Erasmus policy statement


ECHE 2021-2027

The Jagiellonian College is a higher education institution established in 2003. During the first ten years of its history, the College‘s priority was to establish its reputation in the local, regional and national arena. Its purpose was focused upon developing its educational activity so as to reach the highest quality, recognizable by other educational institutions, as well as the job market. After achieving this goal, the College intends to focus on advancing its international relations in order to create further advantages for the benefit of the College‘s students and staff.

In light of this goal the College aims to develop bilateral and multilateral relations with foreign partners that share a similar profile and similar educational values, in order to establish an educational network within with the exchange of ideas, as well as the exchange of students and staff, can be conducted. Primarily, the College intends to seek partners in the European Union countries, as such a cooperation can be based on the proximity of their educational systems developed under the Bologna Process (e.g., Qualifications Framework of the European Higher Education Area, ECTS system, etc.). Among the EU countries, the College especially intends to interact with the higher education institutions in Spain, Italy, Hungary and the Czech Republic.

The aim of the College is to facilitate its students’- and particularly its staff’s- participation in mobility programmes. The mobility programmes will give College staff the experience of working in a multinational and multilingual environment, and will foster an acquaintance with new methods of teaching. After such exchanges, the College staff will be able to deliver an even higher quality of education to the College’s students. In this way, students will directly benefit from the participation of staff in mobility programmes, and hopefully will be inspired to participate in student mobility programmes to further enhance their educational experience. The College will give a special focus to student mobility programmes for first and second cycle students.

Health insurance

Health insurance is mandatory for all students for the entire duration of their stay in Poland. The students from non-EU/EEA countries are recommended to buy medical insurance in their home country or immediately after their arrival to Poland. Otherwise students are required to pay for any health service they receive. Foreign students are also advised to purchase third party liability insurance and accident insurance.
EU citizens staying in Poland are eligible for free health service, providing they present their European Health Insurance Card (EHIC).  EU citizens not having insurance in their country of residence and non-EU citizens may sign insurance agreement with the Polish Health Insurance Fund (NFZ – Narodowy Fundusz Zdrowia) and purchase insurance for the monthly fee of around 40 PLN.
Under bilateral agreements the citizens of the U.K., Sweden and Slovakia are entitled to free medical care.
Under an agreement with the Czech Republic Czech students are entitled to necessary medical care in cases of sudden illness or accident.
Optionally, you can buy additional insurance with the selected insurance company.

The European Commission (EC) has developed a useful multi-language free phone app, which explains how to use the EHIC card in different countries within the European Union (EU). It summarises the treatments, costs, procedure for reimbursement and emergency numbers.
