Polish university education system has a history of 650 years of educating high profile proffesionals. It resulted with a profit not only for Poland, but also for many countries all over the world, where the Poles brought their proffesionalism and the spirit of innovation. Want some examples?

To qualify all international applicants must first meet the minimum requirements for entry into higher education in their own country, have a matriculation certificate or equivalent document; command of English (at least on an intermediate level) is also required.
Some departments of the arts, physical education, departments preparing students for the teaching profession, and the like, organize additional aptitude tests.
All graduating from Polish institutions of higher education receive a Diploma Supplement. The Supplement is available free of charge and is issued in Polish, and on request in other languages (English, German, French, Spanish or Russian). Since Poland ratified the Lisbon Convention on Recognition of Degrees in 2004 recognition of Polish diplomas has become easier inter-nationally.
