higher Education for the EURYDICE network – which can be found here.

 

Studies in Poland

The Ministry of Science and Higher Education runs the Ready, Study, Go! Poland programme which provides all necessary information to foreign nationals willing to study in Poland on the dedicated http://www.go-poland.pl/ website. It contains information on studying both in Polish and in English as well as in other languages.

 

Websites of the relevant Polish universities provide extensive information on the specific requirements, timetables, contact details etc. concerning specific admissions procedures.

 

In order to start studies in Poland, a candidate should have a completed secondary education. In case of foreign nationals, it might be necessary to have the matriculation diploma formally recognised. More information on the matter can be found on the website of the Ministry of National Education.

 

Comprehensive information on recognition of foreign higher education diplomas (academic qualifications) in Poland can be found on the website of the Ministry of Science and Higher Education.
