RESPONSES TO THE LARGEST DIFFERENT QUESTIONS

 

  1. Is it possible to pay tuition monthly? Unfortunately no. At this time, foreign students can pay (for studying) at least semester cost.
  2. When should I pay tuition? Each university has its own payment regulations. However, it should be noted that most private educational institutions require payment (minimum of semester-based tuition fees) during the introductory semester as one of the introductory criteria (without the completion of which the entrant will not be enrolled).
  3. Does the Polish card enable you to study for free in private schools? No. The Polish card holders go to non-state-owned educational institutions on general systems, like all entrants.
  4. How to get a scholarship (a discount on studying) while studying? In most cases, for obtaining scholarships for academic achievement (Rector’s, Decan’s), you must have a semester grade of no less than 4,1 or 4,5 points and take an active part in the life of the university. At the end of the semester, the student must independently apply to the decan’s office for a scholarship, justifying the reasons (why he deserves it). Scholarships are for a semester of time.
