I just checked in France, it seems that during your studies, you don't have to change it. Of course, can't be sure it's the same in Poland.

Although, your license may need to be translated into Polish at least.

2-can I drive in poland with an international driver's license (even though i'm polish ) ?

With an international driver's license, I'd say yes...

Did you try to contact the Embassy of Syria in Poland? They probably know much better than me ;)

It's similar question to the one asked here:
https://polishforums.com/law/poland-acknowledge-malaysian-japanese-66200/

Syria is not on the list of Vienna Convention, so you cannot use Syrian driving license even temporarily. You should make international driving license or go to country which recognize Syrian driving license and has signed Vienna Convention (maybe Turkey). There you could pay for issuing local driving license based on your Syrian and with it come to Poland.

I don't know if you can ask in Poland for issuing new driving license based on your Syrian. I know that it's possible when someone has Ukrainian driving license, but we have special agreement with Ukraine.

Dany,

From my own experience:

Syrian license no.
Qatari license no.
Emirati license yes but must be valid.
Canadian license yes but must be valid.
