We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
With a history of higher education stretching back to the 14th century and free tuition at its public universities, Poland makes for an appealing postgraduate destination. Studying a Masters in Poland represents a chance to receive an internationally recognised qualification in a country at the heart of Europe.
Postgraduate study in Poland is an opportunity to take advantage of the country’s modern, forward-thinking higher education system. Polish universities follow the Bologna Process, which means courses will be accredited and recognised worldwide.
Poland maintains a policy of free tuition for EU/EEA nationals at its public universities. Combined with the low cost of living there, this makes Poland one of the most affordable places in Europe to study.
Poland’s location at the centre of Europe is another big draw for international students. Sharing borders with seven other countries, Poland is a member of the Schengen Area, making travel to neighbouring countries convenient and hassle-free.
There are almost 35,000 international students currently studying abroad in Poland.
Masters programmes in Poland are generally two years in length.
If you’re an EU/EEA national, you won’t have to pay any tuition fees at a public university in Poland. Other international students usually have to pay fees, which average at €2,000 per year for a normal Masters in a Polish public university.
Meanwhile, private universities are free to set their own fees, which are generally €2,000 to €6,000 per year.
Although the primary language of instruction in Poland is Polish, many Masters programmes are taught entirely in English.
If you’re an EU/EEA national, you won’t need a visa to study in Poland. However, you will need to apply for a residence permit once you’ve arrived in the country (EU/EEA citizens can only stay in Poland for 91 days without a permit, and your Masters will last longer than this).
If you’re not an EU/EEA national, you’ll need to apply for a visa before you arrive in Poland. As this student visa will only be valid for 12 months, you’ll probably also need to apply for a residence permit at some point.
For more information, take a look at our guide to studying a Masters in Poland, which contains lots of useful information about the Polish higher education system, tuition fees, visas and health insurance. You can also visit our guide to student life in Poland, which covers accommodation, living costs and work.
