QS Best Student Cities ranking: 108th  

Wroclaw is the capital of Lower Silesia and is often dubbed ‘the Meeting Place’ of Poland. Located in western Poland on the banks of the Oder river, Wroclaw is home to over one million people, and as a result is the fourth largest city in Poland.

The city is a brand new entrant in the QS Best Student Cities ranking this year, achieving a position of 108th place.

Those who are interested in studying in Wroclaw will be pleased to know the city ranks third in the world for affordability. Tuition fees in Poland are free for Polish citizens, but international students can still benefit from this policy if they study a course taught in the Polish language and sit the same entrance exams as Polish students.

Wroclaw currently has two world class universities featured in the QS World University Rankings®: Wrocław University of Science and Technology and University of Wroclaw. Both institutions are notable for their very high research output.

With charming parks, captivating churches and a comprehensive network of bridges and islands, it’s unsurprising Wroclaw performs well in the ranking’s desirability indicator, ranking in the world’s top 100.

Visiting the city’s market square is a must, with a plethora of cafes, restaurants and shops to explore. There are also plenty of events going on throughout the year, so you’ll always find something new to do in between lectures.

This social city also has plenty of opportunities for graduates who decide to stay in the city, with a great deal of international firms setting up offices here, including Nokia, IBM, Hewlett Packard and Google, many of whom look to recruit Wroclaw graduates directly.
