Study in English for foreigners costs money in Poland. Studies for people out of EU costs many regardless language.
This website presents universities offering programs in English.
study in poland.

Best are "Politechnika" - as they teach technical professions which are currently best payed in Poland (except of management positions of other professions) and Medical schools (for obvious reasons).

This is top 10:

1. Uniwersytet Jagielloński
2. Uniwersytet Warszawski
3. Uniwersytet im. Adama Mickiewicza w Poznaniu
4. Politechnika Warszawska
5. Politechnika Wrocławska
6. Akademia Górniczo-Hutnicza im. Stanisława Staszica w Krakowie
7. Uniwersytet Wrocławski
8. Politechnika £ódzka
9. Uniwersytet Mikołaja Kopernika w Toruniu
10. Uniwersytet Medyczny im. Karola Marcinkowskiego w Poznaniu

Which is the best university to study in Poland ?

Hello everyone, I just finished by B.E in electronics and communication engineering in India. I am willing to study MSc Telecommunication engineering in poland. Warsaw University of Technology, Wroclaw university of technology and AGH university of science and technology are universities that offering the course but I don't know which is the best university to study. And I was heard somes stories that Programmes that are taught in english aren't that good and they only exist to mint money...I have no idea about that, How true is that and how will be my future once I finished my MSc in poland ?

Help needed

If you want to earn a saleable masters, then either study at a good university in your own country, or in a country that spends a lot on R&D: the richer European countries like Switzerland, Germany, the Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden and Norway; the English speaking countries, the United States, the united Kingdom, Canada, Australia and New Zealand; and the richer Asian countries, South Korea, Japan, Taiwan and Singapore. Especially try to study in the country you wish to eventually live and work in.

The thing about English-language courses in Poland being inferior to Polish-language courses is generally true. Less so for engineering courses.

The main disadvantages of studying in Poland are:

1) Courses are heavy on theory, and light on practice. Lab facilities are poorly stocked with antiquated equipment.

2) Polish universities do not have strong ties to business and industry, so making useful professional contacts is quite difficult, especially if you do not speak fluent Polish.

3) There is very little R&D done in Poland. The emphasis is on production, especially outsourced production of components, Therefore, interesting research projects are far and few between, and generally go to those in the Polish-language courses.

4) The degrees from English-language courses are not as valued by employers in richer countries.

5) There are no scholarships or student loans available, and finding a part-time job is difficult or next to impossible unless you have some advanced exotic coding skills that are highly in demand.

Studying at a good IIT is by far a better option for you than studying in English even at the best engineering schools in Poland. By far the best option is to study in the country in which you wish to eventually work and live.

Having had occasion while staying in various European countries to sit in on any number of courses for foreigners, taught typically in what passes these days for "international English", I'd have to side with DominicB on this one:-)

In my experience, even as late as the early part of the millenium, the scenario of a German, Pole, Spaniard, Italian etc. as non-native English speakers (no matter how competent in their field) instructing other non-native speakers of English in a language other than their own, is often rather farcical, whereby neither group completely understands the other either thoroughly or accurately, despite the best of intentions on either side!

Now, I won't say it's a rip off exactly, only, that it might not be the best use of one's money.

For non-STEM fields, it is a rip off, with very very few exceptions. For STEM fields, particularly engineering, it is, as you say, generally a poor investment of time and money rather than a rip off.
