While Poland is experiencing a phase of rapid economic growth, the cost of living is still considerably lower than in most EU countries. A limit of EUR 200-500 is sufficient to meet the minimum costs of lodging, food and travel.
The cost of leisure and engagement in cultural activities is also significantly smaller than the EU average. The basic costs of the studies are therefore very competitive. The estimated minimum rate is around EUR 2000-5000 per year (depending on the area of study), which is a few times smaller than the EU average.
Strong standard of personal protection
Poland is much better than other European countries. Even the Nordic countries, perceived to be very peaceful, have a far higher crime rate than Poland. It’s completely appropriate for foreign students of all cultures, ideologies and backgrounds.
For Excellent Culture and Entertainment
Polish culture is well known in the country, both for its ancient history and for its current accomplishments. The Nobel Prize was awarded to five Polish authors. Historical composers such as Karol Szymanowski, Fryderyk Chopin and Ignacy Paderewski, and contemporary composers such as Henryk Górecki, Witold Lutosławski and Krzysztof Penderecki have written new chapters in the history of music.
Academy award winners Andrzej Wajda, JanuszKamiński, RomanPolański, Golden Palm winner Krzysztof Kieślowski and several other film industry artists are honoured worldwide. Polish cultural establishments offer high-quality entertainment to all tastes. The number of festivals, book fairs, concerts, gigs, and other kinds of entertainment is huge.
There’s plenty for sports lovers, too. Poland hosted the UEFA European Football Championships in 2012. One of the most popular sporting competitions in the world would draw thousands of fans from all over Europe.
