Types of Institutions in Poland

Poland has 470 organisations of higher education, 130 among them are universities and colleges subsidised by the administration (or government-owned, if you will). What it worth is that the country has a substantial number of educational institutes. Even more remarkably, education in Poland is essentially free (well, citizens recompense the tax, so the charges for schools are secondary). This in turn displays the variety of choice that a regular student has – one can select either a state or a community school.

At present Higher Education Institutions in Poland offer both university-type and vocational education. Most of these institutions perform scientific research and have the right to award both academic degrees and professional titles.

The types of studies they offer are:
  • Vocational Courses - graduates are granted bachelor level titles of: inżynier (inż) or licencjat (lic.);
  • Complementary Magister-Level Courses for holders of professional titles – inżynier (inż) or licencjat (lic.), the graduates get hold of the title of magister or equivalent;
  • Uniform Magister-Level Courses - graduates are awarded master level titles of: magister (mgr), magister sztuki, magister edukacji (mgr ed.), magister inżynier architekt (mgr inż. arch.), magister inżynier (mgr inż.), or lekarz (lek.), lekarz st
  • PhD Studies for Magister-Level Graduates; graduates obtain the academic degree of doktor;
  • omatolog (lek. stom.), lekarz weterynarii (lek. wet.);
  • Post-Graduate Studies.
