Over 500 Ukrainian students have enrolled at the University of Warsaw during the current recruitment period, nearly double the previous period, the university’s spokesperson told PAP on Wednesday.
Anna Modzelewska said the higher influx of Ukrainian students is an effect of Ukraine’s ongoing defensive war against Russia.
The university is ready to welcome 2,437 Ukrainian students for the 2022/23 academic year in addition to its regular enrolment, Modzelewska added.
Among the most popular faculties chosen by Ukrainian students are international relations (74 enrolments), journalism and media (60), Ukrainian studies (55) and logistics/media administration (54).
Ukrainians are the largest group of foreign students in Poland.
