Why study in Poland
- High-Quality Universities: Poland has more than 450 HEIs (Higher Education institutions). There are also highly specialized universities which enable the formation of outstanding experts from a wide spectrum of fields.
- Price: Studying in Poland is cheaper than doing so in other parts of Europe. Tuition fees start from less than 1500 EUR per year and rarely go higher than 3000 EUR. Compared to the average fees of private universities in France, Germany, the UK or Scandinavia, this might be a big saving at the start of your studies.

Most of them are dedicated to students from Eastern European Partnership countries: Armenia, Georgia, Belarus, Moldova and Ukraine, but almost everybody can find a scholarship for which he or she is eligible.
