There are 65 793 foreign students from 166 countries studying in Poland, over 8,500 more than a year ago (15% increase). Since 2005, Polish universities have consistently increased their numbers. Foreign students currently make up 4.88% of the total number of students in the country (eight years ago the figure was only 0.61%, in the academic year 2015/2016 - 4.07%). The influence on the growing number of foreigners at Polish universities is, among others, active participation in the "Study in Poland" program, other activities at the central level and marketing activities of universities.
