Medical Poland Admission Office for last 5 years has been consequently helping Irish and all international students who dream of studying medicine or veterinary medicine in the heart of Europe. We were happy to learn from Polish Ministry of Education’s report that in August 2018 there were 247 Irish students in Poland and majority of them, 233 students, had chosen to study medicine and veterinary medicine programs through English in Poland. “Irish young and well educated students have decided to start their medical and veterinary career at the universities of Wroclaw, Bialystok, Poznan, Warsaw, but the favorite medical university remains Collegium Medicum in Bydgoszcz. In August 2018 there were 43 students from Ireland and this number increased in October 2018 to 59 studying medicine in English” says Adam Krawczyk, Head of Medical Poland Admission Office. We expect this trend to continue as we can see the enormous interest in studying medicine, dentistry and veterinary abroad and increasingly often in Poland.
