Erasmus policy statement



Akademia Jagiellońska is a higher education institution established in 2003, offering bachelor and master programs in the social sciences. In the first decade of existence, Akademia endeavored and succeeded to establish its reputation in the local, regional and national arena. Its purpose was focused upon developing its research and educational activity so as to reach the highest quality, recognizable by other educational institutions, as well as the job market. After achieving this goal, Akademia Jagiellońska focused on advancing its international relations in order to create further advantages for the benefit of Kolegium‘s students and staff.
Participating in the Erasmus Program has been an integral part of Akademia Jagiellońska institutional strategy of internationalization and modernization.
In light of this goal Akademia Jagiellońska develops bilateral and multilateral relations with foreign partners that share a similar profile and similar educational values, in order to establish an educational network within which the exchange of ideas, as well as the exchange of students and staff, can be conducted. Primarily, Akademia Jagiellońska already has and intends to seek more partners in the European Union countries, as such cooperation can be based on the proximity of their educational systems developed under the Bologna Process (e.g., Qualifications Framework of the European Higher Education Area, ECTS system, etc.). In Akademia Jagiellońska we believe that all these efforts will contribute towards enhancing the European Education Area.

The aim of Akademia Jagiellońska is to facilitate both its students and staff participation in mobility programs. The mobility programs provide Akademia’s staff with the experience of working in a multinational and multilingual environment and foster an acquaintance with new methods of teaching and common values. After such exchanges, the staff of Akademia Jagiellońska is able to deliver an even higher quality of education to Akademia’s students. In this way, students indirectly benefit from the participation of staff in mobility programs, and hopefully, are inspired to participate in student mobility programs to further enhance their educational experience.

Comparison of education systems in Europe








Health insurance

Health insurance is mandatory for all students for the entire duration of their stay in Poland. The students from non-EU/EEA countries are recommended to buy medical insurance in their home country or immediately after their arrival to Poland. Otherwise students are required to pay for any health service they receive. Foreign students are also advised to purchase third party liability insurance and accident insurance.
EU citizens staying in Poland are eligible for free health service, providing they present their European Health Insurance Card (EHIC).  EU citizens not having insurance in their country of residence and non-EU citizens may sign insurance agreement with the Polish Health Insurance Fund (NFZ – Narodowy Fundusz Zdrowia) and purchase insurance for the monthly fee of around 40 PLN.
Under bilateral agreements the citizens of the U.K., Sweden and Slovakia are entitled to free medical care.
Under an agreement with the Czech Republic Czech students are entitled to necessary medical care in cases of sudden illness or accident.
Optionally, you can buy additional insurance with the selected insurance company.

The European Commission (EC) has developed a useful multi-language free phone app, which explains how to use the EHIC card in different countries within the European Union (EU). It summarises the treatments, costs, procedure for reimbursement and emergency numbers.
