STUDIES IN POLAND – TOP QUALITY IN THE WORLD
Latest OECD education ranking, the biggest international education ranking to date, places Poland 5th in Europe and 11th in the world, ahead of Britain and the United States. Alumni of Polish universities are commonly respected and their diplomas widely recognized. A great advantage is the fact that high quality comes with a low price, because of economic differences. For many countries the price of Polish zloty is low, therefore studies cost a few times less than in the UK or USA, so you can save money, without giving up quality. Practically all universities and colleges accept international students from abroad.
