    Poznan and tuition fees for EU students

    Advertisements



    Hi there,

    Am sort of new to this forum lark so please be gentle.

    I was wondering if anyone knew the score for studying at Poznan and whether EU citizens still had to pay the full tuition fees. After Poland's entry into the EU tuition fees should be the same for an EU student as for a Polish student, theoretically at least. Does anybody know if this is true or not?

    Is this the same for other European schools? I know, from painful experience, that one can be accepted into a Swedish university and be treated the same in terms of fees as a Swedish student. (Finding even a cardboard box to live in is quite another matter...)

    Would be very grateful for any information people can give. I tried searching the forums but couldn't find anything on this subject. Maybe I am being inept.

    Just quickly, could anyone tell me if the 4 year courses offered by Poznan et al would allow one to practice in Europe too?

    Many many thanks.

    The way they get around this is to either:

    a) differentiate between native language and foreign language programs, by charging everyone tuition for foreign language programs while restricted entry exists to native language programs by the native national/local exam (therefore supercompetitive).

    b) include a temporary or permanent residency requirement that determines your tuition status before entry into either program.

    The answer to this is maybe, as the degree may or may not be accepted for automatic registration. In order for the degree to be accepted, it has to meet certain requirements.

    Also, as each country in the EU makes up its own rules as to what they accept, you'd be best served by asking the regulatory agency of whatever country you'd like to practice in whether it will fit their requirements.

    Tack så mycket

    Thank you very much indeed for your (extremely fast) reply.

    Oh well, must get back to work to try and save even more money for tuition fees.

    Pums

    Miklos answered well on this. But as a side note I have a British guy in my class and he has to pay in Euro's rather than US dollars. So he pays more than I do and he's an EU person.

    Yeah, European 4 yr. programs (I.e. US-based curriculum) can charge whatever they want. In theory, EU-students should pay the same (sometimes nothing) as nationals. However, there's lots of loopholes, not only residency, but it's also legal to place quotas on non-nationals for certain programs, including medicine.
