.International students prioritise universities with a high level of education and strong rankings in CWUR, QS and ARWU. Affordable tuition fees and relatively low costs of living also appear important. Most Polish universities, including the AGH University of Krakow, have excellent scientific facilities and internationally accomplished professors. Students and their parents value the safety of studying in Poland, especially in cities such as Krakow, which is known for its welcoming and diverse environment. The transparent and relatively easy, even intuitive, recruitment process for foreign candidates plays an important role as well.

AGH international students feel at home here thanks to the conveniently located Student Campus with its comprehensive infrastructure and comfortable dormitories. AGH Student Council supports development opportunities for foreign students, another crucial aspect for candidates. Integration meetings, welcome dinners, welcome packs and joint trips ensure that everyone who stays within the walls of AGH quickly learns the meaning of our slogan, ‘Knowledge – Passion – Bond’, with an emphasis on a family atmosphere and lasting friendships.

.The National Agency for Academic Exchange has greatly assisted in generating interest among young people from outside Poland by hosting such events as educational fairs or embassy meetings. As a result, we have developed active relations with countries such as India, Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan. Our plan is to host a fair in London for young people with Polish roots.
