University of Tourism and Recreation in Warsaw

Private and public universities in Poland are an excellent choice for those applicants who dream of getting an education of European quality and status, but at a relatively low cost.

This is especially true for residents of the CIS and young people who live in the European part of Russia.

Benefits of education in Polish universities

The main advantages of getting an education in Polish universities include the following:

    • for the majority of students, a very relevant question arises about how much it costs to study in Poland. Universities in Poland require almost the same cost as a semester of study at universities in the Russian Federation, paradoxically, but such nuances as accommodation, food and travel are equivalent to prices in Russia;

    • obtaining a European diploma and the theoretical possibility of employment in a specialty in Europe. Studying in Poland for Russians has this advantage as a basis for applicants from Russia and the CIS. The rating of Polish universities is quite large in Eastern Europe and is quoted for employment in Western Europe;

    • It goes without saying that in Poland teaching is conducted in Polish, but English is actively used as an alternative. Polish courses are open at universities, the cost of the entire university course in Polish is much cheaper;

    • admission to Polish universities includes exams in the form of testing and interviews;

    • students receive scholarships and various social subsidies. According to the law on education, the scholarship in Poland is 25% of the subsistence minimum and ranges from 100 to 150 euros;

    • a visa for students in Poland is issued for the period of education and an additional 4 months are given to apply for work and obtain a residence permit and citizenship;

  • studying in Poland for Russians will not seem like something extraordinary due to the proximity of cultures and belonging to the Slavic language group and ethnicity.

Polish education for foreign citizens, especially for residents of the CIS countries, is becoming more and more popular. And this is no accident, because the highest level of education in Poland is conducted according to the Bologna system, which means receiving an international diploma. In addition, the territorial location of Poland, integration policy and its high economic level play an additional positive role in attracting students and those wishing to live in this country.

How the educational system works in Poland

The education system in the Republic of Poland is simple and accessible to everyone. It includes three steps, which are both mandatory and optional:

  • preschool education and training;
  • secondary school education (school, technical school, lyceum);
  • higher educational level.

Preschool preparation

Preschool education consists of two periods:

  • Attending kindergarten at the age of three to six. This period is characterized by a playful form of educational and educational activities. Children are taught the alphabet, the basics of writing, drawing, the study of nature. There are a sufficient number of state free preschool institutions in the Polish Voivodeships. As an alternative to municipal institutions, there are also private paid gardens. In them, children can additionally learn foreign languages. This stage is optional for visiting, but desirable, as there is a smoother and more comfortable socialization of children.
  • Zero class. Direct preparation of a child for school from 6 years old. It is carried out on the basis of a kindergarten. This stage is mandatory for both residents of Poland and visitors.

In kindergartens, it is widely practiced round-the-clock stay of children up to 14 days with an urgent need for such assistance for moms and dads.

For families who support the religious traditions of the church, there is an opportunity for a child to attend a parish school. Preschoolers will additionally learn the basics of religion.

School education consists of three stages:

Modern youth are increasingly striving to get a high-quality and decent education, realizing that this is the first step on the way to high salaries and a successful career. It is no coincidence that Polish universities have been very popular among graduates of Belarusian schools in recent years. On the one hand, it is geographically close, and on the other, there is an opportunity to get a European-level diploma. At the same time, education in Poland for Belarusians is sometimes available free of charge; moreover, when entering a university, it is often not even necessary to pass exams.

The specifics of the Polish education system and its advantages

Education in Poland is more accessible than in other European countries. At the same time, the quality of education is at a fairly high level - many Polish universities occupy leading positions in the rankings of the best universities in Europe.

In addition, getting an education in Poland is beneficial for a number of reasons:

  • the proximity of the Belarusian and Polish languages, as well as cultures;
  • the possibility of subsequent employment;
  • learning additional languages ​​(Polish, English);
  • gaining experience of living in the European Union.

The education system in Poland is quite simple in structure and includes:

  • preschool ;
  • secondary - general or vocational;
  • higher education.

Each stage has its own characteristics, but the main distinguishing feature is compulsory education in secondary education institutions (lyceums or technical schools), after which students take a special test - matura.

Education in preschool institutions

Preschool education in Poland starts at the age of 3. There are both public (free) and private kindergartens (you have to pay to attend them). In accordance with Polish law, children who have turned 5 years old and who live in Poland, even without citizenship, are obliged to attend a preschool institution (preschool institution) during the year, since this is a necessary stage of preparation for school.

This is one of the differences between the Polish system of preschool education and the Belarusian one, where, if you wish, you can not go to preschool education at all.

Receiving secondary and secondary vocational education for Belarusians in Poland

The Polish school (or basic school, Szkola podstawowa) provides an opportunity for people from Belarus to get secondary education. The term of study in it is 6 years, after which the students continue their studies at the gymnasiums (Gimnazjum).
