30% of International Students in Poland in 2023 Were From India

Last year, over 10,000 international students registered in Poland, around 3,000 of them from India. Indian students’ interest in studying in Poland is attributed to its high-quality education system, cultural diversity, and remarkably affordable living costs.

Polish authorities recently revealed that although Poland is a popular destination for Indian students, it rejected approximately 18 per cent of their visa applications.

The first type of visa that Poland issues to these students is C-type (Short-term), valid for up to 90 days, and suitable for short courses or exchange programs.

The other is called a D-Type Visa (Long-term). This national visa is renewable and valid for over 90 days, usually up to one year. At the same time, it’s the most common visa for students enrolling in degree programs.

Cost of Studying in Poland

Polish universities boast some of the most competitive tuition fees in Europe, as the cost of studying in Poland is significantly lower than in other EU countries, typically ranging from 30 per cent to 50 per cent less. On the other hand, in comparison to the United States and the United Kingdom, studying in Poland can be up to 70 per cent cheaper.

The cost of studying in Poland for Indian students varies depending on the program and the university. Tuition fees range from INR 2 lakh ($2,395) to INR 7 lakh ($8,383) per year. Meanwhile, living expenses, including accommodation, food, transport, and personal expenses, average around INR 6 lakh ($ 7,183) per year.
