Ministr Nauki i Szkolnictwa Wyższego prof. Barbara Kudrycka zachęca do przyjazdu do Polski i studiowania tu. Jak pisze prof. Kudrycka Polska jest czwartym największym krajem w Unii Europejskiej po Wielkiej Brytanii, Niemczech i Francji pod względem ilości studentów. Dla chętnych do studiowania z poza EU, Polska ze swoją tradycją akademicką sięgającą XIV w., europejskimi współczesnymi standardami i przyjazną atmosferą żakowską jest świetną bramą do odkrycia i poznania Europy.
List prof. Barbary Kudryckiej :
Poland’s traditions of academic education go back to 1364, when King Casimir
the Great established the Cracow Academy, known today as Jagiellonian
University. The Cracow Academy, one of the oldest in the world, took after
academies in Bologna and Padua, and was the second university in Central
Europe after the school in Prague. Around two centuries later, in 1579,
King Stefan Batory transformed the existing Jesuit College in Vilnius into
the Vilnius Academy, and in 1661 John Casimir, King of Poland, converted
the Jesuite College in Lviv into the Lviv Academy. Thus, by the end of the
17th century, the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth had three flourishing
universities, providing academic education to both national and international
Today, the Polish higher education system is developing dynamically. Poland
holds the fourth place in Europe (after the United Kingdom, Germany
and France) in terms of the number of people enrolled in higher education.
The total student population, at over 450 university-level schools, is almost
2 million. Each year, almost half a million young people begin their learning
at higher education institutions here. Polish university-level schools offer
over 200 first-rate fields of study as an integral part of the European Higher
Education Area. Most higher education institutions also offer their courses in
Poland plays an active part in the Bologna Process: owing to the introduction
of a three-stage education modelled on the Bachelor/Master/Doctor template
and the European Credit Transfer System, Polish students and foreigners
studying in Poland stay fully mobile, and can easily continue their education
elsewhere in the European Union. Within the Erasmus Programme alone,
running for 25 years, almost 30 thousand foreign students have come
to study in Poland, whilst almost 100 thousand students from Poland took
a portion of their education in another European Union country. Foreign students
coming to Poland can expect an attractive and diversified educational
range meeting high European standards; they can study medicine, biotechnology
and engineering, but also art and business. The diploma awarded
to them upon graduation is recognized not only in Europe.
For students from outside the European Union who come to study in Poland,
this may well mark the beginning of the fascinating adventure of discovering
Europe: being invited to study in Poland means that you are invited to
the European Union, of which Poland is an active member state. We invite you
to discover the European Union, which offers not only varied, interesting cultures
and the opportunities associated with strong, innovative economies, but
also provides excellent conditions for successful higher education in a challenging
and friendly atmosphere. With top-quality, internationally recognized
degrees, almost no other region in the world can set your career off on such
a promising start. This guide will provide you with the information you need
to begin. Come to the European Union.
Start from Poland!
