    Celebrating 20 Years of Erasmus Program in Poland

    For over two decades, the Erasmus program has been a transformative force for Polish students, fostering international cooperation and academic exchange. Since Poland’s accession to the European Union in 2004, over 266,000 Polish students have participated in the program, with Spain, Germany, and Italy being the most popular destinations.

    A Shift in Dynamics: Poland’s Growing Appeal

    Initially outnumbered by Polish outbound students, the influx of international students to Poland has steadily increased, with the country emerging as a sought-after destination within the Erasmus framework. Poland now stands as the sixth most popular destination for Erasmus students in Europe, reflecting its rising academic appeal.

    As part of the broader Erasmus+ initiative, Poland has allocated €262 million in 2024 to support educational projects, enabling approximately 15,000 Polish students to pursue studies abroad. This year, a new provision allows students to receive funding for travel to their study destinations, enhancing accessibility and mobility.

    Building on Renaissance Ideals: Erasmus Legacy Continues

    Named after the renowned Renaissance scholar Erasmus of Rotterdam, the program embodies his spirit of intellectual curiosity and cross-cultural engagement. Through its evolution from Sokrates to Erasmus+, the initiative remains committed to advancing international collaboration and fostering a deeper understanding among students across Europe.
