A document certifying the level of education completed issued outside of Poland can be deemed equivalent with one of the documents issued in Poland on the basis of international agreements, legal regulation or by being nostrified. Nostrification is a procedure leading to establishing an equal certificate, diploma or academic title to one obtained abroad. Check below whether you need to nostrify your documents.
You can complete nostrification of your certificate or diploma before taking part in the admissions and enclose it to the documents submitted. But as the deadline for submitting nostrification is set to the end of the first semester of your studies, you may also take care of this obligation after you enroll.

  • Maturity certificates obtained abroad are deemed equal with a Polish maturity certificate on the basis of international agreements Poland has signed with other countries. Details on international agreements in the field of education can be found on the Ministry of Science and Higher Education website (in Polish only).

    If a certificate equivalence is not a subject of any international agreements, its status as an equivalent of a Polish maturity certificate can only be confirmed with a nostrification.

    Nostrification of maturity certificates applies to those candidates whose maturity certificates have been obtained outside of Poland, in a country with which Poland has not signed an international agreement or when the agreement signed does not include document equivalence as a subject. International Baccalaureate diploma and European Baccalaureate certificate are accepted by Polish universities without a nostrification.

    Maturity certificates are nostrified by Polish voivodeship education offices (Kuratoria Oświaty)
    appropriate based on the place of residence of the person applying for a nostrification or based on the
    location of the institution for which the document is intended.

    The closest voivodeship education office (Kuratorium Oświaty) you will find in Warsaw by address: ul. Aleje Jerozolimskie 32, office hours: 8:00-16:00, from Monday till Friday,

There is also no need to nostrify documents obtained in the countries with which Poland has signed an agreement about mutual recognition of documents (the list of such agreements can be found on the Ministry of Science and Higher Education website (in Polish only)).
