The Medical Poland Admission Office invites you to an online Open Day about studying nursing in English in Poland. Hundreds of Irish students have already chosen to study medicine, dentistry, veterinary and nursing in Poland. The event is to encourage students and their families to consider applying to nursing programmes at Polish public universities. 

Note: Upon completion of the 3-year Bachelor programme Irish graduates will typically benefit from the Automatic Recognition of qualifications and register as General nurse with NMBI.

Recognising the global need for more qualified nurses, Medical Poland is providing all accepted applicants with a Medical Poland Health package free of charge. More info here

As the world is facing a global nurses shortage and according to WHO report, the world is lacking 5.9m nurses and is facing an ageing nursing workforce. This “threatens the stability” of nursing, particularly in Europe, and especially in light of COVID-19.

Some of the options in Poland include:

  1. Medical University of Gdańsk

  2. Nicolaus Copernicus University Collegium Medicum in Bydgoszcz

Gdańsk is one of the most international cities in Poland, with thousands of foreign students. While studying in this city one wouldn't have to give up your social life due to an abundance of student bars and plenty of different events including game weekends, museum nights, vegan food festivals, eco events and the famous Open’er Festival, a music festival taking place once a year near Gdańsk which welcomes a variety of Polish and also international singers and rappers. Last but not least the city also has a huge advantage that other central-located cities in Poland do not have - closeness to the sea. 

In 2020, Bydgoszcz took 10th place in an European Best Destinations contest, outperforming Rome, Menorca and ranking just behind Paris. Its beautiful, newly-renovated old town and the Mill Island are worth checking out. It is also the most popular university among Irish citizens. 

One of Polish major advantages is a low living cost. Living as a  student is prominently more affordable in Poland than in most European Union countries. Monthly average expenses fluctuate around 400 EUR, including dormitory fees, bills, transport etc.

Another benefit of applying for a university in Poland with our Medical Poland Admission Office is the support. Not only do we help with the paperwork but also as a trustworthy body we are at one’s disposal whenever in need. The Support Team will help you find a suitable accommodation, the Education Team will help you better prepare for any interviews or exams coming your way whether you are an applicant or a newly minded university student. 

For the last 6 years the  Medical Poland Admission Office has been consequently helping Irish and all international students whose dream is to study medical sciences or veterinary medicine abroad in English.
