Medical Poland Admission Office - Statement on Covid-19 - 11th March 2020, 19:30 (GMT)

 

By the decision of the Prime Minister of Poland, all universities will remain closed and classes are canceled from 12 to 25 March 2020 (2 weeks).

 

As of today (11th March 2020, 19:30 GMT), there are 31 Covid-19 cases reported in Poland , which is a very low number relative to other EU countries and Poland's population. The Polish government is taking a very conservative approach to managing the spread of the disease though, hence all schools, universities, cinemas, theatres etc. will remain closed until 25th March. The location breakdown of cases can be found here.

 

The Polish Health Minister issued statements strongly advising to remain in the country and not travel abroad, especially to high-risk countries. If one decides to leave, they do it at their own risk. It is suggested to avoid the airports, shopping malls and other potentially crowded places. It is also recommended that to refrain from leaving home to participate in social events or other gatherings and keeping hygiene. 

 

Due to these restrictions, all Open Days and university visits scheduled by the Medical Poland Admission Office have now been cancelled until further notice. Due to increased risk of infection when travelling, we also advise not to travel at this stage.

 

Please bear in mind that the country authorities might decide to close the borders in order to prevent travellers from going in and out of the country. Also, if you are coming to Poland from abroad, you might not be permitted to enter the country or you might be subjected to compulsory quarantine. For those who are staying in Poland we highly suggest to stay at their room / apartment most of the time at least 14 days.  

 

More information can be found on the Polish Department of Health’s website - Important! What you should know about the coronavirus - please read it with attention - Remember if you are exhibiting coronavirus symptoms, you must call emergency services and not have any personal contact with other people. Information hotline number: 800 190 590 - 24/7.

Following around 100 Irish high school graduates who headed to study in Poland in 2019, Medical Poland Admission Office is holding an Open Day on 24th October in Dublin to present some of the optiona available in the heart of Europe.

This Autumn a record 100+ Irish will join almost 300 colleagues studying already in Poland. Getting a medical or veterinary degree abroad is no longer an option but a necessity for many excellent Leaving Cert students as it becomes increasingly difficult to get a place at Irish medical (and only one veterinary) schools. University College Dublin will take around 80 Irish students for Veterinary Medicine and 90 for Medicine in 2019. This level of restriction on places leaves many taking courses that are not their first choice in the hope that on completion of their degree programme they will take an alternative route into medicine.
