Poland’s traditions of academic education go back to 1364, when King Casimir the Great established the Cracow Academy, known today as Jagiellonian University. The Cracow Academy, one of the oldest in the world, took after academies in Bologna and Padua, and was the second university in Central Europe after the school in Prague.
Today, the Polish higher education system is developing dynamically. Poland holds the fourth place in Europe (after the United Kingdom, Germany and France) in terms of the number of people enrolled in higher education. The total student population, at over 450 university-level schools, is almost 2 million. Each year, almost half a million young people begin their learning at higher education institutions here. Polish university-level schools offer over 200 first-rate fields of study as an integral part of the European Higher Education Area. Most higher education institutions also offer their courses in foreign languages.
Polish science is getting stronger and more competitive in the world. Well-trained and very talented researchers work in modern laboratories, participate in international research groups and projects and receive national and international grants. Thanks to the reform of science implemented by the ministry and dynamic growth of funds for science Poland created great conditions for researchers, especially junior scientists. It is the first country in the European Union to support the young generation of scientists in broad, systemic manner.
