Health insurance

Health insurance is obligatory for all incoming students. EU students have to bring their European Health Insurance Card (EHIC). Non-EU students should be covered by health insurance in their home country. Before departure please confirm with your insurance company exactly what level of medical coverage you are entitled to in Poland and what are the reimbursement procedures.

Living expenses

The cost of living in Poland is fairly low. You can expect to spend about 1000-1500 PLN per month (if you use our hall of residence). Of course the expenses may vary depending on personal needs and type of accommodation.
