Life in Warsaw

Why Poland

  • Good quality of higher education
  • Safe
  • Low cost of studying and living
  • Rapidly developing economy
  • Lively culture

Poland is a fascinating country that is at the geographical and cultural crossroads of Eastern and Western Europe. Today, there are 140 state (public) higher education institutions and 261 private (non-public) ones. The system divides them into university-type and non-university institutions. The university-type HEI offers at least one doctoral programme.

Students pursue their studies at universities, technical universities and academies from October to February and from February to June.

The first-cycle studies, as per guidelines of the Bologna Process in European higher education, last 3-4 years (180-240 ECTS) and give the student an equivalent of a Bachelor’s degree. The second-cycle studies, i.e. the Master’s degree programme, last 1.5 – 2 years (90-120 ECTS). Master’s degree holders may enter the third cycle studies, the doctoral programme.

Poland needs qualified employees.

Many Polish students work while studying. Foreign students can work part-time. Our Career Office offers professional assistance in finding part-time employment, paid and unpaid internships and help qualified students in finding appropriate employment after the end of studies.

Poland is an economy governed by free-market rules, additionally circumscribed by EU regulations. Current GDP is USD 27,700 and the current purchasing power parity is $1.052 trillion. The inflation rate in June 2017 was -0.8%.

Poland used to be an ethnically homogeneous place. International students change this: major educational centres of Warsaw, Poznan, Gdansk, Cracow and other are becoming more culturally diverse.

Cultural events in Poland happen daily: concerts, shows, exhibitions, outdoor events and sports events. Sightseeing is excellent. Also, numerous cinemas, restaurants, cafes, recreation and wellness centres are waiting for you.

Perhaps Poland is your place in the world

Poland offers a great opportunity to experience living in another country and culture. Vistula Group of Universities offers you a chance to study in the heart of Europe in a lively, international environment, close to national and international business.
