Study in Poland

Poland is one of the most popular study destinations in the world with people coming from far and wide to benefit from the universities that have a long an illustrious history in one of Europe’s most interesting and dynamic countries. The first Polish university (Jagiellonian University) was established in 1362 making it the nineteenth oldest university in the world. Now there are over five hundred Higher Education intuitions in the county making Poland one the leading countries in educating international students.

The first polish state can be traced to 966 and Poland, despite a history which involved occupation in the Second World War and eventually communist rule, has successfully preserved its cultural heritage and language. Modern Poland is an advancing economy and is one of the fastest growing in the European Union. Just take a look at Warsaw and you will see a capital city with new boulevards and skyscrapers to cater to the increasing economic activity Poland is experiencing.

Poland also has a long history of Medical Education and Poznan University of Medical Sciences has been educating leading health professionals since 1919. Poland is also the county with the most four year graduate entry medical programme saving eligible graduates two years of education and fees in their pursuit of medical education. As you can imagine, this makes the country and university very popular with graduates from across the world especially the United States of America. More and more students from across continental Europe, the United Kingdom, East Asia and West Africa are choosing to benefit for the excellent education and facilities at Polish Medical universities.

There is so much to see and do in Poland and the size of the country means you will have to plan effectively to make the most of your time in one of Europe’s largest countries. According to the 2014 Global Peace Index, Poland is one of the safest countries in the word in which to live. The low cost of living and the benefits of studying in one of Europe’s largest countries with a prestigious history of Higher Education means studying in Poland is one of the most popular options for those pursuing their medical education in Europe.
