Hi!
I'm new in here, and if the content of the post is improper I will remove it.

During my 7years work with foreign students I've noticed that most of them are coming to Poland without any knowledge about our culture, society and life in here. Of course during studying in Poland their getting familiar with it, but my idea is to create a point which helps foreigners who wants to study in Poland from the beginning. I'm wondering what would be your opinion about my idea? Would you use that kind of assist?

I'm starting with candidates - preparing list of possibilities in specific field of studies.Then helping with submissions, and after enroll I'm preparing a good place to stay in Poland (it's obvious that prices for me would be lower, I know it, because I was helping my students already).

Thank you for your time, I would appreciate your opinion about my idea :)

Do you mean a website? You could give it a try. There are lots of sites that give information on life in Poland for people who are considering studying there, but some personal support would be a new angle. I presume your services would be free so you'd need your site to generate some revenue from advertisers or whatever, otherwise I don't think it's realistic as, if the website becomes popular, you could spend a huge amount of time sorting out things for people and you couldn't afford to do that for free.

Absolutely!

The thing is too that acculturating goes a lot farther than just knowing the language. Having a solid background in the local economy, job market, yes of course local customs (both spoken as well as unspoken) and even recent history, can surely make one's sojourn abroad that much more meaningful, for themselves, but also for their Polish contacts. This shows sincere interest, not merely lip service, in learning to live in a foreign country.
