The country spends heavily on education, training and research – investment which pays dividends by delivering one of the best-qualified workforces in the world.

Student accommodation in Poland, for both exchange and degree students, is usually organized by established student housing foundations. In some university towns accommodation can also be arranged through the student unions themselves, or through regional student clubs or faculty organizations. Many towns and municipalities also have dormitories maintained by the municipal community or the educational institution.

The monthly rent varies from one study location to another, and also depending on the size and type of the student flat in question. The average monthly rent for a single room in a shared student flat ranges from approximately 160€ to 340€ (according to the 2010 SOA statistics). Single apartments or family flats are also available, but the rent rate is higher in these non-shared apartments.

You only need to bear for your living expenses, such as accommodation, food, transport and health insurance. The cost of living in Poland is approx. Euro 650 per month according to the official standards; it is difficult to say exactly how much money a student in Poland needs per month. The cost of living varies from city to city. Generally students can live on less money in smaller cities than in large cities. And, of course, the amount of money you will need greatly depends on how economically you live.

Average monthly expenses for rent and utilities

Room in a student hall of residence: € 200
Room in a shared flat: € 245
Flat by yourself: € 315
