Poland launches an internationalization strategy

Poland’s international student population has increased remarkably in last few years but the Polish higher education still remains among least internationalized of European Union countries as the international students are just 2.3% of the total student population. A new government strategy and financial commitment to international educations signals that the situation will be changed soon. Recently, the Polish Ministry of Science signed the Higher Education Internationalization Program that aligns with a new goal announced at the beginning of the year: Poland wants to host 1,00,000 foreign students by 2020. According to a recent analysis by Warsaw-based Perspektywy Education Foundation, there are over 46,000 foreign students in Poland, an increase of more than 10,000 from the previous year. Opportunities for recruitment continue to exist in Poland, but joint research collaboration, staff and faculty exchange, and international and joint graduate programs appear to be the most promising given the recent priorities of the Polish Ministry of Science and Higher Education.
