Plan your studies

Study permit

The first step you need to take before taking up studies in Poland is to receive an entry permit. Depending on where you come from, you will need a personal ID card, a passport or a visa. The application process and the list of required documents are specified on the website of the university of your choice. No need to worry, International Students Affairs Offices will surely be of help!
