- We are pleased that once again the Polish National Agency for Academic Exchange, jointly with Polish universities, will be able to present its offer to Polish youth. The fair for Polish youth organized in New York in 2022 was a great success, but also a confirmation that we were right to organize such meetings - says the Polish National Agency for Academic Exchange Director, Dawid Kostecki, PhD. We hope that the opportunity to have direct talks to university representatives, as well as the Polish National Agency for Academic Exchange delegation, will encourage to take advantage of our scholarship programs –  continues Director Kostecki.

February 4, at 10:00 am – 5:00 pm

Why Poland?

There are many arguments for choosing Poland as a place to study. Studies at Polish public universities are free of charge, and if you choose a field of study conducted in English, the studies, although paid, are very attractive. The cost of living in Poland, even in times of inflation, is still much lower than in other parts of Europe or the USA, and university diplomas from Poland, as a European Union member state, are valued not only in Europe.

During meetings, study candidates will be able to learn, among others, what documents are required when submitting applications, what the conditions for studying in Poland are and what scholarships are offered by individual universities and institutions. It shall also be an opportunity to learn about the offers of courses at individual universities, and many of them offer new products that meet the needs of the modern market. It should also be emphasized that Polish physics, astronomy and mathematics rank very high in field rankings, and students of engineering and technical faculties are successful, e.g. in the Mars rover competitions every year.

Polish community and international exchange scholarship program

Scholarships offered by the Polish National Agency for Academic Exchange may be an incentive to choose Polish universities. One of the Agency's most popular programs, the Polish National Agency for Academic Exchange Anders, is addressed to young people of Polish origin who have the Pole's Card or Polish citizenship and citizenship of another country and want to undertake first-cycle studies, uniform master's studies or second-cycle studies in Poland. The program is very popular every year, and it gives Poles living all over the world a chance to study in Poland for free.
