Interstudent 2024 – competition for the best foreign student in Poland

This is the 14th edition of the Interstudent competition, in which we reward the best foreign students who study at Polish universities. We are looking for good students, interesting and ambitious people, but above all active and involved in the academic environment of their university. And every year, thanks to cooperation with universities, we find many excellent candidates.

We want to present foreign students who study, work socially, get involved in the life of their communities. They are an example for colleagues and ambassadors of Polish universities in their countries.

We are waiting for applications until December 8th, 2023. Then the Jury, headed by prof. Arkadiusz Mężyk, chairman of KRASP, will meet and select the winners. Traditionally, we will award prizes in three basic categories: bachelor’s studies, master’s studies and doctoral studies. The jury may also award a Special Prize for special achievements and commitment.

The official announcement of the results of the Interstudent 2024 competition will take place on February 8, 2024 during the conference “Foreign students in Poland 2024”, hosted by the Poznan University of Technology.
