Eligibility

Every foreign candidate who wishes to study in Poland must hold a Maturity Certificate in order to qualify for admission to an academic institution. A certificate of the completion of a higher secondary school abroad may be accepted if the total duration of the education leading to the certificate has been at least 11 years. Secondary school matriculation certificates awarded abroad and secondary school completion certificates from abroad are considered as the equivalent to the matriculation certificates of public secondary schools and secondary vocational schools if: they contain a clause confirming the right to apply for admission to academic institutions in the country where the certificate was issued. If this is not the case, the applicant must supply, together with the school certificate, a letter from the school or from an appropriate authority in the country where the certificate was issued (i.e. the Ministry of Education, local educational authority etc.) stating that with such a certificate the candidate is eligible for admission to an academic institution.

The Polish foreign service representative office or a consular office can offer advice on how to obtain such a document [Documents issued in one country which need to be used in another country (i.e. Poland) must be authenticated or legalized before they can be recognized as valid by Polish authorities. The apostille is the legalization provided by the appropriate institution in the country where the document/certificate was issued ] or can assess as to whether the presented certificate entitles the holder to apply to a university in Poland.

A Polish visa will be issued upon the presentation of the health insurance and the original receipt for the payment of fees.
