Advantages of Polish Studies
Polish in Demand
Polish is the sixth language of the European Union by speakers as percentage of the EU population, spoken by more than 45 million people, among which 38 million live in Poland. It is expanding around the world. Poles have traveled and migrated for centuries, so you can meet them nearly everywhere.
The knowledge of Polish will open your eyes and ears to other related Slavic languages, e.g. Czech and Slovak, Russian, Belorussian and Ukrainian, Slovene, Serbian, Croatian, Macedonian and Bulgarian. We have borrowings from Latin, Greek, Czech, German, French, Italian, but also from Turkish, Mongolian, Hungarian, Romanian, Yiddish, etc.
Opole as well as our University are extremely hospitable places. This is the smallest of capitals of Poland’s 16 districts, combining administration hub importance with nice town characteristics. We emulate it for our bachelor programme carried at a fine University but in small group with a personal approach to each and every of our students. You are going to belong here!
