Eligibility Criteria for study in Poland

Admissions to the study programs are administrated by the higher educations institutions (HEIs) and candidates apply directly to the institution of their choice. It is best to contact the international relations office of the given university well before the course starts in order to find out all the necessary details about the application procedures and other important information.

General requirements for admission to degree programs offered by higher education institutions in Poland are the same for both university-type and non-university HEIs. The candidate must hold a matriculation certificate (the Matura certificate) or another equivalent document attesting that the holder is eligible for admission to higher education in the country in which he or she completed secondary school.

Access to the doctoral programmes is open to applicants who hold a Master’s degree (magister or an equivalent degree) or a foreign second cycle degree recognised in Poland, and who meet the admission conditions laid down by the specific institution. The detailed admission conditions are laid down by the board of the entity authorised to offer doctoral programmes within an institution. While respecting such general admission requirements, each HEI may define its own additional admission conditions and procedures, including the number of places available to students, except in the medical fields of study (limited number of places). The admission conditions and procedures may be similar across a HEI or may vary according to the field of study. Different conditions and procedures may be applied by different HEIs for the same fields of study. The admission conditions andprocedures must be published by each HEI not later than 5 months before the admission process starts.
