There are 57 119 international students from 157 countries studying in Poland in 2015/16 academic year, 10.000 more than a year ago (23% increase). Currently international students make up 4.1% of the total student body in the country (ten years ago the figure was only 0.6%, in 2015 - 3.1%).
Increase of the internationalisation factor is due not only to the growing number of foreigners, but also to the decrease of the total number of students in Poland. In the academic year 2015/16 there are 1,405,133 people studying at the Polish universities – over 64,254 students fewer than in the previous year, and over 200,000 fewer than three years ago.

At first sight, Poland and China have nothing in common. They are located thousands miles apart and their economies are based on totally different models. Their cultures and languages differ so much that it’s almost impossible to communicate. One may ask, is a genuine dialogue between these two worlds possible? This question’s bothered us for a long time, and that’s how we came up with the idea of the WARSAW – BEIJING FORUM in 2014.
