Low Tuition Universities in Poland with Tuition Fees

List of low tuition universities in Poland, Tuition fees, cost of living, admission requirements and how to apply are what we are going to discuss now. Unlike recent years when education was not worth mentioning in Poland due to high tuition fees, cost of living and most importantly, lack of English as language of instruction. But now, almost all students want to study in Poland. 

Tuition fees and cost of living in Poland are very cheap and affordable. Also, there are numerous courses that are taught in English.  Education in Poland cost much less than most other European countries and cost of living is lower as well. Poland is situated in the center of Europe and courses like Engineering, Medicine, Humanities, and Sciences etc. are operating at the International standard.

Admission requirements

Undergraduate program; as an international student aspiring to study in Poland, you must satisfy the minimum entry requirement to gain admission into a Polish university. For an undergraduate study, a minimum of a high/secondary school result bolstered with good grades is usually needed. International students whose first language is not English may need to prove their proficiency in the language.

Postgraduate program; If you want to study at the postgraduate level, you must have a minimum of a bachelor’s degree with a lovely grade (minimum of second class for a master’s program is still good). Also, you must provide a strong motivation letter stating how serious you will face your academics, motivations, educational background, achievements etc. Endeavor to visit your school of choice’s webpage for deeper information on this.


Cost of living

Cost of living in Poland is one of the lowest in Europe. There are many different options for getting a student’s accommodation in Poland. They vary depending on the city and higher education institution you choose. Many Polish HEIs have their own dormitories, which are usually the cheapest options available. However, most Polish students prefer to rent a room in a private apartment. 

An average costs of student living range from EUR 350 up to EUR 550. With this amount, a student can take care of his living expenses like feeding, buying books, traveling around town, paying for accommodation etc. This is just an estimated amount as a student may spend more or less.

Scholarships in Poland – University Scholarships

The Government of Poland furnishes international students with scholarships to help cut their expenses while on study. The scholarships include the following; ERASMUS, Scholarships within bilateral agreement, Vise grad scholarship program, Fulbright program, scholarships for students from developing countries etc.


Work and study

As an International student, you are allowed to combine work and study. Non-EU/EEA students, who stay in Poland with a visa generally, will need to apply for a work permit which is granted only if no EU citizen can fill the position. Some forms of work (summer jobs, obligatory internship) do not require a permit as long as you are a full-time student. Full-time students who possess a temporary residence permit, EU/EEA citizens and holders of the Card of the Pole do not need a work permit at all.

How to apply for admission

Visit the webpage of the school you want to study in for proper guidelines on how to apply. Also, you can stay in your home country and apply since all the universities in Poland accept online applications.

Climatic condition

Poland has a moderate climate with both maritime and continental elements. The weather changes erratically thus rendering it unpredictable. You can count on many sunny days and many rainy days and don’t be surprised when the summer turns out to be quite hot or quite rainy. Winters are usually cold, with temperatures well below freezing, and more or less snowy. If you come from a warmer climate, make sure you have proper clothing.
