The U.S. Embassy in Warsaw cooperates with the Polish-U.S. Fulbright Commission on promoting study in the U.S. Persons interested at pursuing education in the US should visit an Educational Advising Center at the Fulbright Commission that provides services to Polish citizens interested in university and graduate study in the U.S. The Center has a large collection of up-to-date catalogs and guides, in print and electronic formats, with information on the American system of higher education and the programs of various universities. It includes information on the admissions process, necessary documentation and fees, and required standardized tests. Students who are interested in individual advising sessions can make an appointment with the Educational Advisor Aleksandra Augustyniak. You can send her an e-mail or make a call:

The US embassy in Warsaw has also a collection of books and materials useful for students applying for American schools. Click here to see their titles. You can review them at the American Resource Information Center located at ul. Piękna 14a (embassy’s building next to the consulate).
Requirements for admission vary considerably among U.S. institutions. All require a strong secondary school record. Most require one or more standardized tests such as TOEFL (which measures the candidate’s ability in English), SAT (a general knowledge exam), GRE (for post-graduate programs), GMAT (for business programs) or USMLE (a medical licensing exam).
The cost of study in the U.S. varies at each institution and may become very important criteria when choosing the best program of study. The Educational Advisor will provide necessary information on possible financial aid and will guide how to apply for them.
