Situated in the center of Europe, Poland is among the largest and most populous countries in the region – ninth largest in Europe by area, and sixth in the European Union (EU) by population. Poland has enjoyed strong economic growth in recent years, particularly since joining the EU in 2004; in the midst of the economic crisis of 2009, Poland was the only European nation to report economic expansion. A large part of the Polish higher education market is made up of private colleges and universities.

There are about 310 privately owned universities and colleges and 138 state schools of higher learning. This has resulted in a high level of competition that has given Poland lower prices for studying than in many other European countries. The higher education system is one of high quality and all leading universities offer programmes thought in English, within study areas such as medicine, engineering, humanities, business and finance. More than 100 higher education institutions in Poland currently offer study programmes in English. Poland has taken active part in the Bologna Process.

The Bologna Process, launched with the Bologna Declaration, of 1999, is one of the main voluntary processes at European level, as it is nowadays implemented in 47 states, which define the European Higher Education Area (EHEA). Poland is taking part in it as well.

As the main objective of the Bologna Process since its inception in 1999, the EHEA was meant to ensure more comparable, compatible and coherent systems of higher education in Europe.

Between 1999 – 2010, all the efforts of the Bologna Process members (were targeted to creating  the European Higher Education Area, that became reality with the Budapest-Vienna Declaration  of March, 2010.

The next decade will be aimed at consolidating the EHEA.
