Primary school
Primary school usually starts at seven years old. Following changes introduced by 2016 act “Law on School Education” primary school was extended to 8 years.
Junior high school
Until 2019, junior high school (gimnazjum) covered lower secondary education and ended general basic education for three years. Polish language, history, civic education, two foreign languages, mathematics, physics and astronomy, chemistry, biology, geography, fine arts/music, technology, information technology, physical education, and religion or ethics were among the subjects covered.
Upper secondary education
Upper secondary education begins at the conclusion of full-time compulsory education and prepares students for direct entry into the labour market and/or tertiary (higher) education.
General education can be pursued in general secondary schools (liceum): after three years, students can pass the “Matura,” which allows them to continue their education at a higher level. The Matura is a four-year technical school programme that culminates in the Matura. Their main goal is to teach jobs and trades like accountant, mechanic, electronics specialist, and salesperson.
Education after high school
Poland follows the Bologna scheme, with the majority of its tertiary level programmes divided into two cycles: a three-year bachelor’s degree followed by a two-year master’s degree.
