    Polish computer science student, Michał Gerasimiuk admitted to doctoral studies at eight top American universities

    Michał Gerasimiuk, a graduate of the High School Complex No. 2 and a Yale student, was admitted to doctoral studies at eight top American universities.

    Among the universities where a Pole can obtain a doctoral degree are Harvard, Stanford, and Yale, as well as: UC Berkeley, Carnegie Mellon University, Cornell University, University of Michigan, and The University of Texas at Austin.

    As a second-year high school student, Michał received a scholarship from the Prime Minister for the 2017/2018 school year for outstanding progress in learning. Earlier, as a junior high school student, he was a laureate of the English Language Olympiad for high school students. He is currently studying at Yale University (USA) in his fourth year.

    Now he faces a difficult choice of further academic career path

    “The number of universities is not that important to me. What mattered to me, is that I would get the opportunity to cooperate with people whose scientific achievements interest me, although it is nice to get confirmation from so many renowned faculties that my experiences and ideas are valuable.”,

    says Gerasimiuk, quoted in the press release.

    The young IT specialist is a consultant to the Ivy Poland Academy – a company specializing in supporting and promoting the education of Poles at the best European and American universities, helping its students apply for studies and develop their professional careers.

    “This extraordinary achievement of Michał shows that with hard work and determination you can achieve success on an international level. His abilities, perseverance and passion for learning will certainly be valuable for any university where he will continue his education at the doctoral level. It is a great success, hardly anyone gets into so many universities!”,
