Enrollment requirements differ between various institutions, but it is necessary to have a secondary school diploma.

Most of the bachelor programs are taught in Polish, but some are available in English.

To apply for a master degree, prospective students have to provide a bachelor diploma and the evidence of language proficiency (English or Polish). Some universities also require motivation letters, personal essays and letters of recommendation. Professional schools may also organize additional tests or require a portfolio. Master degree (Magister) could be obtained after 2-2,5 years of studies.

PhD programs are intended for those who already have a Master (or equivalent) degree and plan to pursue a career in academia. In order to get a PhD, students have to pass an exam and defend a dissertation in front of academic commission in the university.
