Final steps after receiving the university acceptance letter
Firstly: Woo hoo! You got in!
Secondly: Let’s make a shortlist of things you should prepare and the errands you need to run once you get there.
- As an EU/EEA student, you won’t need a VISA, but no matter what country you come from, you will need to apply for a temporary residence permit, as your first degree and Master’s degree will surely be longer than three months.
- Don’t forget to call your university’s International Relations Office and get more information on the more practical aspects, like coming to Poland, medical care and insurances, your driving license, and more.
- If you’re a non-EU/EEA student, for the VISA you’ll need (or at least it’s highly recommended) to get medical insurance in your home country or immediately after you arrive. If you don’t have this covered, you will have to pay every health service you will get and that will rack your bill to a substantial sum.
- For EU/EEA students: you’re not off the hook: get your European Health Insurance Card (EHIC), or else you won’t be eligible for free health insurance.
