University admission

Who can apply to study medicine in Poland?

English taught programs at polish universities are open to all students, regardless of their country of birth, education or current residence. All international students are welcome to apply providing they meet the entry requirements.


Am I eligible to apply?

The main eligibility requirement is that the candidate must hold a secondary school certificate which allows them to apply to any type of university in the country where the document was issued.
Depending on the University, there might be one additional requirement. This is that grades from Biology, and one of three other science subjects (Chemistry, Physics or Math's) must be shown on the secondary school transcript/certificate.

Do I need to speak Polish to be able to study medicine in Poland?

No, prior knowledge of Polish language is not required. All programs are fully taught in English and in addition, Polish lessons are included in the study curriculum. This is to make it easier for the students to function in the everyday life in Poland and to assist during the clinical parts of the studies.

Can I apply before completing the last year of secondary school?

Yes, this is a common practice. High school students, while still in last year, can apply using predicted/provisional grades issued by high school. Our candidates come from countries with different education systems, so we know that final exams are sometimes taken very late or the final school certificates are issued after graduation. In such cases, the statement of provisional results can be used for the admission process. However, you will have to submit the final (official) secondary school certificate along with its legalisation before the academic year starts in September. In some cases, an extension to the deadline can be agreed. Desire2study will represent you and help with any issues with required documentation or deadline.


When does the academic year starts and ends?

Academic year runs from October to end of June. However before the 1st year begins there is an obligatory pre-course which starts in September. Some universities run this course online but you should be prepared to travel to Poland in early September in case the course is run on the campus. Desire2study as your agent will communicate the dates and place for the pre-course in advance.
