We all have 'views' on immigration
I wasn't talking about immigration at all. Exceedingly few of the students and workers from third-world countries have any intention of settling in Poland. They are all focused on getting into the rich countries of western Europe, particularly the UK. Very few of the students will complete their degrees once they discover that those degrees are not worth much in terms of getting a job in richer countries. Most will either return home or migrate, legally or illegally, to greener pastures at the first opportunity. This is particularly true for those who cannot afford to finance their studies and stay in Poland without working.
Out of the several hundred Indian students who start studies in Poland this year, more than half will be gone before a year is up, and a small fraction will stay long enough to actually earn a degree, predominantly those who can afford to pay and who study engineering fields. The rest are getting scammed to provide discretionary cash for university rectors, who couldn't care less about the drop out rate among third-world students who are going to return home broke and broken or abscond to greener pastures anyway. It doesn't harm then any as there will always be an abundant supply of gullible and desperate third-worlders to fleece the next academic year.
Only a handful, at best, will learn Polish and stay beyond the five-year mark to settle. As long as employment opportunities and wages in the west are so much higher than in Poland, Poland will remain a country that draws little in the way of immigration, except from the Ukraine and Belarus (and, weirdly, a tiny number of Poles and descendants of Poles, primarily, but not only, from the US, of a markedly conservative bent who want to move to a country that is practically devoid of immigrants). Third-worlders will continue to view Poland solely as a back door or stepping stone to better opportunities in the west.
Jon doesn't seem to realize that a poor Indian family has to go through hell to raise the money to send their child to study in Poland. They take a second or third mortgage on the family farm, sell what little belongings they have, take out criminally extortionary loans, sell themselves into indentured servitude, prostitute themselves and their other children, and even sell kidneys. To assure them that doing so is a good idea on the extremely remote chance that their kid will find a job to finance the rest is very irresponsible, as is assuring them that a degree from an English-language course at a Polish university is worth anything on the job market. A lot of these kids will have to go home and explain to their parents that the family fortune has been totally wiped out. Or make their way to Calais to sneak aboard a truck bound for the UK. The livelihood of a lot of people are at risk, and studying in Poland for a degree that no employer values is too great a risk to take with stakes so high. Might as well spend the money on lottery tickets.
