Perspektywy Report on International Students in Poland 2014

 (Warsaw, 28 October 2014) Perspektywy Education Foundation published – for the fifth time now – the International Students in Poland 2014 Report, presenting in a comprehensive manner the overall situation and the newest trends in internationalisation of the Polish higher education. There are currently 35,983 international students from 149 countries studying in the Polish higher education institutions. This means an increase by almost 7,000 – 23% – over the previous academic year alone.

The report gives a full and comprehensive picture of this problem, so important for higher education both on the global scale and for each country individually. Internationalisation of higher education is one of the indicators of education development in the last decades of the 20th century and the first ones of the 21st. Over 4.5 million students study outside of their native land today and their number increases systematically. The advantages of this process are numerous and have been widely documented already. The main advantages are to the students themselves, but also their native and host countries.
